Belgian Indie game developers Pajama Llama has today confirmed the Early Access launch date of their town-builder title Flotsam â€“ alongside releasing a brand-new gameplay trailer.
The game which is all about a floating town made of garbage is planned to launch into Early Access on September 26, with Gamescom attendees getting hands on with the latest development build. The game will be shown at the Indie Arena Booth in hall 10.2.
Speaking alongside the announcement Juda-Ben Gordier, co-founder at Pajama Llama, had this to say:
“Flotsam’s theme originated from an animation project one of our founders created, about people living in a flooded world. We took this spark and created a prototype, which eventually grew to become Flotsam. We fell in love with the combination of the setting and gameplay. We all had an urge to create the game, so we did.”
Here is the brand new gameplay trailer for Flotsam.
Josh Larson, Chief Business Officer at Kongregate [the game publisher], added this: â€œWe’re beyond excited to be so close to getting Flotsam out into the wild. From the very beginning we’ve been captivated by the game’s whimsical charm set on top of a post-apocalyptic world, and are incredibly impressed by the work that Pajama Llama has done to really make an outstanding game.â€
Hereâ€™s how Pajama Llama describe Flotsam:
In Flotsam, players take on the role of a group of survivors in a colourful 2D post-apocalyptic water-world, where the only form of civilization is found on floating garbage towns. Salvaging ocean junk, the game invites players to create their own intricate towns by recycling trash, and brave the dangers of the vast sea. Players can guide their villagers through obstacles of recycled garbage, wet ruins, polluted reefs and sunken wrecks while rescued Seagulls and Dolphins will aid them in their quest to make ends meet in this flooded world.
