Energy Hook is a game that, for better or worse, hasn’t been done before. And it’s officially coming to PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4.
The announcement came today by way of a PlayStation Blog post. The title, by Jamie Fristrom (creator of the Spider-Man 2 game), combines the joy of web swinging with the competition of extreme sports.
Like many others before it, the game began as a Kickstarter campaign, ending early June with over $40,000 raised for it. According to Fristrom’s post in the PlayStation Blog, the game has you “swing from rooftop to rooftop, pull off mid-air tricks, run along walls, and rack up points and energy for doing it. Because: it’s the future. And that’s what the extreme sports of the future look like. You have gravity beams and gravity boots and jetpacks and can do awesome stuff.”
