Stunning Sci-fi Adventure Somerville Debuts On PlayStation On August 31st
Thunderful and JUMPSHIP are pleased to announce that their mysterious sci-fi adventure, Somerville, is coming to PlayStation on August 31st. In this narrative sci-fi adventure, you step into a world hit by an otherworldly invasion. Discover the intimate repercussions of large scale conflict as you explore a rich and atmospheric world transformed by catastrophe on your way to making your family whole again. This will be JUMPSHIP’s first release since being acquired by Thunderful in November 2022.
Described as “the most beautiful game I’ve ever played” by VG247 and “a disconcerting masterpiece” by The Gamer, Somerville challenges you with solving a series of puzzles in an altered landscape affected by a strange alien sediment. With your protagonist discovering the ability to manipulate it in a variety of ways, Somerville keeps new ideas coming over the course of its atmospheric journey.
s you explore Jumpship Studio’s Somerville, the devastation left behind by the invading alien force and those who resisted will tell its own story without a word being spoken. The alien lifeforms from which you must flee or hide on this adventure might just provide clues to delve even deeper into the true meaning of this conflict and unlock multiple endings that help reveal the true significance of the strange events to which you bear witness.
“Since releasing Somerville on PC and Xbox last year, we’ve been hard at work on making improvements to our debut title,” said JUMPSHIP Studio Director Claire Boissiere. “We’re thrilled to now be able to release the best version of Somerville yet on PlayStation, along with PlayStation exclusive features like haptic feedback and use of the DualSense 5 Lightbar to reflect the powers you are using in game.”
