From Press Release:
MELBOURNE – August 21, 2023 – League of Geeks, developers of acclaimed strategy title Armello and upcoming Solium Infernum, have released Jumplight Odyssey in Early Access via Steam today with a launch discount of 15% for one week (price before discount USD$29.99, £24.99 GBP, €28.99). The roguelite colony sim set in space and inspired by genre staples and classic ‘70s sci-fi anime has released a new trailer to celebrate the launch.
Jumplight Odyssey takes players on a unique starship adventure starring Princess Euphora, captain of the SDF Catalina. Players can navigate across star systems, as they try to escape from Admiral Voltan and the dangerous Zutopans, in search of the fabled Forever Star—a mythical new home far across the galaxy.
Jumplight Odyssey’s Early Access offers a first glimpse into this ambitious colony sim, kickstarting Princess Euphora’s epic escape across the galaxy. Manage resources, define your leadership style, and make critical decisions as captain in order to keep Hope alive aboard the SDF Catalina. Players can customize and upgrade the various decks of the Catalina, experimenting with different layouts in a mode of navigation brand new to the genre and inspired by the Incredible Cross Sections series of books.
Early Access also offers players the ability to create their own Odysseys, allowing fearless captains to run playthroughs time and time again, defining core aspects such as playstyle starting resources, ship state, crew, and length. Players can even define their playstyle, including a Chill mode, Jumplight Odyssey’s cozy game experience, where the Zutopan Armada will never pursue you, or Hectic, where their pursuit is relentless and ruthless.
League of Geeks were early pioneers of Early Access in 2015, with the release of their debut hit Armello. In similar fashion, Jumplight Odyssey’s Early Access will receive a whole host of exciting themed feature and content updates providing new stories, buildables, biomes and more. The first major update will be titled ‘A Dangerous Galaxy!’ and will be free to all players. It is expected to launch within the first two months of release.
“We have invested our hearts and souls into Jumplight Odyssey, a dream game where we attempt to capture the very essence of the beloved 70’s sci-fi anime shows we grew up with. Our vision for Jumplight Odyssey is a colony sim set in the context of a Saturday Morning Cartoon grand adventure. The launch into Early Access marks the beginning of our shared adventure – our vision of this game coming to life with the help of our incredible players”,” said Trent Kusters, Co-Founder and Studio Director of League of Geeks. “Now is the best time to journey to the Forever Star and help shape the future of this game with us!!”
Jumplight Odyssey is available on Steam Early Access now, with English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) language support.
