Journey to the Savage Planet is an upbeat first-person adventure and exploration game set in a bright and colorful alien world. As an employee of Kindred Aerospace, players are dropped onto the uncharted planet AR-Y 26, deep in a fictitious, far-away corner of the universe. Launched with high hopes but little equipment and no real plan (or even enough fuel to return home), players are invited to explore, catalog alien flora and fauna and determine if this strange planet is fit for human habitation. This humorous return to the Golden Age of sci-fi can be played as a single-player game or with 2-player online co-op.
“Journey to the Savage Planet is a AAA passion project handcrafted by our small team,” said Alex Hutchinson, creative director, Typhoon Studios. “It’s a game about exploration and capitalism and jokes about falling down, but it’s also a hearkening back to the games we played and loved as kids when meandering and experimenting were rewarded more than getting straight from point A to B. We hope it makes you laugh, and we hope you enjoy the journey as much as we enjoyed creating it.”
“Typhoon Studios and Journey to the Savage Planet are a perfect fit for 505’s portfolio of creative, innovative developers and games,” said Neil Ralley, president of 505 Games. “Following in the wake of last year’s successes with Remedy’s Control and Koji Igarashi’s Bloodstained, and the partnership with Kojima Productions to bring Death Stranding to PC later this year, we’re thrilled to start off 2020 strong with the global launch of ‘Savage Planet’. We’ve loved this game since the first time we saw it, and we believe players will feel the same excitement we do as they embark on their interstellar adventures.”
