Action December 2017

AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected is a cartoonish action-adventure game. It was developed by Aurelien Regard, creator of The Next People, and Jim Genisson, level designer of a couple of Rayman games. AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected is inspired by the Japanese children cartoons, both in terms of visuals and atmosphere. The game takes us to a world where modern technology and fantastic beings collide. We play as a brave young boy who goes on various dangerous adventures during which he, along with his friends, fights with enemies. As we play, we explore the game’s world, beat the game’s platform elements, collect items, and fight with enemies. We can recruit every character we meet, including our opponents. It requires us to convince them to do so, so we will have to be really thoughtful and creative when talking with them. AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected has quite unusual but still good looking visuals. The game’s colourful world is in 3D, but all characters are 2D sprites.
