Praey for the Gods is an action-adventure set to debut on Steam Early Access on 31 January 2019. The developers No Matter Studios shared a launch trailer to celebrate the release and announced a console version currently in the works.
No Matter Studios have shared a launch trailer for their indie action-adventure Praey for the Gods which is hitting Steam Early Access after a successful funding campaign on Kickstarter. Since 2016, more than 14,738 backers funded the project which ultimately reached $501,252.
Praey for the Gods is heavily inspired by Shadow of Colossus and was made by only three Seattle-based developers. The story puts the players in the boots of a lone hero who needs to discover the mystery behind "a never-ending winter".
According to the developers, players will be able to climb on everything they can get their hands on, and that includes roaming bosses.
Praey for the Gods is described as a combination of multiple genres. From survival elements like hunting for food and lightning fires to RPG mechanics such as crafting, looting and dungeon exploring. On top of that, there's a gliding mechanic for easier travel around the map while exploration is heavily encouraged.
The launch trailer shows various enemy types, from smaller Nordic-like warriors to giant fur beasts. There's a tiny hint at weapon design and couple of underground locations with puzzles have also been teased. It's fair to say that these features look pretty neat in the trailer and one can only hope that they will be equally pleasant in the final release.
If you're wondering why the name sounds so weird, well - the game was originally dubbed Prey for the Gods, but Zenimax forced No Matter Studios to change the title due to its similarity with their Prey franchise.
Anyway, the name is now cool and Praey for the Gods is hitting Steam Early Access on 31 January 2019 with a console version coming later this year. No Matter Studios said that everything they've promised to their Kickstarter backers has been successfully implemented and the plan is to add more content and further polish their creation.
