The Game Bakers have given us our first look at their new game, Haven, in action.
“It’s purposefully a very different experience from Furi. But as with Furi, we tried to make a game that you have never experienced before,” continues Thoa.
“The story of a couple fighting for their freedom, an established relationship: what love looks like when you’ve moved past the early seduction phase, when you can be your true self with one another… I don’t think that’s been done much in video games.”
Players will experience a story-rich adventure that’s described as a “lovechild of Journey meets Persona,” on which they’ll help Yu and Kay through everyday life and challenges.
An “innovative” combat system allows players to control both characters at once using tactics and timing. You can briefly see how combat works in the trailer above, with successful encounters seeming to relieve the local fauna of some sort of crystal that appears to be turning them aggressive.
Haven is said to be “a solo game at its core,” but will support local co-op with a second player able to jump into the action, sharing in exploration and progression.
Haven is out sometime next year and will be available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Whilst there’s no mention of an Xbox One version, developers The Game Bakers have stated that the complete platform plan is “not final.”
