Heavily inspired by the “silliness of the 90’s anime shows”, AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected takes players on a first person adventure that fuses rogue-lite elements with a little bit of action and lots of negotiation into an RPG blend. The main objective is to progress through multiple levels while recruiting strange allies along the way – which apparently include ‘idiotic workmen’. Check out the trailer below for a sample of general gameplay footage and a pretty stunning animated introduction featuring Japanese audio:
The game, which is being developed by the two person team of Aurelien Regard (The Next Penelope) and Jim Gennisson (Rayman franchise level designer), will be playable for the first time at PAX East 2017. AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected is expected to release during 2017 for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. You can add the game to your wishlist on Steam today. Those interested in playtesting the game should keep an eye out for future announcements.
