CALABASAS, Calif. – March 26, 2019 – Following the first-look hands-off demos of Journey to the Savage Planet at the Game Developers’ Conference (GDC) last week, Montreal-based Typhoon Studios have released a short environmental teaser video and new screenshots showcasing the colorful, vibrant and even  humorous world of their debut game, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in early 2020. Take a trip back to the Golden Age of science fiction by watching the video now: https://youtu.be/ScH_kPOR74w

 

Journey to the Savage Planet is an aspirational and upbeat first-person adventure and exploration game set in a bright and colorful alien world 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 are dropped onto the uncharted planet AR-Y 26, deep in a fictitious, far-away corner of the universe. Launched with high hopes but little equipment and no real plan, players are invited to explore, catalogue alien flora and fauna and determine if this strange planet is fit for human habitation.

 

“As a studio we have a deep love of Golden Age science fiction, but it feels like some of the positivity and sense of adventure has been lost in recent years,” said Alex Hutchinson, creative director and Typhoon Studios co-founder. “There are too many dystopias for my tastes, so we wanted Journey to the Savage Planet to give space exploration its sense of adventure back in homage to those early sci fantasies and add a comedic twist. This teaser is just a small taste of what we’ve been working on; we can’t wait to show off more in the coming months.”

 

Global videogames publisher 505 Games will bring Journey to the Savage Planet to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the Epic Games store for PC in early 2020.
