Why Concrete Genie is a game that no one should ignore

Written by Ankit Gaba

Concrete Genie was revealed back in 2017 at Paris Games Week. It was the most nominated game for Gamescom Awards and won an award for the Most Original Game. The Game itself has one of the best art and design ever since most of the elements are hand-drawn. Concrete Genie will also have PlayStation VR Support and, a breath-taking 6-8 hours Story. Whatever you create will eventually come to life. The game’s main theme is on Bullying as our Main Character Ash gets bullied by other children we have to bring back the light to his city and make everyone happy instead of angry. The Game’s art and design seem to take a couple of inspirations from Infamous Second Son. Creative director Dominic Robillard says the game is heavily inspired by Sega’s Jet Set Radio¬†but we don’t know how exactly the game takes inspirations from Sega’s Jet Set Radio.

The Game uses DualShock 4’s Motion Controls to create the landscapes that you will create and bring them to life, However when it comes to painting the creatures their colors and how you paint them will change their personality. The Bullies will try to ruin your artwork as you try to bring back the light to Denska. They will also bully the player so we will have to try to avoid them as much as we can. The player will be able to gain more access to Denska over time, but at the start of the game, the player will only have access to a single neighborhood. The Game will make you feel like an artist as it’s really easy to draw in Concrete Genie.

Anyone can make something in this game that looks interesting. Every single element of the game is hand-painted and is simply beautiful. The Game also has some puzzle elements and the Creatures that you draw can help you on your journey in the puzzles. Red Creatures have a fire ability and The Blue Creatures have a water ability many other abilities are depending on the color of your character. The Game doesn’t judge if you paint great or bad since they don’t want to make the Player feel sad about the creation instead of that this game will cheer you up in many ways while you draw a landscape or a creature. You can paint on any wall the game doesn’t have any limitations about painting. If you make a house that your creatures want they will give you a special ability on the Brush called “Super Paint” with that you can clear the darkness from some parts of the town. As you progress through the game you can unlock different colors to give your characters different ability. In the story, the bullies have ripped off your Coloring book and whenever you find a page of the book you get a new painting technique. Concrete Genie Takes a Unique approach that could make the game a masterpiece.
