PlayStation have announced today that Budget Cuts from NEAT Corporation will now release on September 25th.
That means, unfortunately, it is no longer a part of our Summer Spectacular lineup and will miss its previous release date of July 10th.
This will be a simultaneous digital and physical release and will see new content added to the game in the form of the Panopticon level, designed with the PSVR in mind.
Here’s what the PlayStation Blog has to say about the announcement.
With Panopticon we wanted to put the players journey and the importance of choice at the core of the levels design. We do this by providing them with a clear and central goal that is easy to locate, but hard to access(that green room in the middle of the level). We wanted to encourage the player to pave their own path forward, either through brute force and action or through stealth and sneaking their way around in order to reach the center of the level. Honing in on the idea that the player is the one who chooses between fast-paced stabbing or tactical sneaking through their traversal of the level was key to the theme of this level.
The blog continues.
In order to make sure that Panopticon had a goal that was easy to see (but was also often just out of reach) we decided on a radial layout of the level. This design approach lent itself very nicely to the circular shape you see on the level. This has the added effect of both challenging the player’s navigational skills – you might just find yourself going “in circles” if you don’t pay attention. This layout also helps make the center of the level visible from several points, which supports the player in making informed decisions on how to traverse towards their goal.
