Quickie Review - ELEA - Episode One

"Wow, what a nice futuristic house. Wait, what the heck is happening here?"

And these were my words for the first hour or so of gameplay time for me. I am still recovering from it. I was so hipnotic. Whoa, hey, didn't see you there, guys! Welcome, welcome! For it is time. Time to be quickly, and mildly entertained with yet another piece of Quickie Review cake! This time I bring you a curious one. I was not sure of what to think about this game when I first saw its trailer. Developed by small studio Kyodai, It seemed very interesting at first but at the same this maybe a little bit generic, to be honest. Anyway, thanks to the kindness of SOEDESCO, I've graciously been given the opportunity to play the game beforehand and now tell you about my thoughts and how wrong about the generic part I was. Oh, and the game is console exlusive to Xbox One, so, not too shabby eh? So, without further delay, here we go:

Surreal Sci-Fi Adventure ELEA is coming to Xbox One as console exclusive soon


The first episode of the Sci-Fi Adventure, ELEA, is launching really soon on Xbox One and Steam. In this episodic first-person Sci-Fi adventure you play as a space scientist recovering your lost husband. Venture out on a curious interstellar journey, full of devastating memories and startling secrets.

Elea is a surreal sci-fi adventure game in which you play as space scientist Elea. In 2073, Earth was struck by a horrid childhood disease and Elea’s husband Ethan joined an expedition to colonize Solace, a habitable exoplanet, to save humanity from extinction. The interstellar ship he was on, Pilgrimage, went radio silent shortly after it reached planet Solace. Thirteen years later, Elea joins a recovery mission to investigate the faith of the expedition. What follows is a wondrous journey through space.

Features

- Unravel a rich, touching story inspired by books of classic sci-fi writers
- Submerge yourself in amazing graphics powered by Unreal Engine 4
- Discover gorgeous space environments, spectacular vistas and detailed interiors
- Expect the unexpected on this curious journey through outer space

Story

Elea is a game that takes the player on the deeply personal journey of a woman, whose life is marked by loss, grief and self-accusation in the aftermath of a global pandemic that turned her youngest boy into a raging psychopath. Luckily, an Earth-like exoplanet within an achievable distance from the Solar system had been recently discovered. Pooling volunteers from around the globe, a first-of-a-kind interstellar spacecraft was built and sent to colonize the yet unexplored planet. The gargantuan ship was named Pilgrimage, embodying the hopes of all of the humanity. To everyone’s dismay, shortly after a successful arrival, the Pilgrimage went on total radio silence. What caused it remains a mystery.

13 years later, research starship Recovery has arrived on site to investigate the fate of the expedition. The player takes the role of the space scientist River Elea Catherine Jones. She is driven above all by a personal goal – to find her husband Ethan, who occupied a prominent position on the Pilgrimage’s scientific crew. By putting the character up against events and phenomena which are beyond human grasp, the game aims to defy the conventional notions of personal accountability, choice and meaning of life. It is a story about our fragility as a species, about finding solace through surrender.


ELEA launches (console exclusively) on Xbox One (with 4K enhanced visuals on Xbox One X) and Steam on September 6th.

Dead Age launching soon on Xbox One - Trailer




Survive the zombie apocalypse with turn-based combat and permanent death! Manage survivors, go on dangerous scavenging runs, build alliances, craft equipment, make difficult story-influencing decisions, defend your camp against undead hordes and experience non-linear rogue-lite elements. In addition, each new playthrough in this Indie Survival-RPG offers different random missions and survivors to meet.

Just after the zombie outbreak you were fortunate enough to join a group of survivors and hole up in their camp. But that does not put you out of danger yet! Food supplies are running low, injured survivors must be tended to and materials have to be scavenged to keep the camp intact. The zombie threat increases steadily and gangs of hostile survivors will cause you to stay on the defensive.

Another feature of Dead Age is its non-linear story with actual in-game consequences. Decisions you make in conflict situations affect the story's future. You can choose to be a hero and save more survivors, or let them die to stock up on supplies. You can build romance relationships with other survivors or start rivalries that may have disastrous chain reactions. Daily events offer new dangers and situations in which you must make choices which will affect your camp's chances of survival. Live long enough, and have a chance to unlock one of the game's six possible endings.

Pre-order Dead Age now (currently 20% off) on the Microsoft Store.
