Benjamin Rivers is known for his horror game, Home, but now he’s taking a very different approach to storytelling in his new game, Alone With You.
The game is described as a sci-fi romance exploration game, in which you control a faceless protagonist who controls a ship on a mysterious planet, with only your ship’s artificial intelligence to keep you company. Think of it as Her (with Joaquin Phoenix) meets … well, any work of science fiction in which you’re eerily stranded, alone, in space. You’ll slowly develop a unique relationship with the A.I., and since the A.I. has no gender, theoretically the protagonist is left ambiguous as well.
Check out the teaser trailer below:
While not much else was revealed, we’re being told that a full reveal, along with a release date, is coming at the annual Game Developers Conference next week.
