Entwined is a rhythm game developed by PixelOpus, a studio which consists of former game design students and is part of SCE Worldwide Studios, for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. The game was announced at Sony's E3 media briefing on June 9, 2014 and was released worldwide on the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 4 on the same day. The PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita version were released approximately a month later, and since Entwined is a cross-buy title, these two versions are available at no extra cost for anyone who has purchased the PlayStation 4 version.[1][2]

Plot[edit]

The story is about two souls, a bird and a fish, that are in love but can’t be together. Once united, the two souls will transform into a magnificent soaring dragon.[1][2]

Gameplay[edit]

The player is tasked with guiding the two souls simultaneously, one with each analog stick, to bring them together over the course of many lifetimes.[1] The left analog stick controls the fish, while the right analog stick controls the bird.[2][5]
