Ojiro Fumoto, once an Opera singer now a game developer, has teamed up with publisher Devolver Digital to release the award winning game Downwell on the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation Vita.
Downwell is all about a young boy who ventures down a well to fin untold treasures, equipped with only his Gunboots for protection. The further down you go the nastier the creatures. Collect the red gems sporadically scattered around the chasm. Step into the well’s shops to purchase items or level up between levels. No two trips down the well are ever the same.
“Devolver Digital spent over $5 million to developer the technology to play Downwell vertically on your TV,” noted Devolver Digital CFO Fork Parker. “Seemed reasonable at the time.”
Downwell is also available for iOS, Android, and PC. But also, PlayStation – that’s the point of this whole thing.
Downwell is available now on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, iOS, Android, and PC for the low price of $4.99.
