New Trailer for Away: Journey to the Unexpected

We first tried out Away: Journey to the Unexpected at a PAX weekend in early 2017, and have given it subsequent “Impression” posts as we’ve tried it out again each time Aurelien Regard & publisher Playdius have brought it along. It’s seen many changes since that first impression, each time improving in visuals and gameplay—and now that release is imminent in Q1 2019, there’s a new gameplay trailer!

This title has been described as a “feel-good first-person adventure game” that blends rogue-lite elements with action and storytelling. Your character is a little more focused on making friends than bashing up enemies, and you get to recruit many of the interesting characters you meet throughout your journey.

The art style is anime-esque, and the soundtrack follows the same concept. Take a look at the new trailer, the game looks much smoother and a little faster-paced than earlier builds. Although a firm release date hasn’t yet been given, it looks and sounds as though this title is almost ready to go.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
