When we decided to create Away: The Survival Series, we wanted to make a game that would immerse you in your own personal documentary. A game where you experience nature with the eyes of an animal. Well, after four years of development, we look forward to taking a peek at what we are building!
Explore the natural world
In Away, you play as a little sugar glider while embarking on a journey to save your family. Your adventures will take you through vast environments and immerse you in vibrant ecosystems full of unique species of plants, insects and animals.
The great advantage of being a sugar glider is that you can explore your surroundings any way you want. Whether you're climbing trees, sneaking through tall grass or gliding through canyons, the world of Away is yours to discover.
Follow Your Instinct
Away's ecosystems are full of life – there's always something going on around you, whether you realize it or not. But you will have to be vigilant, as the jungle is home to agile prey and hungry predators.
As you explore new environments, you can use the sugar glider's instinct to gain insight into the hidden life that surrounds you. Green means friend, red means enemy. Better to step carefully …
Fight or fly
Sitting near the end of the food chain, Sugar Gliders make up for their small size with great speed and agility. Useful for catching smaller insects, it is also useful for escaping the clutches of larger predators. But sometimes, your only choice is to face enemies head on.
Throughout the game, you will learn to develop Sugar Glider's fighting skills. This will be crucial for defending yourself against dangerous creatures like this scorpion, as you evade your attacks with timely moves and launch yourself while it is vulnerable.
Controlling other creatures
From small insects to large mammals, there are times in the game where you will have a chance to control other creatures. Experience the nature of new perspectives as you see the world through the eyes of a beetle, lizard, fox and more …
There is much to discover in the vast world of Away, and we can't wait to show you more. Coming to PS4 in early 2021, we look forward to taking you on the breathtaking journey of the Sugar Glider in the jungle.
In the meantime, we want to give you the chance to experience the lush surroundings of Away, so we have prepared some relaxing soundscapes of nature recorded straight from the game.
Immerse yourself in the sounds of a dense forest, the soft song of birds and the echo of a distant waterfall. Check out @awayseries on Twitter to get our soundscapes for free.
