Jasper Byrne's low-fi survival horror game Lone Survivor is making its way from PC and Mac to PS3 and Vita.

The port is being handled by London's Curve Studios, who worked on Fluidity, Hydroventure and Explodemon. There will be English, French and German language options available.

Despite developing Lone Survivor for PC and Mac and contributing music to the PC-exclusive Hotline Miami, Byrne considers himself a console gamer first and foremost. "Anyone who follows my twitter will know that I don't tend to play games on PC, I really am a couch gamer, most happy on my PS3," he said. "Lone Survivor was designed as a console game (in my head, anyway.) In fact, all the games I work on I really imagine being on console."

Our Lewis Denby called Lone Survivor "an intricate and unique game that takes the best of old-style survival horror and warps it into something all of its own," in his 8/10 review. He added, "It's brave, uncompromising, and a little bit knowing - and, crucially, it's got more than enough substance to back up its style."

Unfortunately, Byrne has put his current project described as "Zelda x Demon's Souls" on hiatus.

"I have decided to abandon the project," he wrote on his blog. "It's been a very tough decision to make, quite heartbreaking really, but it IS the right thing to do. It was too big for a single person to make."

"I reached a point where it was getting very frustrating: the game demanded a lot of animation, very detailed level design, and a huge amount of gameplay code, all of which were taking so long that it felt excruciating."

While Byrne decided the project was too ambitious for one man to make, he maintained that he'd still like to finish it someday with a full team. "It's still a game I'd love to play, and should I ever have a team to work with in future, it's definitely an idea I'd like to come back to."

Dubbed 'New Game+' Byrne's upcoming game has been put on the back burner indefinitely.
