Typhoon Studios, in partnership with publishers 505 Games, unveiled their debut title at The Game Awards last night with an exciting trailer to announce Journey to the Savage Planet. It’s vibrant, strange and looks absolutely lovely!
Aiming for a launch in 2019, Journey to the Savage Planet is an upbeat first-person adventure game set in a bright and colourful alien world that’s filled with weird and wonderful creatures. As an employee of Kindred Aerospace, which proudly touts its rating as the “4th Best Interstellar Exploration Company”, players will be dropped onto an uncharted planet deep in a fictitious, far-away corner of the universe. Left with high hopes but little equipment and no real plan, players are tasked with exploring, cataloguing alien flora and fauna, and also determining if the planet is fit for human habitation, or not.
“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!”
Developed by the offbeat Canadian studio of Typhoon Studios, and in partnership with 505 Games, MAKERS Fund and Epic, Journey to the Savage Planet is looking to arrive in 2019 for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
