hi i'm honorada
a programmer on away the survival series
and i'm sebastian co-founder and lead
developer on the way
today we're excited to give you a sneak
peek at what we've been working on for
the past four years
inspired by nature documentaries away is
an adventure game where you play as a
tiny sugar glider
the story is set in a distant future
where nature has reclaimed the planet
and with danger looming you will have to
find safe refuge for you and your family
your journey will take you through
stunning environments each with their
own vibrant ecosystem
today we'll be giving you a glimpse at
what lies deep within the waste forest
after being wounded by one of away's
predators the sugar gliders mother and
sister are now healing
we've decided to look around for
something that could help them recover
there's a beacon over there that looks
promising let's head over there and see
what we can find poisonous plant is a
member of the solana more
nightshade family a single prick of its
can cause serious injury to an animals
throughout the game always narrator
helps guide us through our surrounding
and narrates our journey into the wild
it's like being in our own personal
nature documentary
there is always something going on
around us whether we notice it or not so
we have to stay very vigilant
one way to do this is to tap into the
sugar glider's instinct it allows us to
see through the environment
and reveals the animals and insects that
surround us
we can see a few red animals those are
enemies that we want to avoid
but there are also a few green ones
which indicate creatures that we can eat
to replenish our health
one of the best things about being a
sugar glider is that you can explore
your environment
in any way you want from the ground or
from the trees
and of course if we get high enough we
can also glide through the air
gliding takes a lot of energy so if we
want to keep gliding we'll have to look
some food to recharge a bit
there's a beetle on that other branch
that looks like it could do the trick
this is where the verticalities of a
waze environment comes into play
we can use our height advantage to
easily catch our price
that beetle never saw us coming
okay now that we've eaten we should have
enough energy for some longer lights

i think i just spotted a lizard let's
see if we can catch it
these lizards they tend to be quite fast
and they get scared
easily we'll have to sneak up on this
one through the grass
so it doesn't notice us ugh it spotted
time for a chase
some animals are easier to catch in
others we have to choose our prey very
this looks like some sort of bunker
there's light coming from the inside but
the opening is too small for the sugar
glider we
might be able to get in if we were a
little bit smaller in moments like this
we can use our special ability to
possess other animals
if we can find a smaller insect to
possess we might be able to fit through
this crack
and see what's inside to unlock this
ability we need to fill up our sugar
glider's possess bar
we can do this by eating a few blue
once the bar is completely full the
sugar glider starts glowing
let's see if we can find a small insect
to possess
how about this little bug looks like it
could be small enough to enter the
and it fits
let's see what we can find in here
is this some sort of computer
security camera footage it looks like
someone has been
watching the animals this computer is
one of many items scattered around a way
that will help us piece together what's
happening to our world
but these items are usually hidden off
the main path so we'll have to explore a
little bit more to find the others
it doesn't look like there's anything in
here that's going to help us heal our

Watch video from 06:00 - 9:00

we'll have to look somewhere else
it's getting close to sunset let's head
back to our mother and sister before it
gets too dark
who knows what kind of creatures might
come out at night
thanks for watching we hope you enjoyed
our sneak peek at the breathtaking world
of away the survival series
we're happy to announce that away will
be releasing on pc and ps4 in early 2021
until then you can wish list away on
where we've got a special gift waiting
for you i don't want to spoil too much
so see you there

The devs walk us through seven minutes of gameplay in Away: The Survival Series. Inspired by nature documentaries, Away puts you in the adorable body of a ...

  1. Reminds me of maneater but without the Shark obviously. I like how this game is but can't get it because i don't want to play as that animal. Imagine a lion rpg where you start as a pup like maneater and able to explore the safari and build your pride and dominate others

  2. Alright, am I the only one seeing these naughty comments that are named "I WANT S*X CLICK ON PIC" on other people's comments? Report them when you see them cause they are commenting on a video that has NOTHING to do with s*x…
