Rain preview: Japan Studio's other Ico heir | Eurogamer

The Last Guardian may still be AWOL, but there's another game from Sony's Japan Studio that takes on Team Ico's spirit.

By Martin Robinson

Of all Sony's philanthropic ideals - the all-inclusive approach to indie developers, the generosity of PlayStation Plus and the free packet of French fancies that's likely to be bundled with every PS4 console - there's one that remains unsung. PlayStation C.A.M.P. - that's Creator Audition Mash-up Project, by the way - is a little department within Japan Studio that's responsible for some of Sony's oddest games.

Good preview, I especially like their write-up regarding C.A.M.P.

People need to support both these super creative games.

When they first showed this at Gamescon last year, I was instantly in love. This for me is the game I'm most looking forward to, current gen anyway.

Still looks like a special little title and I'm genuinely excited for release. Also, great to see Japan coming to the forefront again with immersion AND fun. Hopefully now moving forward we can see some more magic from devs all around the far east because when they are in form, they are incredible.

Proud to be PS gamer for 18 years.

Loved it the moment Sony Japan first showed this and Puppeteer awhile back. Will heavily support both.
