I don’t know how one would ‘hip’ but I’ve made it into a verb and there’s nothing that can be done about that now. Sideway New York is a platforming game with an urban aesthetic, by which I don’t just mean that it’s set in a city, I mean that it contains hip hop music and graffiti. The characters are two dimensional but the world is not, as seen in the trailer here. I don’t know how well it works because I haven’t played it yet, but you can! There is a demo available on Steam and if you enjoy that, the full version will only set you back £5.94.
Sideway was a PSN exclusive until quite recently, although sadly that doesn’t mean we’ll be getting Journey and the Pixeljunk games anytime soon.
Oh look, someone left a music video down here, perhaps because it contained animated artworks and music that seemed to fit the mood of the game. Let’s watch it immediately!
