The Last Guardian (previously known as Project Trico) is another work from Team Ico, the developers of Ico and Shadow of the Collossus. This time the game is developed exclusively for PlayStation 4.

The Last Guardian lets you play as a young boy, it is, however, a giant, eagle-like creature accompanying the boy, on which the events focus. While the little protagonist, controlled by the player, is able to climb platforms, squeeze through holes, and make short jumps, there are numerous cases when he has to rely on his companion – either when it comes to moving an obstacle or reaching seemingly inaccessible places. Interestingly, the creature is with no doubt intelligent, has its own, unique character traits, likes and dislikes that have to be taken into account. We can look after the creature by feed it, or remove arrows from its body, when it gets wounded. Furthermore, the creature may react differently, depending on where we touch it.

The Last Guardian stands out with its unique level design, whereas the environment itself is generated by a modern in-house game engine. Much effort was put into carefully implementing movements and appearance of the protagonist’s flying friend (e.g. feathers on its wings move in the wind), as well as preparing realistic physics simulation.
