It is an undeniable fact that the independent gaming industry is always open to innovations and the most risky sector in the gaming world. As such, we can see many unsuccessful projects because the risk that developers take in the independent gaming industry is financially small, and vice versa. The independent gaming industry is one of the cornerstones of today’s gaming world, thanks to its innovative ideas that inspire even large-budget productions.
What kind of a game is The Sojourn?
The Sojourn Preliminary Review
Now we have a game built on a rather interesting idea than our competitors. Developed by British independent game developer Shifting Tides, The Sojourn will take you on a mysterious and mystical adventure. With a first-person camera angle, The Sojourn draws attention with its graphics and color palette. Thanks to its design similar to the Journey series, we will proceed by solving puzzles in The Sojourn, which we think will have a relaxing effect on gamers. While we are told that there are parallel worlds in the game, we will look for answers to the questions asked by traveling between darkness and light and adhering to the story. In addition, the dark and light mechanics on which developers fall, will be useful in puzzles as well as storytelling.
The Sojourn, which is said to contain dozens of puzzles in contrast to the games described as a walking simulator, will be released with a semi-open world. PS4 and Xbox One, as well as the PC platform, the game, PS4 Pro and Xbox One X will support 4K resolution. The developers underscore that in addition to the gameplay mechanics, they also put a lot of effort into the game’s atmosphere. Wandering around the world of The Sojourn, which has a fantastic theme as a concept, can make you feel like wandering around fairy tales. In addition to the outdoor designs, the developers also emphasized the interior design and managed to show the atmosphere of the game more attractive with various light games.
In the GDC 2019 event we left behind, the game which was selected first in the Best in Play category will appear in the following year. The Sojourn, which we expect to gain new information about the game at the upcoming Gamescom 2019, may be one of the most ambitious independent productions of this year. If you like to spend time with independent games and are interested in games built on interesting ideas, we recommend that you take The Sojourn on your radar. Developed with Unreal Engine 4, The Sojourn has the potential to capture you for hours on display.
