Concrete Genie delayed to fall, story trailer

Paint your hometown back to life.

Concrete Genie

Publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Pixel Opus have delayed Concrete Genie from its previously planned spring release to fall, as well as announced the inclusion of two PlayStation VR modes.

Here is a tease regarding the PlayStation VR modes, via the PlayStation Blog:

All editions of Concrete Genie will include two PlayStation VR modes in addition to the core PS4 game! When we began making Concrete Genie, it always felt like the Living Paint mechanics would be a great fit for an immersive, first-person painting experience. When we showed the game to some old friends, Jeff Brown and Dave Smith—they came up with an incredible idea for how to take it to a whole new level in PlayStation VR. It was such a compelling pitch that we decided to build a team around them, right next to us in PlayStation HQ so they could create it alongside us. We are absolutely thrilled with how this part of the game has come together and you’ll be hearing more about these two modes soon.

Here is an overview of the game, via

Concrete Genie is a game about a bullied teenager named Ash, who escapes his troubles by painting spectacular living landscapes and mischievous creatures throughout his abandoned hometown of Denska. As he masters this magical paint, he discovers it can purify Denska’s polluted walls. Can Ash overcome the bullies and paint his hometown back to life?
