Brandon’s Games of the Year (2012) #7: The Unfinished Swan
This list is presented in no particular order.
An indie title created exclusively for the PS3 in a matter of months, The Unfinished Swan was designed to be unlike any other game available. It succeeded. A first-person title with no first-person tropes, you start in a white-canvas world and throw down ink to make out the surroundings of your adventure, and the game only becomes more creative from there. It is truly a ‘storybook’ video game, and even contains a nice reference to Journey.
