Volume for PS4 and Vita has you playing with sound

Volume is the second full game from Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell and it'll debut exclusively on PS4 and Vita.


Sony's outreach to indie developers continues, as they confirmed that they're bringing Thomas Was Alone creator Mike Bithell's stealth title, Volume, to PS4 and Vita first.

Shortly after the announcement, Bithell pondered on the Playstation.Blog about his life 12 years ago, before going into more detail about what Volume will entail.

"As the name suggests, a large part of the game is about sound, visual ripples in levels show you the range of the noise you're making, and you can deliberately use these sounds to mess with your foes," he said. "And it's remixable. You can change the game's levels, you can fiddle and craft the game to be exactly how you want it. You can make expansions for your friends, or translations to any language you want. Control lies with you."

Bithell remains mum on Volume's plot, noting that it'll be revealed at a "top secret event" in October. He hopes to have Volume completed in 2014.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
