Indie developer Aurelien Regard, creator of The Next Penelope, announced his new project ‘Away’ today. ‘Away’ is a vibrant, first person adventure game that meshes action and negotiation in a rogue-lite environment. ‘Away’ is currently scheduled to be published later this year by Plug In Digital’s new label, Playdius.
The game is currently scheduled to release on PC, Xbox One, PS4 and Switch. Alongside the announcement of ‘Away’, we also received some awesome screenshots and a teaser trailer which can be seen below.
‘Away’ developer Aurelien Regard had this to say about his upcoming title:
“I’ve been a long-time fan of first person games, but most of the time, you’re either facing realistic war or very abstract universes. I’ve been waiting for a long time to play this type of games in a different, colorful setting, filled with joyful or wacky characters you can interact with. Also, sometimes I really miss the silliness of the 90’s anime shows we grew up with in Europe. This is how this project started, and I hope others will enjoy this experience as much as we enjoy creating it!”
The teaser trailer that was released today shows off the vibrant world and environments you’ll be exploring, stylized art style, and a few of the characters you’ll run into in ‘Away’.
Additionally, ‘Away’ will be on the show floor at PAX East 2017 for fans to get their hands on it ahead of its official release.
