Breaking Walls has launched the Kickstarter campaign for AWAY: The Survival Series, its third-person adventure game for PlayStation 4 and PC that “brings nature documentaries to life.” It is seeking CAD$60,000 in funding for a final release in Q1 2020.
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
A storm is coming…
Set in a distant future, a series of natural disasters threatens the survival of every species on the planet. As you venture deeper into the wilderness, do you have what it takes to make it out alive?
Inspired by nature documentaries, AWAY: The Survival Series is a third-person adventure game that takes you on the Sugar Glider’s breathtaking journey into the wild.
As cataclysmic storms bear down on the planet, you must travel across vast environments in search of safer lands. From the mighty treetops to the forest floor, immerse yourself in nature as you explore a vibrant world brimming with life, but beware of the dangers that await on your journey…
- Immerse Yourself in Nature – Watch the world around you come to life as you explore a rich diversity of stunning environments and uncover the hidden life that lies deep within the forests, caverns, and swamps.
- Become the Sugar Glider – Sitting near the bottom of the food chain, the Sugar Glider makes up for its small size with superior agility as you jump, climb, and glide through your surroundings.
- Explore a Rich Ecosystem – From tiny insects to mighty beasts, the world of AWAY is filled with animals of all shapes and sizes. But you must be cautious, as dangerous predators await in these troubled lands…
- Enchanting Musical Score – Having worked on hundreds of major game and movie soundtracks, including the Planet Earth II and Life nature documentaries, Mike Raznick brings his experience as a multi-award winning composer and audio director to AWAY with an enchanting orchestral score.
While the game tells the story of the Sugar Glider, Breaking Walls hopes to make some of the other animals and insects you encounter in the game playable through the Kickstarter campaign. Each animal has its own unique traits and attributes through which the world can be experienced.
