Space exploration RPG The Long Journey Home is launching today on Nintendo Switch. A new trailer has been released to show the game in action.
Yes, Switch owners can finally set off on the game's adventure of danger and discovery, catching up with players who have already experienced it on other platforms. The Long Journey Home is a procedurally generated experience, with each playthrough only showing a small part of the game's universe; you’ll meet at least four of the game's many different alien races and it’s up to you to decide how to deal with them - peacefully, or through other means.
Here's a little PR to give you some more info:
When humanity’s first FTL jump goes wrong, it strands your group of explorers on the other side of the galaxy from Earth. With your spacecraft barely holding together and resources dwindling, it's up to you to choose your crew, explore the vastness of space, deal with alien races and find a way to return home.
Navigating your ship across an open galaxy won't be an easy challenge, thanks to the constant danger of being sucked into black holes, attacked by alien warships and more. Each decision counts: landing on strange planets might give you something with which to survive, but it might also damage your ship and endanger your crewmates. You'll need to carefully consider your options and make smart choices to have a hope of making it back home one day.
You'll find the game waiting for you today on the Switch eShop for £26.99.
