Hi everyone! Dom here again, Pixelopus Creative Director Now that the time has passed since the release of Concrete Genie, we wanted to take a moment to look at the successful launch, amazing reviews, great fan support – and also to let you know about the little surprises we have in store for all of you today!
When we made Concrete Genie, we knew it might have put you at risk of doing something with such a personal message, and with a different creative gameplay in its heart. It was a great surprise when I read all the great reviews and saw such positive feedback from the PlayStation community. All of us here at Pixelopus have been amazingly touched by this support, and especially those who have reached out to say how much the themes in the game have influenced, or at best, helped in some way. This is one of our great hopes when making a game.
We are also excited to hear from families and sportsmen of all ages who have enjoyed Concrete Genie together. We planned the game and its story to be appealing to all ages but, in particular, we hoped that families could benefit from global themes and creative gameplay. This has been a great reward to watch! We hope that many more families over the holidays (otherwise) continue to enjoy everything Concrete Genie has to offer. Please continue to help us spread the word about this game, and what it is about. It has made such a difference so far and we are so grateful for the help!
Finally, and perhaps most fun, we have the surprise gift for everyone who owns the Concrete Genie copy! We created our specialty Holiday Design Package, everyone who owns the game will get it for free! It's a perfect way for us to say thank you for the support, and to help everyone have a festive atmosphere.
If you download the patch being released today, you'll be notified of a new message asking if you would like to activate the holiday package. Once you say yes, you can upload your existing save, or start a new game, and find that many brushes have been given a holiday makeover! It was so fun to make this special set of brushes and we can't wait to see the holiday scenes you paint. You can turn them on / off in the front menu at any time.
We hope you enjoy this holiday gift from us to you, and please continue to share your amazing art on Twitter and Instagram!
* Require patch 1.06. Patch requires an Internet connection and a PlayStation Network account. Holiday Day Brush projects can be completed at any time.
