When will PlayStation get its next Journey? That is, the next great stylish indie adventure? Well, it looks like Jett: The Far Shore from Canadian indie developer Superbrothers has a shot at claiming that title. Jett is a slick, stylish sci-fi adventure game that deviates from the things most comparable titles focus on, which is blowing up aliens and collecting resources. Instead, the game will be more exploration and puzzle-driven, with players having to discover what drives the world and aliens encounter to succeed. That said, there are dangers in space, and you’ll encounter more action-based challenges as well. Watch the first gameplay trailer for Jett: The Far Shore below.
Here’s some more info on what you can do expect from Jett: The Far Shore:
In Jett, you play as Mei, an interstellar explorer who is part of a team hoping to find a home for their civilization. The guidelines Overseer Jao has given you are clear: you must track down the source of the hymnwave signal that led you to this mysterious planet and explore the landscape in search of habitability without harming the unique flora and fauna. To that end, you will observe, inspect and catalog your findings as you explore the unfamiliar environment. You must make careful use of your jett’s tools, such as the resonator, dazzle lights and the mechanical grapple that can grab, transport and kick heavy objects.
The distant coast is full of entities coexisting in a dynamic, interactive ecosystem where you jett is the invader. By inspecting and experimenting, you can learn to lure predators to their prey, or combine resin with an ionic liquid to create a much-needed explosive, or dump a huge pursuer into the air through a burst of debilitating nectar from a cause alien plant. There are many creatures and interactions to discover, and not all players have to overcome Jett’s challenges in the same way.
Perhaps most exciting is Jett’s extraordinary blend of story and gameplay. You are drawn into the fate of Mei and her fellow explorers as they persevere through obstacles in their heartfelt quest to create a peaceful home for their people against all odds. But this carefully crafted story is actually set in an open world that you explore and traverse at your own pace. From scientific problem solving to surreal psychological excursions to heart-pounding racing against the clock, it feels like you’re in the middle of a distinctive cinematic experience.
It also sounds like Jett will make good use of the Dualsense controller on the PS5…
The PS5’s DualSense controller offers a great opportunity to do something new in video games. In Jett, we used the controller’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers to immerse you in the vast world of the distant coast and in the pilot seat of your jett: the nuance of walking on different types of terrain, the feeling of your jett as it jumps through aerobatic manoeuvres, pulling the trigger while lying on the wave, and of course crucial gameplay feedback like the hum of your scramjets that begin to destabilize when you push them to their limits.
Jett: The Far Shore will begin its exploration on PC, PS4, and P55 sometime in 2021.
