Lone Survivor announced for PS3 and Vita
See, what did we tell you? Another couple of weeks go by, and yet another acclaimed PC title is announced for PS3 and PS Vita. This time around it’s the 2D survival-horror game, Lone Survivor.
Created by British game designer Jasper Byrne (otherwise known as superflat), Lone Survivor was originally released on PC in March 2012. With its retro 2D art style, incredible music and thought-provoking story, it was greeted by a terrific reception from critics and gamers alike. Speaking on the PS blog, this is how Jasper describes the game:
“For those who missed it the first time round, this is a psychological-survival-adventure, where the choice of how to survive is up to you. It’s the last record of our nameless, masked protagonist, holed-up in a city full of diseased monsters, starving and exhausted.
When we join him on his quest, he has already begun to question whether what he sees is even real. You can choose to sneak through the game without firing a single shot, or to kill everything in your path. You can eat and sleep well, or resort to drugs to keep going. You can search for survivors, or try to escape the city alone. You can look after your mental health, or descend into madness…”
Lone Survivor took over four years to create, so it’s awesome that soon we’ll be able to experience it on PS3 and Vita. Not only that, but it’ll also support cross-play and cross-buy, and include tons of new content that will initially be exclusive to PlayStation platforms.
