Somerville is a platform game released on PC / Windows and developed by indie studio Jumpship – a team founded by Dino Patti, i.e. a co-creator of two bestselling games Inside and Limbo. The game tells of a fate of a small group of people who are trying to survive an invasion of an alien civilization.
Somerville is a side-scrolling game. Similarly to the aforementioned Inside, gameplay is based on traversing large game levels and solving more or less complex puzzles. There are also plenty of arcade challenges as well as stealth-action sequences, in which you must sneak past the eyes of enemies from beyond earth. From time to time you also get to shoot some aggressive aliens.
Released for PC / Windows, Somerville is characterized by its original, dark, and also slightly cartoonish art style, designed by Chris Olsen, film animator who participated in the works on such pictures as Thor, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Skyfall.
