Codex collaborator Bubbles was pretty upset with what he saw from Daedalic Entertainment when he attended their presentations at Gamescom last August. But there was one game of theirs that he did approve of, a space exploration game called Project Daedalus: The Long Journey Home that appeared to be a true love letter to the 1992 classic Star Control 2. In the months that passed, we heard little about the game, but last month it resurfaced at Daedalic's "Daedalic Days" event in Hamburg, now called simply The Long Journey Home and rebranded as a "Space Exploration RPG" (which means I get to post news about it now). The Long Journey Home is also at GDC this week, and for this larger event Daedalic have put together a teaser trailer and unveiled a fancy new website. The press release they sent out has details:

GDC 2016 goes galactic! Daedalic Entertainment Studio West has some news and announcements for their Space Exploration RPG The Long Journey Home in store for you.

There'll be brand new gameplay impressions as well as a new website: www.tljhgame.com , which will feature all news regarding The Long Journey Home. Apart from visual impressions, various game features will be introduced as well.

The Long Journey Home takes players to the other side of the galaxy, plunging them into both the wonders and dangers of deep space. Every decision the player makes has consequences and will influence how the game unfolds. To get the space ship’s crew home to Earth safely, finesse and skill are needed. It is always a tough call to decide if it is time to pick a fight or handle matters with diplomacy…

The Long Journey Home is due for release in the second half of 2016 for PC, Mac, Linux and consoles.

About The Long Journey Home:

The Long Journey Home is a Space Exploration RPG that combines the best of classic space adventures like Starflight and Star Control II with the replayability of modern roguelikes, in a procedurally generated, endlessly surprising living universe inspired by beloved modern Science Fiction shows like Farscape and Firefly.

Your goal: to find the way back to Earth. An accident during humanity’s first jump drive test has catapulted you and your crew to the other side of the galaxy, and the only way home is through. Lead your crew as you explore new worlds in search of allies and support. Face searing storms and deadly gravity as you plunder alien worlds for their secrets and technology. Befriend alien races and earn their trust. Keep your people alive.

Do whatever it takes to get home.

  • Explore a living, procedurally generated galaxy
  • Guide your crew through complex quests and moral dilemmas
  • Uncover ancient secrets in the ruins of distant worlds
  • Fight for survival in a dangerous universe
  • Chart your own course - every game, a new journey

Some people may be interested to know that Daedalic have hired Richard Cobbett, mainstream gaming journalism's premier authority™ on oldschool RPGs, to write for the game. He appears to be quite excited about it. You can learn more about The Long Journey Home in this preview over at Gamepressure.
