Lost At Sea, the latest game from Studio Fizbin (creator of The Inner World and Minute of Islands), is a first-person narrative adventure game set to release for PC and next-gen consoles on July 15th. This game tells the story of Anna, a woman who has come to find herself alone in the later stages of her life. Already, it sounds like this is going to be a game that aims to strike a deep emotional chord with its players. Anna ends up on a beautiful tropical island with no clue as to how she got there. Somehow, though, it seems familiar to her, and she begins exploring it. This is where players will take control, exploring and reliving memories of Anna’s past. There will be happy ones, there will be sad ones, and these memories will be reconstructed by the player through various minigames, solving puzzles, and by discovering objects from Anna’s life.
Each biome on this mysterious island represents a different phase of Anna’s life, and all the time Anna’s fears made manifest will be chasing her down.
Lost At Sea is a game about universal themes like life and death, coming to terms with your past and family. Set on a beautiful island, this game will force you to face your fears and take stock of your life through imaginative minigames and a relatable story. What are the most important moments of your life, and how do you want to live it?
With Lost At Sea, the developers are taking a whole new direction: psychological aspects, first-person gameplay, free exploration and, for the first time ever in their games, an omnipresent feeling of imminent danger.
- A personal story: Experience moments from someone’s life first-hand and help the main character relive and re-assess them to move on
- Island of the mind: Explore the different phases of life, each of them with their own beautiful biome on the island
- Beautiful memories: Gorgeous illustrations capture the essence of the most important moments in Anna’s life, while elaborate sound design brings her deepest fears to life
- Face your fears: Did I make the right choices? Did I fail my loved ones? As Anna, face all fears head-on, or walk away from them until you’re ready
- Game to remember: Unlock memories with specifically designed minigames and puzzles that capture these memories in unique gameplay
