Entwined's PlayStation 3, PS Vita version coming 'in the near future'

Entwined, Pixelopus' colorful, abstract action arcade game, will be available for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita "in the very near future," creative director Dominic Robilliard announced via the PlayStation Blog.

In Entwined, players control two souls in love who can't be together, represented by a bird and a fish. When combined, the two become a powerful dragon.

"The story was inspired by our first concept art ...  [which] reminded us of an ancient Chinese book Zhuangzi," Robilliard wrote. "There was a story about Peng, a giant bird that transforms from a Kun which is a giant fish. In conjunction with several other concepts, like reincarnation and Chinese folklore of carps turning into a dragon when leaping through the dragon gate, we came upon the story of Entwined: a fish and bird representing two souls who are in love but cannot be together. One lives in the ocean, one soars in the sky, always separated by fate, reality and distance."

Pixelopus consists of student developers from a Carnegie Mellon University course. The game was announced for PlayStation 4 at Sony's E3 2014 press conference; it launched on PSN the same day.
