Concrete Genie is a new action adventure game exclusively for the PlayStation 4. The game is being developed by PixelOpus and produced by Sony Interactive Entertainment. I simply can’t wait to play this beautiful game starting October 8th.

About Concrete Genie:

The game follows Ash, a bullied teenager. Ash lives in the former fishing town of Denska. Denska is all but abandoned thanks to an oil spill. Now, the town’s water is inky and poisoned and the town is covered in a force called Darkness.

Ash is creative and spends his days working on his sketchbook. After bullies snatch the book and rip out the pages, Ash embarks on a journey to save them. Along the way, he discovers his creativity might just be what saves Denska.

You will follow and control Ash with a 3rd person perspective. You’ll use his magical Living Paint to paint creatures, called Genies, on the town walls. By creating colorful street art, Denska will slowly be restored. You will also find the lost pages of Ash’s sketchbook. Each page will expand the design toolset.


According to developers, each creature you paint will have its own personality and abilities. This is thanks to each one having its own A.I.

The game will launch with both a VR Experience Mode and a VR Free Paint Mode. In VR Experience Mode, you will follow a Genie and help it discover a new, mysterious power. This mode will then unlock VR Free Paint Mode. In VR Free Paint Mode, you’ll move your paintbrush by using PlayStation Move Motion Controllers. How awesome is that!

    Ooh! I thought maybe Concrete Genie would turn out to not be Potato-style! 😀 Doesn’t it look beautiful? I’m really excited to hear more about it or, better yet, learn a release date so I can anticipate its arrival even more. (My anticipation tends to spike a bit once I get an actual release date for something.) I have NO art skills, but this game looks like it might be quite playable even without any. I want to paint the entire town into a garden, ASAP! 🙂

      It’s so beautiful! There was an interview with some of the devs where they said their goal was to make everyone feel like an artist! I think it’s going to be a blast. 😀

        I basically am a real potato in terms of drawing or painting skills, so I would love to feel like an actual artist, lol. I really look forward to making that dingy, grubby old town glow with colourful flowers and trees 🙂
