You may have spotted Journey to the Savage Planet during the The Game Awards, when the offbeat sci-fi adventure game was first announced via a teaser trailer.
But this quick introduction to the game intentionally did not give much away – just it’s alien planet setting and dry sense of humour (the only person shown in the trailer is another colonist who slipped on a banana skin and died a few feet from the front door of their lander).
“Most trailers end with some kind of hero shot,” creative director Alex Hutchinson tells me. “Ours is the opposite. Our guy here literally fell out of the door and died. We’re trying as well to establish this is a game with a sense of humour.”
