Emeric Thoa from developers The Game Bakers has taken to the PlayStation blog this week to reveal more details about the upcoming Furi game that will be launching on PlayStation 4 sometime next year.
As well as revealing details about the new Furi game, Thoa has also published an announcement trailer providing a glimpse of what you can expect from the game that is still currently under development.
Thoa explains little more :
Hello, fighting fans. The story of Furi starts ten years ago, on a plane, as I was headed to a game show. At the time I was a junior designer for a big video game company. Indie development hadn’t really taken off yet, so the idea of making my own console game was nothing more than a pipe dream.
But the person travelling with me asked me what I would do if I could make my dream game, and I told him about this game that would be one long boss fight. A boss fight against an opponent similar to you, not a gigantic creature or a demon. A boss fight that felt like a duel — a tense, exhausting, and utterly rewarding duel.
Furi is the manifestation of this idea that’s stuck with me for the past ten years, as I grew as a designer and set up my own indie studio, The Game Bakers. Furi is a game where you fight for a reason. It’s a game that teases you before the fight, while you walk toward your fate, the same way you would be pumped up and stressed before a boxing match. As you do, you’ll start to piece together about why you’re here and what you’re fighting for.
No specific release date as to when the game will be available next year has been announced as yet, but as soon as more details become available we will keep you updated as always. Check out the announcement trailer below to learn more.
