The kid in Anew: The Distant Light hasn’t got it easy. They wake up on an alien moon some 20 light years from Earth, and with limited resources to use to survive. Apparently, this kid has to also carry out a mission of critical importance, too.
Little else is known about Anew right now except for what you can see in the screenshots and the following description: “Battle, puzzle, and journey through an exotic and dangerous world. Seek out game-changing equipment, upgrades, vehicles, and companions to expand your options for combat and exploration.”
It’s plain to see that it’s also a pretty-looking game, with the two creators at LA-based studio Resonator saying they’re aiming to portray a “beautifully painted, storybook world.”
Those two creators are Steve Copeland, who has worked as Software Engineer, Senior Designer, and Lead Designer on franchises including Command & Conquer, Star Wars, and Lord of the Rings across EA, BioWare, and Westwood Studios.
The other person working on Anew is Jeff Spoonhower who has worked as Senior Animator, Lead Cinematic Artist, and Senior Video Editor on Borderlands 2, BioShock 2, Saints Row 1-4, Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Syphon Filter, and many more.
It seems that Anew: The Distant Light will be worth keeping an eye on, then, and you can do so on its website.
