Jumplight Odyssey, the spacefaring colony sim launches into Steam Early Access in August

From Press Release:

MELBOURNE – July 27, 2023 – League of Geeks, developers of acclaimed indie strategy title Armello and upcoming Solium Infernum, announced today that Jumplight Odyssey is set to release on PC via Steam Early Access on August 21. The colony sim set in space and inspired by genre staples and classic ‘70s sci-fi anime is celebrating the announcement of its release date with a new trailer. Jumplight Odyssey’s demo was one of the most-played demos during the June 2023 Steam Next Fest, and is still available for download.

Jumplight Odyssey takes players on a unique spaceship adventure starring Princess Euphora, commander of the SDF Catalina. Join her and navigate across star systems, trying to escape from Admiral Voltan and the dangerous Zutopans, while searching for the fabled Forever Star—a mythical new home far across the galaxy.

Players will manage resources, define their leadership style, and make critical decisions to maintain hope aboard the SDF Catalina. Assign tasks to crew members across various divisions, such as Science, Engineering, Combat, and Supply. Dispatch pilots to gather resources, rescue new members to expand the crew, and defend the spaceship against surprise Zutopan ambushes as they relentlessly pursue you across the galaxy.

Delve into a vibrant space society within the SDF Catalina, witness emergent stories, and help deepen relationships among the crew. Customize and expand the Catalina’s decks and experiment with different layouts inspired by Incredible Cross Sections. Use Starlight, a crucial resource that enables the Catalina to jump to new star systems to evade the relentless pursuit of the Zutopans.

Jumplight Odyssey will be available on Steam Early Access from August 21, 2023, with English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) language support. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions are planned to release following Early Access.
