It’s been a while since we’ve heard any news for Sea of Solitude, now Electronic Arts have revealed that it will release on 5th July 2019.
Sea of Solitude will be made available via digital download on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC under the EA Originals label, and is being developed by German studio Jo-Mei Games. EA described it thus: “Sea of Solitude is an emotional experience that takes players on a personal journey to overcome a young woman’s inner loneliness. Players must help Kay see below the surface and beyond, guiding her through a flooded city landscape in a deeply touching tale of darkness and light. As waters rise and fall to reflect her own state of mind, Kay will meet fantastical creatures and monsters, learn their stories and solve challenges to rid the world of tainted memories.”
Developer Jo-Mei Games’ CEO Cornelia Geppert added: “Sea of Solitudecentres 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. 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.”
EA added some further details regarding Sea of Solitude’s gameplay: “Designed with a striking visual style, Sea of Solitude is an intimate adventure across a beautiful and evolving world where nothing is quite as it seems. Kay’s journey unfolds around dynamic environments as atmospheric in-game weather help visualise the characters’ emotions. Players unlock new areas to explore by overcoming emotional challenges and progressively revealing light and colour into the dark and stormy world. Through unique encounters with a variety of beautiful and terrifying monsters, Kay will discover why her loneliness has turned her into a monster and what it will take to change back to a human.”
