It’s “O-fish-ial”! Your chance to rebuild society from floating pieces of junk is almost here! Announced in a colorfully fun trailer, Flotsam, developed by Belgium-based team Pajama Llama Games, sets sail for Early Access on PC and Mac this September. Check it out for yourself below:
Flotsam is a 2D game which takes place in a post-apocalyptic world covered by water. Survivors have begun to live again on floating towns made from junk and trash. With the help of other survivors, players can explore the vast sea full of ruins, reefs, and sea caves while building and creating new societies from the recycled trash lying around. Even ocean friends, like seagulls and dolphins, will assist with your progression of society.
Juda-Ben Gordier, co-founder at Pajama Llama Games shared their thoughts on the game’s unique nature:
Flotsam‘s theme originated from an animation project one of our founders created, about people living in a flooded world. We took this spark and created a prototype, which eventually grew to become Flotsam. We fell in love with the combination of the setting and gameplay. We all had an urge to create the game, so we did.
Josh Larson, Chief Business Officer at Kongregate, writes, “From the very beginning we’ve been captivated by the game’s whimsical charm set on top of a post-apocalyptic world, and are incredibly impressed by the work that Pajama Llama has done to really make an outstanding game.”
This already award-winning indie will be here soon, but those of you attending Gamescom 2019 will get the chance to try out Flotsam’s new, playable demo in the Indie Arena Booth before anyone else. For those of us who have to wait, Flotsam will be available on an Early Access release for Mac and PC September 26, 2019.
