As the end of another frigid January approaches,
so too does the triumphant release of Journey
to the Savage Planet! Starting today,
you can join Kindred Aerospace’s Pioneer Program, agreeing to be strapped to a poorly
made rocket and hurtled thousands of lightyears into undiscovered space,
eventually landing on an uncharted planet with almost no resources, tools or
equipment of any kind.
Why, you might ask, does a massive interstellar
exploration corporation send you on a critical mission with none of the
necessary gear? The answer is simple and comes in two parts: 1) The idea is
silly and made us laugh and 2) Finding and creating these tools is a defining
part of the game’s structure. The more you explore, the more your skills and
ability grow with you! And the more your skills and abilities grow, the more exploration
opportunities become available. You seeing the loop we’ve gone for here?
Over the course of about 15-20 hours of
exploring and upgrading we hope you’ll finally put down the controller, feel a
warm tingle of satisfaction, and move on with your life. Essentially, as a
group of about 25 old-people, we made the kind of deeply finishable, concise
game we wanted to play. No loot boxes, no microtransactions, no daily raids, no
grind: Just a reasonable amount of content that can be played, enjoyed and
finished long before it starts to test your patience and you begin to resent
it. You know, like they used to make!
And because we’re all veterans of the AAA
development scene, we’ve all spent more time than we care to contemplate
crafting dark, washed out worlds with brooding anti-heroes and involved, super
serious plots. Not in this game! With Journey to the Savage Planet, it
was important to us that the game be lighthearted, bright, and fun. You know,
something that’s more likely to make you giggle than leave you feeling
exhausted and miserable.
So, if you’re picking up what we’re putting
down, and you like the cut of our jib, grab Journey
to the Savage Planet today for the irresponsibly low price
of $29.99 on the Microsoft Store. And, hey, grab a friend while you’re at it, because
the whole game, start to finish, is completely playable in two player co-op.
Can you think of a better way to stave off the cold embrace of Winter?
