Following on from Unravel, Fe and A Way Out, the next EA originals title is Sea of Solitude. Gameplay first appeared two years ago, but being produced by a small indie games studio, Jo-Mei Games from Berlin, it’s no wonder it’s taken so long to unveil the game properly but it looks to be worth the wait.
Releasing in early 2019, you play as a young women called Kay who is trapped in her turmoil of loneliness. Stuck in her spiral of madness, Kay turns into a monster – can she become human again?
Navigating the flooded world in her boat, Kay meets other shadow-like creatures who were also once human – are they key to her becoming human again? Dreamlike sequences plague her – which represent heartache, empathy, and hope – these moments look a lot like the Batman Arkham Scarecrow sequences, which is certainly no bad thing.
