Indie game publisher Playdius Games recently brought us a new AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected trailer. The trailer highlights gameplay that features a unique first-person experience that mixes three-dimensional navigation with two-dimensional enemies.
AWAY offers the ability for players to also get a rouge-lite experience as well. This looks like it will be a fun change of pace for FPS players as they can explore a bright and animated world with some tense first-person action in the mix. Players will also gain new weapons along the way – from a simple stick and wrench to fire staffs and guns.
There also is a leveling system where you gradually get better equipment and abilities. The game, though cute and bright, oddly seems to give me some Serious Sam vibes more than anything through things like movement and enemies that range from cute blobs to mutilated people.
I’m curious to see just how much content AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected contains, but until I find out I’ll just think about how nice it will be to enjoy an FPS with a fresh and good-feeling twist. AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected seems right up old-school fps fans alley.
You can pick up AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected for Xbox One, Playstation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can check out the trailer below to see for yourself what I mean.
