It seems like there’s been a deluge of news about a bunch of games getting censored, anime getting butchered by Social Justice Warriors, and major social media, payment, and distribution platforms banning people and prohibiting content. Well, I suppose we can mix things up a bit with a game that was announced during this year’s Game Awards show that flew under the radar from all those other “diverse” and “inclusive” games that took up the spotlight at this year’s event.
Details on the game are sparse but it appears to be another Borderlands-style game where an off-kilter corporation named Kindred Aerospace facilitates travel to uncharted planets in deep space. Your job is to collect information, explore the planet, and report your findings back to base. You can check out the reveal trailer from The Game Awards below.
The initial touchdown will see players taking to the surface of the planet with very little equipment in tow, no actual plan on how to survive on the planet, and no real help.
You’ll need to find out if the planet is habitable for humans, while also interacting with and likely fighting against the native inhabitants.
Gameplay details aren’t shared, we don’t get to see much in the way of graphics, and a lot of the game still seems to be a mystery at this point, but given that it’s launching in 2019 expect more trailers in the new year.
Visually the game really does remind me of Borderlands, but hopefully there’s a lot more to the title than what’s implied in the trailer.
You can keep an eye on the development of Journey To The Savage Planet from Typhoon Games and 505 Games by giving a warm visit to the official website.
