Over the last year, Insomniac Games has secretly been working on their “passion project”, now revealed to be Song of the Deep.

Happy Thanksgiving (Turkey Day?)! For hundreds of years, families and friends have gathered on this traditional celebratory day to share in the blessings of life, happiness and fortune, as they give thanks for what they’re grateful for the most. It’s a holiday observed by several nations and like other traditional holidays, brings everyone together for a special moment of positive energy. It’s easily comparable to the gaming community, if you’ll excuse me while I don my obligatory gamer hat, where we all come together to celebrate what we enjoy and share gratitude for regularly. The gaming community is a diverse, expansive collective that continues to grow [...]
