SOEDESCO, the publisher behind such titles as The Girl and the Robot, Adam’s Venture, and Ziggurat, has today released a teaser trailer for its upcoming title Elea.
Elea, an Early Access title released episodically on Steam is described as a “surreal sci-fi adventure” and has players taking the role of the eponymous character Elea on an expedition to find the mystery of her husband’s disappearance and the failure of the mission he was on to colonise an Earth-like planet. The game’s Steam page encourages players to explore “a story about our fragility as a species, about finding solace through surrender.” The first episode is expected to release later this month.

SOEDESCO is keen to tout the graphical quality, powered by the Unreal Engine 4, and its “rich, touching story” inspired by classic science-fiction writers. While not much about the general plot and gameplay has been revealed, early screenshots suggest a first-person, story-driven game, perhaps in the same vein as What Remains of Edith Finch.
