EA and developer Jo-Mei Games have announced that Sea of Solitude, the story-driven adventure game, will launch worldwide on July 5 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Sea of Solitude takes players on the emotional and personal journey of Kay, a young woman suffering from loneliness. You will guide her through a flooded city, where the water rise and fall to reflect her state of mind. On her journey, you will meet fantastical creatures and monsters, learn their stories, and solve challenges to rid the world of 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,” Cornelia Geppert, CEO of Jo-Mei Games, said in a statement. “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.”
As you can see in the Sea of Solitude release date trailer (that’s only available on social media at the moment), the game features a striking visual style. This style, alongside an in-game weather system, helps to visualize the characters’ emotions, and will dynamically change as Kay overcomes “emotional challenges” and add more light and color into the dark and stormy world.
Some of these challenges include beautiful and terrifying monsters, all connected to Kay’s loneliness. Kay herself has turned into such a beast, and need to understand what it will take to become human again. Maybe the other creatures can regain their humanity as well, with a little help.
Sea of Solitude will be launching worldwide on July 5, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Origin.
