Oddyssey: Your Space, Your Way is being created by a newly formed indie studio, Weird Fish, with a AAA pedigree that includes Dying Light, Dead Island, Painkiller, and Call of Juarez. Players are sent on a journey in a small support ship named the "Oddyssey", which players will use to scour the galaxy to look for resources for the "ARK", which is a mega-mothership housing 2 million of Earth's last remaining colonists. This sounds pretty heavy, but instead, it's a deep space cartoon sandbox with "absurdly light-hearted humor and a classic visual style." Of course, they say that while you are going across the galaxy struggling to keep humanity alive, but whatever works right?
Players will be playing with a crew, and any of the crew that die can be replaced, which is good because exploring the galaxy is risky business. Players will navigate nebulas, asteroid fields and gather resources to help the ARK survive.
While the game can be played in single-player, there's also 4-player local co-op or 8-player online co-op which allows players to build new rooms, invent new technologies, mine materials, and just mess around. The game is open-ended, so you can choose to follow the storyline or do whatever you want as you roam and explore the galaxy to your heart's content.
Oddyssey: Your Space, Your Way is coming on Steam's Early Access program soon. For more information on this space-faring title, stay tuned to TechRaptor for more details.
