Superbrothers A / V, the indie suit that made Sword and Sworcery in 2011, turned around last year when it introduced its next game, Jett: The Far Shore. This revealing trailer didn't say much beyond "space" and "cold vibrations," but that was corrected a year later with an in-depth gameplay trailer that was shown during the broadcast on real time Sony of Play.
Developed jointly by Superbrothers A / V and Pine Scented, Jett is an exploratory action game that centers around your spaceship in flight (called a "jet"). You'll spend the day tracing an unexplored "mythical oceanic planet" to track down something called a "hymn wave sign" and avoid the planet's less friendly creatures.
Avoiding is the right way to put it, because Superbrothers explains that it will not fight nature. Instead of rockets and pistols, he will handle scanners and probes, using stealth and speed to stay out of sight of the planet.
A "relaxed exploration" game where you have to beat a monster from time to time? Sounds amazing. The Super Brothers seem to be aware that the tone and look are reminiscent of No Man's Sky, so it's making it very clear that Jett isn't a resource-gathering survival simulator. Apparently, it’s a single-player game, with an open world and a story that you can discover at your own pace. That said, you’ll spend time scanning weird plants and getting out of your boat to get first-person sequences, so in the end, it might not be a bad comparison.
Jett: The Far Shore will arrive sometime in the winter of 2021 on Epic Games Store and PS5.
