Sea of Solitude is an emotional experience that takes players on a personal journey to overcome a young woman’s inner loneliness. You’ll be helping Kay wandering through flooded cities, facing monsters along the way to rid off ‘tainted memories’.
“Sea of Solitude centers on the essence of loneliness and tugs on the heartstrings of its players by mirroring their own reality. It’s by far the most artistic and personal project I’ve ever created, written during a very emotional time in my life,” said Cornelia Geppert, CEO of Jo-Mei Games.
She also said, “Designing characters based on emotions was a deeply personal achievement for our team and we’re so excited for players to soon experience Kay’s powerful story of self-discovery and healing.”
The game is designed with a striking visual, offering an intimate adventure of self-discovery across a beautiful and evolving world. Kay’s journey unfolds around dynamic environments as atmospheric in-game weather help visualize the characters’ emotions. New areas are unlocked by overcoming emotional challenges and progressively revealing light and colour into the dark and stormy world.
Sea of Solitude seems to be an interesting pitch, putting psychology as one of the main themes with an interesting take. I’m keeping my eyes on this game.
Sea of Solitude will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC via Origin on 5 July, and will cost USD19.99 (RM84).
