Simogo has announced its latest game: it's called The Sailor's Dream, and it'll be out late 2014 on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
If you're not in the know as to who Simogo is, it's the developer of critically acclaimed iOS releases Year Walk and DEVICE 6, as well as Beat Sneak Bandit, Bumpy Road, and Kosmo Spin. We're therefore setting our bar of expectation pretty high on this one, especially after having seen the new trailer.
The game is apparently "a challenge-free experience in which you explore a non-linear story through words, music, sounds and illustrations". The team's blog expands on this further;
"In some ways The Sailor’s Dream is the culmination of ideas and concepts we’ve had over the past years and projects, and as such it is an exploration of how to tell a story in a new and unique way.
"It also shares some DNA with Year Walk and DEVICE 6 when it comes to navigation and interactions, the concept of the players piecing together a bigger story from smaller pieces, and just as previous efforts it does include quite a lot of written text".
It's safe to say that we're more than a little intrigued, we'll have more coverage of The Sailor's Dream in the coming months.
