Indie adventure Project Elea started doing the rounds today, and certainly looks the business.
Bulgarian studio Kyodai is reponsible for the Unreal Engine 4 adventure, which tells the story of a woman who regains consciousness in a locked cabin on onboard the Worldtree-class starship Pilgrimage II. The ship AI, Kazumi, has gone offline – an unprecedented event – and the rest of the crew have evacuated, abandoning their colonisation mission to the expolanet Solace.
Players will need to help Kazumi fight off an invasive intelligence in order to save the ship and discover what happened to the first Pilgrimage – and plug the gaps in Elea’s own memory. There’ll be plenty of puzzles to solve on the way, including physics-based stuff, and almost every object is interactive.
I can’t get enough of these atmospheric first-person exploration games, personally. Looks like this one’s coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One, with VR support. Take a look at the trailer and some images below.
