Somerville- a new game by Limbo and Inside co-creator Dino Patti's new studio Jumpship, is all set to release on November 15 alongside Pentiment, a game by Obsidian. It's a third-person adventure game following a family of four on a post-apocalyptic Earth. The parents and the son with their dog must navigate around the hurdles like ancient civilization ruins and mysterious aliens. Players must also work with other human survivors in order to keep the family safe. The game has been in development for close to five years now, and Jumpship is all set to release it this month.
Somerville is arriving this month on November 15, to the Xbox One, Xbox series X and Series S, and Windows via Steam. Unfortunately for PlayStation owners, you guys might have to wait a little longer for it to arrive for PS4 and PS5. If you're wondering why there's so much surrounding this game, it's because of the names working on it. Dino Patti is the former co-founder of Playdead, which is the studio behind the two very popular games mentioned in the very first sentence of this article. Both these games were considered some of the most critically-acclaimed indie games of all time. It still remains to be uncovered if this game lives up to these expectations, but we know for sure that the wait is almost over!
Unlike the other games Limbo and Inside, Somerville has a full 3D movement. The alien-shooting scenario that can be seen in the trailer also says that it might have an action-adventure touch to it. Somerville has a short but intriguing overview,
“In the wake of catastrophe, you must find the means to make your family whole again. Somerville is a Sci-Fi adventure grounded in the intimate repercussions of a large-scale conflict.” Jumpship also describes the game as a sci-fi adventure "e “grounded in the intimate repercussions of a large-scale conflict." Players will find themselves in an unlikable terrain in an effort to uncover the mystery of an alien life force that might come to earth.
Jumpship has released 4 teaser trailers and one full trailer so far. The trailer is sparse, giving us very short glimpses of a creepy side-scroller between its logo. Somerville was first announced all the way back in 2017, with Playdead's ex-chief working on the game as a producer.
