Developed by Q-games, the team behind the Pixeljunk series of games on the PS3, The Tomorrow Children certainly stands out compared to the rest of the current games industry. Even watching the trailer it’s hard to grasp just what is going on.
Taking to the PlayStation Blog, President of Q-games, and Executive Producer on The Tomorrow Children, Dylan Cuthbert, announced the game will release this fall, and explained, “Although the world of The Tomorrow Children is encased in the bleak Void, life still flourishes as humanity claws its way back from the brink of extinction, and players in the roles of ‘Projection Clones’ will take that life into their own hands.”
As far as what exactly that means for the player experience, he continued, saying, “Players will take control the fate of their town and eventually the world itself as they build up and expand it from a nearly empty outpost into a lively home filled with shops, facilities, and even a home of their very own, all while defending everything they’ve built in life and death struggles with invaders from the edges of existence.”
Announced at last year’s Gamescom, the game has undergone a lot of changes. Cuthbert promised the team “has been hard at work on The Tomorrow Children, adding tons of new features… as well as enriching the story and setting. Strange and magical tools, cute and unique clothing, and bizarre and imposing structures are just a few of the new additions players will be able to experience.”
He concluded by saying, “Only a few more months until players will be able to jump into the whimsy and madness for themselves.” Will you be jumping in this fall? Let us know in the comments.
