Set the sails again
The world is under water, your task is to find a new home with your ship. An atmospheric vehicle adventure with a soulful story is promised. You also have to dive deep.
You will encounter the ruins of a lost civilization, solve puzzles and of course keep your ship moving. The game’s pace is described by the developers as meditative and with the soundtrack, no words are needed to deliver a life-affirming experience.
On the PlayStation blog Don Schmocker of Okomotive has his say in detail: “Players will find sunken objects, images and buildings – victims of the flood, all of which tell of a past that no longer exists. This telling the story about the environment means a very special kind of game design, but we find that choosing how much of the story we’re looking for and how much of the story we’re looking for helps build a strong bond between the world and want to find you while playing,” says Schmocker.
