During EA Play 2018, we were introduced to German indie studio Jo-Mei, who is working with EA under their EA Originals label. Jo-Mei’s Creative Director, Cornelia Geppert, introduced her studio’s game, Sea of Solitude. Sea of Solitude is coming early 2019 to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Sea of Solitude is a third person action game starring a young woman named Kay. Kay has transformed into a monstrous version of herself due to overwhelming loneliness. The game touches on emotional and mental themes as she navigates her flooded world, battling and evading other monsters, and hopefully saving them and herself.
The game is a personal creative project from Geppert, who wrote and designed it during a dark time in her life. You can watch her presentation about halfway through the EA Play 2018 video, around 1:34:00.
Sea of Solitude is the latest indie game to be published by EA through their EA Originals brand. Earlier this year EA Originals released mature co-op action game A Way Out as well as action-platformer Fe. A sequel to Unravel, Unravel Two, was just announced and released by EA Originals today, during the EA Play 2018 conference.
Sea of Solitude is due early 2019. It’ll be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
