Kotaku’s Luke Plunkett lifts off with excitement for Jumplight Odyssey, a roguelite colony sim inspired by genre staples and classic 70s sci-fi anime from League of Geeks coming to Steam for PC in 2023.
“…Jumplight Odyssey, which might be of interest to anyone who enjoys management games, spaceships and/or old anime.”
“The game is big on building management, as you can see, as you’ll be responsible for pretty much every aspect of the crew’s lives while onboard. It’s grid-based construction system, research elements and budgeting of resources will be familiar to people who have played everything from Theme Park to Two Point Hospital.”
“– A delightful and charming starship dollhouse experience, filled with a living crew going about their lives; eating, sleeping, working, and surviving. Your crew interact with each other as brothers, sisters, lovers, friends and rivals. Hopefully a little less of the latter, but we’re not making any promises.
– Moods and ideas are contagious. On this floating melodrama, emergent relationships and incidents have a direct impact on the crew. Keep the Hope of your crew high, or suffer the consequences!”
