'Lilith Odyssey' Announced, Early Access In March - Screens & Trailer

by Rainier on Jan. 11, 2021 @ 3:28 p.m. PST

Lilith Odyssey takes the survival strategy gameplay of a migration adventure and puts it in an oddball, low-poly galaxy filled with alien cultures and animals, space businesses, and the freedom to explore more than 1000 unique worlds.

The Great Nacho Wars have ended. A corrupt galactic government saps life and resources from the many war-weary planets it controls. Your alien family risks everything across an open-world galactic odyssey to find a mysterious land of new beginnings. And they’re all aware of their simulated nature.

Purchase and outfit your space sailer for galactic travel. Chart a course along solar highways and navigate deadly space storms and raiding zones. Beam your family down to planets, moons and asteroids to harvest fuel and resources, but prepare to fend off strange creatures and hostile inhabitants. Explore an immersive galaxy brimming with oddball culture and trade.

Inspired by a nostalgia for Oregon Trail and the immersive depth of No Man’s Sky, Lilith Odyssey aims to bring a fresh take to the space adventure genre by simulating an alien family’s migration across the cosmos.

The story has a beginning and an end, but it’s the player’s leadership that defines the rest.

Lilith Odyssey will be available through Steam Early Access in March 2021.

"We want players to feel the challenge and mystery of a galactic journey. Flight sim mechanics are used to ride solar rays across vast distances, balanced with the strategy to manage supplies, defend against space- and ground-level threats, and explore opportunities for food, fuel and goods on alien worlds. Our hope is that the adventure captures the grand scale of long-distance space navigation and draws players into the civilization of a strange galaxy that comes with its own lingo, history and an in-game radio of original “pop hits” and ads. "

“We would like Lilith Odyssey to remain in early access for up to one year. But our full release timeframe largely depends on the magnitude of changes requested by the community. If you’re willing to offer feedback, we’re happy to take it. Seriously!

“The full version of Lilith Odyssey will contain new content, features, music, and (hopefully) a smoother and more polished experience. We want to deepen immersive elements by adding more creatures, space stations, spaceships, radio segments, and planet biomes. We’re also considering creating a story mode, real-time space combat, additional alien races, more weather variants, a questing system, and a lighter multiplayer feature that allows players to race against friends via the “ghosts” of their recorded journeys. But we want to let the community make the first calls here – what do you want to see in the final version?”

Key Features:

  • Outfit space sailing ships, chart a course along solar highways, and beam down to more than 1000 possible planets, moons and asteroids along the way. Each world is procedurally generated with its own blend of biomes, weather, animals, civilization (sometimes hostile) and topography.
  • The galaxy holds its own intrigue – various space businesses and star malls offer unique items and services while monuments hold clues into the galaxy’s history.
  • Researching survival technology, defenses and weaponry for planets and cosmic travel helps advance and protect player economies from ground-level and space raiders alike.
  • With a moment to rest, turn up the Grand Theft Auto-inspired radio station – the game’s original soundtrack that includes more than 80 minutes of “hit songs,” DJ segments and ads that are completely unique to the Lilith Odyssey universe. (You can get an Ad-Free upgrade to the radio if you want just the tunes.)

Lilith Odyssey is in development for PC (Steam), scheduled for 2022.
