The game comes from the hand of Superbrothers (Sword & Sworcery), who is collaborating with Pine Scented Software on this new project. This week we have known his playabilityas well as a new set of images.
The mystical journey of JETT: The Far Shore
JETT: The Far Shore invites players on an interstellar journey to find a better future for a town haunted by oblivion; it can be enjoyed in the first and third person. Defined as a very cinematic adventure, users will embark on this odyssey as the explorer mei, with whom we have to investigate a vast unknown territory. “Glide above the waves, travel the pristine shores and travel through forests of another world,” the title details. The title is characterized by offering an “intricate and systemic” open world, which serves as the backdrop for a story of “courage, wonder and regret.”
“We aspired to create a video game to express our own feelings of wonder when we looked up at the starry sky,” Superbrothers creative director Craig D. Adams said in the trailer. “The premise of JETT involves exploration and discoveryHowever, our design is not based on combat or resource extraction, and the characters do their best to walk lightly, giving indigenous wildlife a wide margin, striving to adapt and avoid conflicts“.

But not everything will be peace and harmony: in this adventure we will also meet some threats. For example, we find the kolos: enemies that stand out for their enormous size, dexterity and cunning; while we will also have to solve the mystery of the hymnwave: “An interstellar invitation that prompted a people to seek salvation beyond the sea of stars in their troubled sky.”
It should be noted that JETT: The Far Shore I will use the optical technology and adaptive triggers of the PS5 DualSense controller, in order to give the players of this console an even more immersive experience. The game will be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC (Epic Games Store) this same 2021.
