It is already a space sci-fi epic on PC, but with a new partnership between the Dutch developers at KeokeN Interactive, and the award winning publishing team of Wired Productions, Deliver Us The Moon is fast gearing up to provide something special to console too. And the best bit? It’ll be coming to Xbox One, PS4 and PC later in 2019.
If you’ve ever wanted to take a giant leap into the unknown, then Deliver Us The Moon will provide it. Powered by Unreal Engine 4 and including both the currently available ‘Fortuna’ and the as yet unreleased ‘Tombaugh’ story expansion, Deliver Us The Moon, is set in an apocalyptic near-future where the Earth’s resources have been depleted and humanity begins to look to the stars.
This sees nations banding together to create the World Space Agency – an organization tasked with solving the extreme energy crisis. The solution is simple. Colonization and exploitation of the moon’s natural reserves of Helium-3 to serve the energy needs of a growing Earth population. Suddenly though, and without warning, communications with the Moon cease, and the energy source is lost. It’s critical to therefore re-establish the energy supply and with it hope for the human race.
Deliver Us The Moon promises to be a thrilling do-or-die adventure n which we’ll experience zero gravity, explore barren deserts, take in huge space stations and stumble upon abandoned settlements on the Moon’s surface. When the needs of the many outweigh those of the few, Earth’s last hope – a lone astronaut – must be the saviour of humanity in a desolate, inhospitable environment. With a dimly lit ASE A.I. drone their only companion in the dark vacuum of space, players must piece together the events that befell a lunar colony through a narrative-driven experience unlike any other.
“With just 12 years to save the planet from irreversible climate change KeokeN’s brilliant narrative cuts close to the bone.” Said Leo Zullo, Managing Director, Wired Productions, “2019 marks half a century since the first moon landings, a great celebration of exploration alongside a backdrop of private enterprise embarking on a new space race – with exploitation at the forefront.”
“Reaching your game’s full potential and getting it out there on the market is tough. The games industry is a wasteland filled with cowboys, and in this landscape it’s hard to find honest, passionate, real and hardworking people that are able to make the difference for your product. That is exactly why we found home in the UK with the great folks at Wired Productions,” said Koen Deetman, Game Director at KeokeN Interactive.
Interested? We certainly think the premise is real and look forward to seeing Deliver Us The Moon launch on Xbox One and PS4 later this year, with it including the Tombaugh story expansion. Players who’ve already supported the game by buying Deliver Us The Moon: Fortuna on Steam will receive Tombaugh via a free update when it launches as part of Deliver Us The Moon later in 2019.
