Sea of Solitude is a Dark-Yet-Bright Game About Exploring Emotions

Sea of Solitude has just one question: Who are you?

EA introduced an action-adventure game called Sea of Solitude at its E3 2018 press conference. It's an intriguing journey about a girl named Kay who has to manage her dark emotions—and you have to help her, of course.

Sea of Solitude combines dark, shadowy foregrounds with bright, watery backgrounds. The game's meant to help people explore their own emotions through Kay, whose own loneliness and frustration have bubbled up to her surface and turned her into a monstrous wolf-girl with glowing red eyes.

Sea of Solitude aims to deliver a fun experience, but it also offers people the chance to dig deep into themselves and learn how to handle their darker half—and how to embrace their joy. We'll have more info on this seeming gem as it becomes available. In the meantime, visit our E3 2018 guide for everything you need to know about the show.
