The Unfinished Swan is a game about exploring the unknown.

The player is a young boy chasing after a swan who has wandered off into a surreal, unfinished kingdom. The game begins in a completely white space where players can throw paint to splatter their surroundings and reveal the world around them.


Video Review by Tara Long

“The Unfinished Swan is a dream, a dream journey that you can recollect when you wake up and want to share with all your friends because of how unlike reality was. The game constantly changes as you play through it, lending a feeling that anything can happen. It doesn’t pigeonhole itself into any particular style or type, it simply does what it wants as you tag along for the ride. The word unique gets thrown around a lot in gaming, but The Unfinished Swan is truly unique, an experience not to be missed. It will show you that games don’t need combat to be engaging, and they don’t need color to strike a chord with your imagination. Simply put, this is one of the best games of the year, and my very favorite gaming experience of 2012.”
