AWAY: Journey to the Unexpected is a crazy, colorful first-person adventure game, entirely produced by a two-person team, a love letter to Japanese animation, published by Plug-in Digital. AWAY Journey to the Unexpected has finally arrived on mobile devices and starting from today, it’s available for all the iOS users.
The inviting atmosphere of its charming little 3D world populated by 2D characters truly gives this game a unique visual and aesthetic. The anime-themed soundtrack composed by Kazuhiko Naruse and sung by Aya Majiro is as every bit inspiring an exciting, making it perfect for a topsy-turvy game like this. It combines action, negotiation, and rogue-lite elements to provide a feel-good experience.
AWAY comes as a short 3-5 hours journey mixing action, whacky discussions, and some rogue-lite elements to the mix. Round up a band of 8 quirky characters to unravel the funny story, with each having personalized and unique abilities.
You are a kid, in his room and suddenly, there’s an explosion. Only armed with just a stick you must repeal the monsters that threaten your world that, unleashed by a rather incompetent company called Labiworks. Use your power of friendship as you make your way through this peril and assemble your whack team; from the mine-throwing angry tree to the missile launching robot or the fireballing yet short-sighted sorcerer. While you investigate about your missing parents and the bizarre events happening, find all the goofy allies you can get to help you survive. Befriend and play a wide array of peculiar characters, see what they see, through the FPS style whenever you summon them.
AWAY Journey to the Unexpected is available on the App Store as a premium purchase at $6.99USD. The game requires users to have iOS 13 or later, and it is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. It is available in English, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
