Away is a colorful first person adventure game that combines action and negotiation mixed in a rogue-lite environment!

Away: Journey to the Unexpected is a feel-good first person adventure game that combines action, negotiation and rogue-lite elements, all rendered beautifully in a distinctive anime-inspired style.

In Away, you’re not a fighter or a hero, but you are great at making kick-ass friends! Many of the colourful characters you meet in game, from robotic cowboy bounty hunters to bizarre space oddities, can be recruited to fight alongside you - it’s up to you to convince them to join the team!

Away is the creation of renowned French developer Aurélien Regard, working alongside Rayman level designer Jean-Matthieu Gennisson.

Developer Aurélien Regard and publisher Playdius announced that Away: Journey to the Unexpected will be launching on PC on 13th February 2019.

For European fans, pre-ordering Away on the PlayStation Store in Europe will get them the serene and surrealist first-person explorer  Shape of the World for free. For PC players, preordering the game on GoG, will get them early access to Away over a week ahead of the PC launch, starting February 5th.

Key Features:

  • Colourful and unique visuals created by renowned artist and developer Aurélien Regard (The Next Penelope)

  • A first person adventure with fast-paced combat and rogue-lite elements
  • A vast cast of quirky characters to meet, convince and recruit to fight for you
