Embark on an original journey from the comfort of your own TV
Developer Another Indie has announced that their sci-fi action adventure title Original Journey will be making its console debut early next year.
Original Journey sends players to the dangerous Planet Shadow, where they will embark on a quest to find the Origin Stone — a fabled artifact of unlimited power — so that they can save their home planet. Gameplay includes a mixture of shooting, platforming, tower-defense, racing, and puzzle-solving, and it will be up to players to use their wit and skill to survive in this procedurally generated world.
Players will take assume the roll of The Rookie during this adventure, and will be given a customizable mech to control. Players will be able to upgrade the mech armor with various buffs, affecting speed, life recovery, fall damage, and more. Over a dozen upgradable weapons will be available too, each suited for different playstyles and enemies.
“Original Journey demands skill to vanquish the creatures of Planet Shadow and offers an arsenal of weapons so players can find their favorites, but the story asks some hard questions,” says Another Indie Director of Developer Relations Iain Garner. “Original Journey will take players on an action-packed journey as they explore the limits of their own mortality.”
Original Journey is slated for release on PC via Steam on August 16, and will be coming to the Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime in Q1 2018. Are you looking forward to embarking on this journey yourself? Let us know in the comments below!
