Emotive Adventure Game Sea of Solitude Is Coming Out In July

Get lost in your feelings in a flooded city this summer.

The vast, deep waters of Sea of Solitude will welcome all sailors this summer. The dream-like art and haunting monsters of the deep will come to PC (via Origin), Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on July 5.

We haven't seen too much of Sea of Solitude since its debut at the EA Play 2018 press conference, where a brief but memorable trailer caught our collective eye. The style developer Jo-Mei Games has crafted is gorgeous and intriguing, as are little hints towards themes of inner conflict and how scary deep water is.

According to the game's store page on EA's website, you'll control protagonist Kay as she "explores her own loneliness and attempts to save her loved ones from theirs." Her own emotions have bubbled up to the surface, turning her into a wolf-like girl with red eyes, making me wonder what the rest of the city's population looks like.

The sea has flooded the city around Kay, sinking streets to the bottom of the ocean. Despite that, there are on-foot segments as well as seafaring sections. Beyond exploring, there are puzzles and "lovely and terrifying monsters." Seems like a game that would appeal to those who dig the more introspective experiences in games nowadays, similar to artsy platformer Gris.

Sea of Solitude will hit digital storefronts July 5 for $19.99. To catch this year's EA Play conference for any new gems they might announce, be sure to check out our guide to all things in or around E3 2019.
