The first episode in this space adventure is available now.
Last week saw the release of the first episode of surreal sci-fi game Elea, as it launched on to Xbox One, and Steam.
In Elea, you play as space scientist of the same name. In 2073, Earth was struck by a horrid childhood disease and Elea’s husband Ethan joined an expedition to colonize Solace, a habitable exoplanet, to save humanity from extinction. The interstellar ship he was on, Pilgrimage, went radio silent shortly after it reached planet Solace. Thirteen years later, our protagonist joins a recovery mission to investigate the faith of the expedition. What follows is an episodic and wondrous journey through space.
The first episode takes us somewhere else however, as Elea awakens in what appears to be Mexico. In reality however, she is not in her home but in a recovery room somewhere, years later, revisiting her memories in some sort of simulation. As the memory trip progresses, the house and its surroundings start to change and deteriorate, as time passes and grief descends on a home that was once full of love and expectations.
Key Features of the game include:
- Unravel a rich, touching story inspired by books of classic sci-fi writers
- Submerge yourself in amazing graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4
- Discover gorgeous space environments, spectacular vistas and detailed interiors
- Expect the unexpected on this curious journey through outer space
The first episode of Elea is available to purchase now from Steam and the Xbox One store.
