After the critical and commercial success of Limbo and Inside, Dino Patti, co-founder and former CEO of Playdead, is teaming up with an independent game studio for a brand new game titled Somerville.
Somerville is being developed by newcomer Jumpship and is based on an original IP by Chris Olsen. The game was revealed with a surprisingly short teaser trailer. While we don’t learn much from the trailer, it does have the same eery vibe and feeling that something is a bit off.
What we do know is that the game is a sci-fi action adventure that follows the lives of individuals in the wake of a global catastrophe. Could the neon lights and strange futuristic buildings indicate some sort of alien invasion? Hopefully, Jumpship reveals more about the game in the next few months.
