Adventure Awaits in a Mysterious Country
January is aiming to be a busy month for Devolver Digital. Not only are they bringing us Gods Will Fall, but they just announced another great title is coming out that month. That game is none other than Olija, the stylish, dark and brutal action game with a haunting story. It’s being developed by the folks at Skeleton Crew for PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. I’m already quite captivated by it, and hope it will live up to my hype.
In Olija you’ll play Faraday as he sets out in a strange country. Faraday is captivated by a mysterious woman, and the game itself is about exploring the unknown. Honestly, words don’t quite do it justice, but here’s the PR explaining the game:
“Olija is a game about Faraday’s quest, a man shipwrecked and trapped in the mysterious country of Terraphage. Armed with a legendary harpoon, he and other castaways try to leave this hostile country to return to their homelands.
Through adventurous exploration, narration and razor sharp combat, the player will discover a strange world and its inhabitants, including Olija, an enigmatic lady that Faraday finds himself bound to over time. Inspired by swashbuckling tales and cinematic adventure games, Olija is a story about facing the unknown in adversity.”
If you’re still not convinced, please make sure to check out the Steam demo and the new Olija trailer below. The visual flair of the game combined with the frenetic combat and dark setting really makes it all come together. Plus, the soundtrack for the trailer is pretty catchy.
