It seems that PAX East is shaping up to be quite the place to be this weekend. That is very true if you are an indie game fan. Not only will Northgard be shown at PAX East but also this rather interesting take on the first-person genre, AWAY Journey to the Unknown.
“I’ve been a long-time fan of first person games, but most of the time, you’re either facing realistic war or very abstract universes. I’ve been waiting for a long time to play this type of games in a different, colorful setting, filled with joyful or wacky characters you can interact with. Also, sometimes I really miss the silliness of the 90’s anime shows we grew up with in Europe. This is how this project started, and I hope others will enjoy this experience as much as we enjoy creating it!” says Aurelien Regard.
Did you check out the preview video above? Looks quite cool, especially that intro. They are spending some money on that and it shows.
The game world of AWAY Journey to the Unknown is quite weird. You aren’t facing off against the normal soldiers or demons that you would in other first person games. No, here you are taking on giant eyeballs and little crab like ankle biters to name just a couple.
Fans of anime and first person games must check out AWAY. It is unique and it is weird. What more could you want in your 3D action games where you are bashing the colorful little creatures that are hellbent on killing you?
If you are attending PAX East, let Playdius know you read about AWAY here on Gravis Ludus.
