Regard has released the video that you can watch above to provide an overview of the game. In brief, it’s set in a futuristic Greek Odyssey, and has you playing as Penelope as she searches the galaxy for Ulysses.
You can explore planets in any order, and each of them have unique, races, bosses, and new permanent abilities for your spaceship. It also has an energy system so that using the ship’s weapons is beneficial but comes at the heavy risk of pushing you close to death.
You can find out more about The Next Penelope in our interview with Regard. You can also check out the game’s website and Steam page. As well as Windows, Mac, and Linux, The Next Penelope will be coming to Wii U this year, and perhaps other consoles too.
