World Gone Sour on PSN Today, Starring The Sour Patch Kids

Adam Boyes's Avatar + Posted by Adam Boyes on Apr 10, 2012 // Vice President, Developer and Publisher Relations, SCEA

Dear PlayStation.Blog fans, friends, countrymen: lend me your taste buds.

If you could ask the candy that you eat what its lifelong goals are, what would it say? Would it tell you that it wants to be an astronaut? Drive in the Indy 500? Run a marathon? Probably not. If you asked a Sour Patch Kid that question, the answer would be this: To make it to the human belly, their sweet rapture.


And that, my friends, is the premise of our new video game World Gone Sour starring the sweet-then-sour candy, Sour Patch Kids. We took that premise, added Creed Bratton from NBC’s “The Office” as our “sometimes sweet and sometimes sour” narrator, got Wu-Tang’s own Method Man to create a custom song included in the game, and set out to make a ridiculously fun game for you to enjoy.

World Gone Sour is a puzzle platformer made by the incredibly talented team at Playbrains (makers of the PSN-exclusive game Sideway where you play as an inch-high candy in a twisted miniature world where you play through sticky movie theatre floors, across sizzling hamburger grills, through a psychotic doll house, and over razor sharp buzz saws. You use the sour patch kid followers that you pick up along the way to absorb to get stronger, or throw them around like ammunition to help you take down ridiculous foes. You’ll face dust bunnies, rogue nacho cheese beasts, gum crawlers, and matchbook spiders as you wall jump, grapple, and swing your way through the multiple environments and settings.

If all of that wasn’t enough, you can also play with your friend in our local co-op mode at any time with drop-in and drop-out functionality.

It’s $4.99 on PSN and launches later today. Pick it up, chew it up, watch some Method Man, listen to the smooth vocal shenanigans of Creed Bratton, and let us know what you think in the comments below!

Hey Guys – Adam Boyes here from the Production Team! Thanks so much for your comments.

@JonJonXD – Glad you were a fan of Sideway! The team is really talented and passionate, and we all had a ton of fun making this game!

@jazzyrider – Currently no plans for a Vita version, but if this one sells like sour patch flavored hotcakes, then we will definitely explore more platforms. I do love my Vita!

@PainofSarrow – The full playthrough really depends on the skills of the player. There are 13 pretty large levels, and each one can take 15-30 minutes depending on your level of skill. In order to find all of the collectables and get all of the trophies, you’ll have to find all of the nooks and crannies which should take 5-6 hours.

Anything else guys, just let me know. I’ll be monitoring the blog over the next few days to answer the questions that I can!

Adam, I’ve been searching PSN for Sideways for months (forgot the name but remembered the awesome trailer). I’ll definitely be getting both these games today. Also, what’s it like working with a legend like Tim Lewison? :)

I don’t know who your target audience is, but my 2 sons and I were not the least bit impressed by the trailer, and we love multiplayer platformers. Wasn’t expecting much for $5 but after watching it I’m thinking “free at Burger King” quality. Sideways was really good though so I’ll keep an eye open for a demo.

I bought Sideway with my PS+ discount (iirc) and it took me a while to get around to playing it, but once I did, I found it extremely enjoyable. It controlled much better than I thought it would, the sound and music was great, and it had an all-around feeling of polish to it that a lot of other PSN games don’t always seem to have. For $5, I’m totally blind-buying this.
Keep up the good work, Playbrains!
