Voyage is being billed as a side-scrolling casual adventure, but it seems to be much more than a surface-level adventure. You can read what Jon Krebs thought of it on PC when it was first released in 2021 It follows, “ two survivors who find themselves on an unknown planet. Their travels, whether you decide to play by yourself or cooperatively, will consist of many obstacles that halt and hinder their ability to progress forward. Throughout their journey they will unravel a mystery of the past.” What caught my eye was that Voyage is telling three stories at once. The gameplay, statue scenes, and murals all tell a separate story.
Voyage can be played either single-player or cooperatively with someone else. If you’re going solo, one of the two protagonists in the game acts as an AI companion, giving off the same feel as if you were playing with someone else. You can choose which of the two characters to control at any given time, as you interact with objects, climb together, and even hug.
Voyage will release on the 12th August for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Microsoft Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.
