The Unfinished Swan now has a release date. The PlayStation 3-exclusive from independent studio Giant Sparrow will release through the PlayStation Network on October 23, the company announced today through the PlayStation Blog.

It's finished and headed to PSN October 23.

PlayStation Plus subscribers can get the first-person painting game a week early on October 16. No price for the game was announced.

The Unfinished Swan follows an orphan boy, Monroe, whose mother left him a painting of an unfinished swan. The swan emerges from the painting one evening, and Monroe follows it in an attempt to catch it. And on his journey, Monroe ultimately learns a lesson about himself.

Players enter a blank white world, and must throw splashes of black paint to reveal their surroundings. For more on The Unfinished Swan, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

With a name like that many are not going to give the game a look.  LOL

This actually looks like a nice break from traditional plot-involved games.  I'mma buy it.

- Great title: check

- Beautiful art design: check

- Soothing music: check

- A seemingly perfect calming experience after playing Dark Souls DLC, which is coming out on the same day: check!

And the artsy indy genre takes off with another fleeting title that everyone will praise just to be accepted

I love these types of games. Their unique art style makes them stand out. And this First person painting gameplay hasn't been done before. Excited to see how they use it in the full game.

I had a chance to speak to one of the guys who worked on this game. When he described it to me I didn't think it was very impressive, but he sent me a gameplay video and I was sold instantly.

 @Bangerman15 Play Journey now. Anyone who plays it and doesn't automatically make it their Game of the Year doesn't know what they're doing.
