Daedalic Entertainment’s space exploration RPG The Long Journey Home releases today on Nintendo Switch. Nintendo players can finally join the award-winning game’s rag-tag crew on an adventure of danger and discovery, already available for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
When humanity’s first FTL jump goes wrong, it strands your group of explorers on the other side of the galaxy from Earth. With your spacecraft barely holding together and resources dwindling, it’s up to you to choose your crew, explore the vastness of space, deal with alien races and find a way to return home.
In this procedurally generated experience, each playthrough is unique and only shows you a small part of The Long Journey Home universe. In any playthrough, you’ll meet at least four different alien races out of a large pool of possible races in various combinations, and it’s up to you to decide how to deal with them – peacefully or through other means.
Navigating your ship across an open galaxy won’t be an easy challenge, thanks to the constant danger of being sucked into black holes, attacked by alien warships and more. Each decision counts: landing on strange planets might give you something with which to survive, but it might also damage your ship and endanger your crewmates. You’ll need to carefully consider your options and make smart choices to have a hope of making it back home one day.
