If you’re looking for a space exploration game to play after The Outer Worlds, perhaps Jett: The Far Shore could be the one to fill the void, as the trailer for the upcoming indie title looks rather promising.
Developed by the creators of indie hit Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP in conjunction with Pine Scented Software, Jett: The Far Shore is set to arrive on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and the Epic Games Store at the end of this year. The trailer doesn’t give a huge amount away, but you can see the travellers taking off from a slightly Soviet-looking world and journeying into space for several years until they arrive at a very barren planet. The press release describes it as “a new cinematic action adventure game that invites you on an interstellar trip to carve out a future for a people haunted by oblivion” (via Gamasutra). Why of course.
Pine Scented technical lead Patrick McAllister also explained that “underneath Jett’s cinematic narrative and the distinct Superbrothers tone there’s a broad systemic open world to roam around in, and pockets of threat or mystery to problem solve”.
