Heartmachine, creators of the fantastic Hyper Light Drifter, recently announced their next upcoming title, Solar Ash Kingdom. While little is known about the new project so far if nothing it’s aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Unlike their previous title, it’s clear Heartmachine went for a fully 3D realized world this time around. Solar Ash Kingdom is stunning to look at. Beautiful pastel blues, purples, and pinks (among other colors) paint a vivid world full of alien fauna and creatures.
It’s hard to tell what type of game this is going to be just going off the trailer. Near the end we see, what is probably safe to assume, our protagonist gliding down this cloud-like formation. As the camera moves in on him, he skates by and produces a melee(?) type weapon and he launches towards a very Legend of Zelda style monster.
The surprising thing about this new title, which is being published by Annapurna Interactive, is that has been scooped up by the Epic Games store.
Heart Machine creator, Alex Preston, told IGN that the game would involve “incredible tech and key innovations” through Solar Ash Kingdom’s story, world, characters, and gameplay. Be sure to check out their awesome reveal trailer below.
