Maybe it’s near you? I’m not your dad
Independent Bulgarian developer Kyodia has unveiled Project Elea today, which is an “interactive storytelling adventure inspired by the work of classic 20th century sci-fi authors.” It’ll wield the Unreal Engine 4 to tell a story regarding AI and interstellar travel, which either sounds pretty dope or pretty tired, I can’t really tell.
Kyodia promises a “dramatic story,” citing Stanislaw Lem (Solaris), Arthur C. Clarke (2001: A Space Odyssey), and Frank Herbert (Dune) as direct influences — that’s…quite the pedigree! It’s only in development for PC, but they’re thinking about VR compatibility and other systems (including “Nintendo’s upcoming next-gen console”).
I’ll have to keep an eye on this one.
