Kova is a metroidvania style side-scrolling action RPG set in the distant future. In this future humans have colonised many planets across a number of galaxies and are at the height of their technological advancement.
Players will play as Kova Rimor, a space mercenary who, while on her way to her next job, crash lands on an icy planet. She discovers a strange beacon which sets into motion a deep mystery which aims to answer the question, “Why have humans been alone in the universe?”
The game will feature side quests to complete, factions to side with and upgrades to collect. Kova was born out of a love of sci-fi narratives which shines through in the style and atmosphere of the game. Crafting is a big part of the game as players can build upgrades and ammo as well as other items to give them the edge needed to traverse the array of hostile environments.
Kova is set to release Q4 this year on PC with Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One versions coming in 2018. Watch the announcement trailer below.
