Jazz-infused platformer Stick it to The Man is sticking it to the PS4


Papercraft platformer Stick it to The Man is also on its way to PS4, complete with 1080p visuals and other system-specific tune-ups. Penned by Adventure Time comic author Ryan North, Zoink's jazzy, jaundiced adventure hits European PS4s first on April 30, before journeying across to the US on May 6. The previously announced Wii U version is still stuck to a "late Spring" window, but publisher Ripstone says it'll announce a release date shortly.

Stick it to The Man stars Ray, who isn't Sideshow Bob's long-lost cousin, in a supernatural adventure that centers around the hero's psychic abilities. Like most psychics, Ray gets his mind-reading powers from a great big pink spaghetti arm that sticks out of his head and yanks thoughts out of other people's brains.

Ripstone says the game's PS4 version "has been enhanced to take advantage of next-gen features," and that includes the higher-def resolution and hearing the thoughts of the game characters through the DualShock 4 speakers. If you'd rather not wait for all that, you'll be pleased to know Stick it to The Man is already out on PS3, Vita, and Steam.

PlayStation®4 version confirmed for crazy mind-reading game!

9th April 2014: Swedish creative geniuses Zoink Games and UK indie publisher Ripstone have read the minds of the fans and found out you wanted a next-gen version of the critically acclaimed crazy mind-reading puzzle game Stick It To The Man – so they're bringing it to you on PlayStation®4 soon!

Stick It To The Man will have you exploring a world made of paper and stickers; helping Ray who has just woken up from a bizarre accident with a giant pink spaghetti arm sticking out of his brain. This gives him extraordinary mind-reading powers, as well as being able to transform the world around him by tearing it, folding it and using the crazy stickers he finds to solve mind-boggling puzzles. Sadly, Ray doesn't have much time to get to grips with his new psychic abilities as he's on the run from 'The Man' for a crime he didn't commit! Can you change the world with stickers and help Ray out of this sticky situation?

So if you own a PS4 and have always wanted to be able to read people's minds and find out what they're really thinking – you'll soon be able to. The game has been enhanced to take advantage of next-gen features, Ray's madcap adventures are now displayed in pin-sharp 1080p and the DualShock®4 controller speakers are used to tap into characters thoughts in the game, further separating the mindreading world from Ray's world.

Stick It To The Man will be available to download from the PlayStation Store on PlayStation®4 from 30th April in Europe, and 6th May in the US. The game is also coming to Wii U in late Spring 2014, release date to be announced shortly.
