Somerville tells an Inside-esque story on Xbox, Game Pass and PC

-

When you have former CEO and co-founder of Playdead Dino Patti on your team, the hopes are that independent developer Jumpship has crafted a masterpiece in storytelling, akin to Limbo and Inside that came before. Enter, Somerville…

And straight off the bat, taking one look at the visuals of Somerville – releasing today on Xbox and PC via the medium of Game Pass – and the inspirations are clearly there: following a sci-fi catastrophe, this dark and depressing world throws us back to the sadness and terror that plagued those prior releases. But, enough fanboying over Playdead’s titles – this is time for Jumpship and Somerville to shine!

On both the small and large scale, Somerville tells a tale of desperation and conflict. On the one hand, our protagonist is constantly battling to repair a fractured family, and restore it to its once happy unit. Behind the scenes however – and wherever you look in the foggy backdrops – one can see the aftermath of an extraterrestrial invasion that has devastated the land, and thrown the world into major conflict. 

In a gameplay sense, you’ll be attempting to hide from alien lasers and stalkers that could reside at every corner: rapid reflexes and making use of your environment is key if you are to survive. Oh, and you have a little doggy with you – even more incentive to get outta there!

Somerville is now available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC. It is also available on Xbox Game Pass for those of you enjoying the fruits of the service. Otherwise, make sure to pick up a copy of Somerville today via the Xbox Store, for £22.49.

Our review is coming in hot. 

Game Description:

In the wake of catastrophe you must find the means to make your family whole again. Somerville is a Sci-Fi adventure grounded in the intimate repercussions of large scale conflict.

I'm an avid gamer who will play pretty much anything... but stick an open world or adventure game in front of me and I'm more than happy.
