Adapt has an official announcement trailer. The trailer was published earlier today alongside a press release for the upcoming survival evolution game.
Adapt is a game that asks players to create and evolve their own species. Players will fight to survive against harsh environments, lack of food, and even other hostile creatures.
If you think this all looks and sounds a little familiar, you’re not alone. Adapt has been compared to Maxis and Electronic Arts‘ 2008 survival evolution game Spore. In fact, publisher Slug Disco Studios have coined the phrase “spore-like” to describe the genre.
Today’s announcement featured key art by Júlia d’Oliveira, and the trailer is set to music by Louie Taylor. In today’s press release, developer Paul Hervé shared his thoughts about the game and its trailer:
“Working with Slug Disco has been really fantastic; and so rewarding to see all of the amazing feedback and excitement people have for the game as it gains visibility. I really couldn’t ask for more from collaborators. I’m elated with how the new trailer has turned out, and with the amazing audio work from Louie Taylor on the score. I was instantly super impressed by Júlia’s cover art. I’m truly amazed at how effortlessly she transitioned her wonderful paleo-art style into the more colorful, whimsical art style of Adapt.”
Slug Disco Studios share that enthusiasm. Studio Director Liam Comerford said:
“After trying out Adapt for the first time, seeing the depth of its creature editor, alongside a stunningly colourful world full of unique creations interacting with one another, we knew Paul had something special, and that we wanted to be part of it. Our job is now to get the word out and let as many players know about Adapt as possible, and it’s much more fun to do that with a project where we can confidently say “I wish we’d made that”. We’re really excited to see how the game develops, and what the community makes of it (and creates in it)!”
If a Spore-like game intrigues you, then you’re in luck. There is no word yet on exactly when Adapt will be released into Early Access, but a free demo for the game is out now on Steam.
