Olija Makes Its Debut During The Devolver Direct Event

During the Devolver Direct livestream, Skeleton crew and Devlover Digital debuted a new game to check out called Olija. As you might suspect, the game kind of came out of nowhere as the event itself is there to make fun of the industry as a whole and give little regard to anyone who takes it seriously. So to suddenly see a real trailer pop up very randomly in the middle of what was a rant on the way everything has worked in a year without E3 was an awesome experience. The game itself is about Faraday's quest, as you play as a shipwrecked man who is trapped in the country of Terraphage, which is filled with mystery and intrigue. All you have with you is a legendary harpoon, as you attempt to find a way off the island and return home. This action-adventure game developed by Skeleton Crew will be released for PC and Nintendo Switch sometime in the Fall of 2020. For now, enjoy the trailer!
