In Other Waters is sure to challenge one’s imagination. As the AI of an abandoned station, it is your duty to aid Ellory Vas. You must help the xenobiologist explore the alien world of Gliese 677Cc. Sent by Minaeve Nomura, the once dormant AI (you) will uncover the mysterious disappearance at the base. With your aid, Vas will make her way through the environment to find her missing partner.
As it relies a great deal on player imagination, it may not be everyone’s speed. Players communicate with Vas through a 2D computer interface. The game can be played through the use of mouse or touch input, depending on player preference.
As the AI in her suit, you will unlock certain upgrades and new areas as you progress. Through drawings and reading the xenobiologist’s notes, you help catalog the new life and environments you encounter. While the game doesn’t display anything past a computer interface, each individual player’s experience may be completely different. What you discover together may be the key to ensuring humanity’s future. It is a very in-depth look at the relationship between man and machine from a simple perspective.
A One-man Team
Jump Over The Age is a one-man studio by Gareth Damien Martin. It has already won an award at 2019 IndieCade Europe Jury Prix. With a background in game design and art, some might say it makes sense than Martin creates his own world. With previous experience as places like Eurogamer and Kotaku, Martin is familiar with what will draw players in.
