We’re in the crazy period for game releases right now. All the heavy hitters are lining up to persuade you to open up your wallet and splash the cash. Just a few days ago we saw The Outer Worlds as well as the latest Call of Duty. In the next few weeks, we’ll also have Need for Speed Heat and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order to lighten our wallets. You would have thought that with such juggernauts around that indie games would be running for cover and aiming for a December or early January release. Well, Lost Ember clearly isn’t concerned about the competition as it has just announced a release date of 22nd November.
Lost Ember, from Mooneye Studios, is an “animal exploration adventure game”. It sees you playing as a wolf that can inhabit other animals. The trailer alone has you taking control of birds, fish, and even a bull. Speaking of the trailer you can check it out below along with the official description of the game –
Explore a breathtakingly beautiful world that nature has claimed back from mankind. As a wolf with the power to inhabit and control other animals and with a trusted companion at your side, you’ll discover ruins of long forgotten civilizations and ancient cultures that tell a story of hope, loss, ambition and failure.
Your main character will be the wolf. Majestic, fast and agile, you’re perfectly fitted to run through the woods, explore the world and chase all the other animals you encounter.
When the wolf encounters other creatures, you can inhabit them, and act as them, using their unique abilities to go to places the wolf never could. Take flight over the canopy as a parrot, dive into the depths of the sea as a fish, or dig underground as a mole, there are many ways to discover your environment.
Only by inhabiting these creatures can you uncover the secrets behind the fall of the old world! A once a mighty civilization now lies in ruins, its majestic temples and glorious civic buildings enshrined by nature itself.
Reveal their fate and get to know the characters behind its fall.
