At this year’s Game Awards 505 Games and developer Typhoon Studios announced their new upbeat first person adventure game, Journey to the Savage Planet. This adventure to an unusual and colourful world will arrive in 2019 on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. The announcement has been accompanied by a new trailer which can be viewed below.
Journey to the Savage Planet takes players on an interstellar adventure into a quiet corner of the universe as an employee of the “4th Best Interstellar Exploration Company”, Kindred Aerospace. As a loyal employee it is the player’s mission to explore this new world and catalogue all the alien flora and fauna and decide whether it is a planet fit for human habitation. Despite this grand mission, intrepid explorers will have little equipment and absolutely no plan on how to successfully complete it.
“The core tenets of Typhoon are strong flavours, lots of intertwined systems, a penchant for bad jokes and a deep and abiding love of collaborative play,” said Alex Hutchinson, creative director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “Journey to the Savage Planet will encompass all of those things and more.”
“This is a passion project for our team, many of whom came from larger companies including Ubisoft, Eidos and WB Games to embark on this indie game adventure with us,” said Reid Schneider, executive producer and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “It was a dream come true to reveal our project at The Game Awards,” added Yassine Riahi, technical director and co-founder, Typhoon Studios. “We were thrilled to see the positive reaction from viewers and we’re eager to get Journey to the Savage Planet in your hands next year!”
