PlayStation 2013 – New IP Knack announced for PS4


The first game announced for the PlayStation 4 during Sony’s big event earlier today was Knack, an exclusive new IP from developer SCE Japan Studio. The third-person action game is being directed by Mark Cerny, who also serves as the PS4’s lead design architect.

Knack‘s protagonist is the title character, a small robot who can morph into much larger forms by collecting objects in the game’s world. The reveal trailer showed off vibrant visuals and a few brief moments of combat.

Also revealed was the foundation for the game’s story, which deals with a struggle between humans and seemingly evil goblins. Knack is created by human scientists in an effort to create an advantage for the impending battles.

Cerny’s involvement with the project means the inclusion of special PS4 features, including the stream/share technology and remote play. The latter was highlighted during the demonstration when Cerny started playing Knack on the PlayStation Vita.

My first experience playing a video game blew me away. The fact that Super Metroid was that game certainly helped. So I like to think Samus put me on the path to video games. Well, I guess my parents buying the SNES had a little something to do with it. Ever since then my passion for video games has grown. When I found that I could put words together into a coherent sentence, videogame journalism was a natural interest. Now I spend a large majority of my time either playing video games or writing about them, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
