Derrick the Deathfin Swimming to the PSN This Summer
Written Monday, May 14, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Derrick the Deathfin is a world first. It's the first underwater papercraft game, starring the titular paper shark who embarks upon a destructive rampage after his parents are turned into soup. Derrick can also leap through burning tyres suspended in the air and collect diamonds, as well as eat stuff like a real shark.
Described as "the illegitimate lovechild of Ecco the Dolphin and Sonic the Hedgehog. Possibly with Joe Danger filming in the background during conception," Derrick the Deathfin is set in a world comprised entirely of paper, with arcade action and wanton destruction on the cards. Or rather papers, in this case.
Boasting a vibrant art style from street artist Ronzo, each of the characters and environments are fashioned from actual papercraft models, before being photographed and recreated as 3D models for the game. There'll be 32 levels set across 11 environments and 4 continents, tasking Derrick with keeping his metabolism ticking over by eating.
Derrick the Deathfin is coming to the PlayStation Network this summer. Check out the trailer, papercraft models and screenshots below.
