Somerville, the mysterious sci-fi adventure game, finally has a release date and is only a few weeks away. The game arrives on November 15.
The experience comes from Jumpship, a studio founded by Dino Patti, the former CEO of Limbo and developer of Inside Playdead. That shared DNA is evident in Somerville’s somber, surreal atmosphere. The game revolves around a rural family – a father, mother and child – whose lives are turned upside down by a cataclysmic event involving extraterrestrial travelers. The journey unfolds as a side-scrolling adventure game where the family must survive this apocalypse as it tears through small towns and beyond. You can check out the most recent trailer below.
Somerville was first announced during E3 2021 and most recently appeared during the Game Awards last December. The game will be available on Xbox consoles (including Game Pass) and PC.
