Sony has picked up indie game Pavilion, a "fourth-person exploratory experience", for release exclusively on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the spring of 2014.

Sony announced it had signed Pavilion, the work of two-person studio Visiontrick Media, on the quiet during Sony Computer Entertainment Japan's press conference yesterday.

Pavilion is about "guidance, influence and subliminal control", according to its developers. "Manipulate the surrounding environment, influence his sense and guide the main character on the path towards truth."

It's set in a "surreal dream-like place where reality clash with fantasy". The screenshots, below, reveal hand-painted 2D graphics. There's "dreamy" ambient music, too, composed by live space music maestro Tony Gerber. Have a listen to the video, below, for a teaser.

Pavilion will be fully unveiled at the Tokyo Game Show next week.
