Check out ten minutes of AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected right here

How to make friends and influence people

Indie developer Aurelien Regard and publisher Playdius have released ten minutes of gameplay footage from the colourful and weird-looking first-person adventure AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected, which is scheduled for release on multiple platforms next month.

AWAY sees players take control of a large cast of strange and unique characters, building a party of interchangeable avatars with which to tackle the game’s challenges, enemies and puzzles. Initially starting out a hapless child, players will traverse the day-glo terrain gathering allies and friends whilst engaging in a light-hearted “feel-good FPS”, slathered in anime aesthetics.

Sounds intriguing, perhaps a title that has to be experienced in person to be truly understood. You can check out ten minutes of gameplay footage below. AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected launches in February for PS4, PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
