Hi everyone! Dom here again, Creative Director of Pixelopus. Now that some time has passed since the release of Concrete Genie, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on the successful launch, amazing reviews, great fan support — and also to let you know about a little surprise we have in store for you all that will drop today!

When we were making Concrete Genie, we knew that there may have been risk involved in making something with such a personal message, and with uniquely creative gameplay at its heart. It was such an overwhelming surprise to read all the great reviews and see such a wonderful heartfelt response from the PlayStation community. All of us here at Pixelopus are incredibly touched by the support, and particularly those who have reached out to say how much the themes in the game have moved them, or better still, helped them in some way. This was one of our greatest hopes when making the game.

We have also been thrilled to hear from families and gamers of all ages who have been enjoying Concrete Genie together. We designed the game and its story to appeal to all ages but, in particular, we hoped that families could benefit from the universal themes and creative gameplay. This has been so rewarding to watch! We hope that many more families over the holiday period (and beyond) continue to enjoy everything that Concrete Genie has to offer. Please continue to help us spread the word about this game, and what it is about. It has made such a difference so far and we are really grateful for the help!

Finally, and perhaps most excitingly, we have a surprise gift for everyone who owns a copy of Concrete Genie! We have built a special Holiday Brush Design Pack, which everyone who owns the game will get for free*! It’s the perfect way for us to say thank you for the support, and to help everyone get into the festive spirit.

When you download the patch which is released today, you will be greeted with a new message asking if you would like to activate the holiday pack. Once you say yes, you can load up your existing saves, or start a new game, and find that many of the brushes have been given a holiday makeover! We had so much fun making this special set of brushes and can’t wait to see the holiday scenes you paint with them. You can also turn them on/off in the front end menu at any time.

We hope you enjoy this holiday gift from us to you, and please keep on sharing all your wonderful masterpieces on Twitter and Instagram!

*Requires patch 1.06. Patch requires internet connection and an account for PlayStation Network. Holiday Day Brush designs may be terminated at any time.

      Go for it! It’s actually really cool loading up an old save and seeing all the artwork you painted transformed with a festive twist.

  • Don’t skip the VR mode if you have a PSVR. It’s seriously one of the best VR experiences I’ve had.

      Man, I missed out on the Black Friday bundle but I’m hoping it’ll be my Christmas gift.

      Thank you so much for sharing that! The whole team loves hearing the great feedback. We really did strive to make something that felt fresh, and with an innovative gameplay mechanic at it’s core.
