“After our first pitch to Sony they told us that we weren’t asking them for enough money… they said they liked what we pitched, but it wasn’t going to work with the amount of money we asked for. That’s not usually how it works, you usually get asked to do even more than you’ve pitched and then get hammered down on the price [laughs].”

Seriously, hats off to Sony for this, and for allowing Hegarty to retain the ip's ownership.

Haha! That is something Shahid would say. Whoever saw his Indie Revolution press conference can see this is a genuine guy who wants Indie games to succeed on Playstation.

So big ups to Shahid & the rest of the Indie games guys on Playstation.

Gris is a good game. Absolutely amazing art style, one of the best looking games I've ever played, with a great soundtrack, but a clever puzzle platformer too.
