Gorgeous, garish colours abound in the scene-setting debut trailer for Solar Ash Kingdom, the new project from Hyper Light Drifter developer Heart Machine.
The camera drifts across a series of landscapes in establishing shots: a ruined city and a detritus-lined beach, among others. The impression is of a world in decay, shot through with neon-laced blues, purples, and reds.
Towards the end of the teaser, a figure skates down through the clouds and appears to launch an assault on a giant eyeball-like creature.
The only synopsis that Heart Machine has released so far reads, “Journey through a surreal, vivid and highly stylized world filled with mystery, wild high-speed traversal, endearing characters, and massive enemy encounters.”
No platforms, release date, or even genre has been announced, though the appearance of the Epic Games Store logo at the end suggests that Solar Ash Kingdom may be another game to eschew an initial Steam release.
