Snake Pass (PS4, XOne, PC) "Trust in Sssssumo Digital"

10 posts in this topic

So every now and again I get a tweet notification from Sumo Digital telling me how great Snake Pass is... so I figured I'd look into it... and... it doesn't look too bad. In fact it looks like it could be a lot of fun.

Essentially, you play as a great big snake and you have to guide it through a stage, solving puzzles and collecting snake eggs. Other small bit of trivia, it started off life as an internal Game Jam product.

There's not been much press attention on the title, but what little there has been is very positive.

I think this looks like it could be a lot of fun and a big sleeper hit. Anyone else?

Looks like it could be fun, so long as the controls make sense and feel good. Reminds me a bit of Grow Home (or, less charitably, QWOP) where you have more fine control over your character's body compared to traditional controls where you just activate specific moves, with the added twist of not being humanoid so you have even less of a reference for how to do things.

Looks creative and colorful! I've been wanting to see Sumo attempt a... platformer...? Is this a platformer?

Well there's a great big snake slithering on a platform what more do you need? More platforms!?

Also, and it was alright.

A big hello once again to the PlayStation community. James here from Sumo Digital, ready to bring you some fang-tastic news about our upcoming platformer, Snake Pass. It gives me great pleasure to announce that Snake Pass will be slithering on to PS4 on 29th March!

Jungle Beats

That’s right, our serpentine adventure, accompanied by a meticulously crafted original soundtrack composed by none other than audio legend David Wise, is set to launch on PS4 at the end of next month. This will be one of the first times players have been challenged to truly ‘Think Like A Snake’ as they take on the role of hero, Noodle. Accompanied by his best friend Doodle the Hummingbird, players will be setting out on a puzzle filled adventure where it’s up to them to solve the mystery that has beset the ancient land of Haven Tor.

Snake Pass

Sssupercharged!

But wait, there’s more! I’m also excited to announce that Snake Pass will feature PS4 Pro enhancements on release day. Ever since we showcased Snake Pass at the PlayStation Experience back in December and had the chance to see PS4 Pro in action ourselves, it quite quickly became a no-brainer for us. As we know many agree, Snake Pass is already a visual pleasure to witness, but adding PS4 Pro support has given us a chance to add another level of depth to the vivid and lush world of Haven Tor.

For those of you on a 4K monitor, your PS4 Pro will let you take full advantage of all the sights and sounds that Snake Pass has to offer. Don’t worry, we didn’t forget about you guys on standard high definition displays. Viewed on a 1080p monitor, Snake Pass will feature a whole host of performance and improvements that make the game stand out so much more. Those of you that have invested in HDR televisions will instantly notice the world *pop* just that little bit more, it’s honestly a sight you need to witness yourselves.

P.S We love you xoxo

Since our unveiling last year, we never in our wildest dreams expected to receive as much support from the community as we have done to date. For those that came to hang out and meet the team at PlayStation Experience – THANK YOU. We hope you love the game as much as we have loved making it.

Snake Pass will be available for PlayStation 4 on 29th March in Europe. We’ll be providing pricing details very, very soon!
