Developer Polygon Treehouse’s “dark and contemporary fairytale” Röki has resurfaced with a brand-new trailer ahead of a more thorough showing at this year’s E3.

Polygon Treehouse, which was founded by former Guerilla Cambridge art directors Tom Jones and Alex Kanaris-Sotiriou, first unveiled Röki back in 2017, a few short months after the Sony studio’s closure. Two years on, the atmospheric adventure has progressed enough that it’s ready for the spotlight at E3.

Before that, however, there’s a brand-new trailer, offering a first look at the striking Röki in action. It sees the beautiful concept work first seen in 2017 now more fully realised in-game, with much of the video’s run-time spent lingering on the gorgeous landscape, inspired by the Scandinavian wilderness, as protagonist Tove embarks on her quest to save her family.
