Know what would brighten your day? Smacking an angry green vegiesquid with a hard brown stick. Just imagine the ‘THWACK’ as your weapon collides with its puffy-cheeked face. Sends a shudder through your brain, doesn’t it? That’s the pleasure of taking part in the cartoony, fast-paced action in Away: Journey to the Unexpected, which has to be one of the most colourful – and delightful – FPS games ever made.
You play as a rabbit-eared kid who needs to save his village after an accident releases monsters into the world. Well, we say monsters, but as they’re drawn with such bright colours and animated in such a lively way, they’re wonderful to look at. There’s a dog that stands on two legs and sweats, a man with half his face turned into a lobster, and a tree man with hypnotic eyes – we just got lost staring into them, imagining a life with him in the woods…
Anyway, said rabbit-eared boy doesn’t go on his quest alone, as some of the monsters will help him. What makes this even cooler as that you can play as the monsters and must use their various abilities to beat back the dangers.
That’s the gist of the game anyway. It’s best that you have a look at Away: Journey to the Unexpected in action in the launch trailer below – it comes out on February 13th.
