Home developer Benjamin Rivers is bringing his next game exclusively to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in 2015.
Announced today, Alone With You is a “sci-fi game for people who love adventure, exploring and maybe even a little romance,” according to Rivers.
“You play as the sole remaining member of a doomed terraforming colony,” Rivers said on the PlayStation Blog. “Your planet will crumble and implode in less than a month, and you must use your remaining time to try to escape.”
But only a single escape pod remains, and it’s not working. And the people who specialize in its systems have all died as a result of the colony’s mysterious failure. But the colony’s AI is still in tact, and you’ll need to work together to get off the planet, recreating the key colony members and learning how to fix the ship.
“You’ll explore half a dozen unique areas, using your scanner to find things you need, and return home safely,” Rivers said. “Along the way you’ll piece together bits of what happened before the colonists met their end. Every day, you’ll converse with your ever-present AI companion to learn more about the planet and your quest—you may even get to know each other pretty well, which should give you both plenty to discuss as you work together, day after day.”
As for the romance part, Rivers teases that recreating your former colleagues “might not be as straightforward as you imagine.”
