PS5 architect Mark Cerny adds another rare platinum trophy to his collection



PS5 boffin Mark Cerny is not only the console’s talented lead architect, he’s also quite skilled at video games. The man has been sharing his exploits on social media, tweeting about each of his platinum trophy wins as they happen. Cerny’s trophy cabinet is impressive, with plots for the likes of Cuphead, Returnal, Deathloop, Demon’s Souls, and more. He can be very proud of his latest effort, though: the addictive rogue-like deck builder, Kill the Spire:

Although the game has a simple art style and easy-to-learn mechanics, it’s surprisingly flexible and deep, and the trophy list shows the wide range of approaches you can take. This author has put dozens of hours into the game and only a third are digital trinkets. Cerny has cleared all 44, including the super rare platinum; Only 0.3 percent of the players have it.

If you’re interested in checking out the game, Slay the Spire was part of the PS Plus Essential lineup back in April, so it’s possible the game is waiting in your library. We would definitely encourage you to give it a try.
