Jumplight Odyssey. You’re Steering this Videogame Demo to Nostalgia.

In Jumplight Odyssey, you can build, expand, and customise the Catalina’s decks to create a personalised ship on your journey to the fabled Forever Star.

Jumplight Odyssey Title CardAvailable on Steam

League of Geeks has a free playable demo for Jumplight Odyssey, a roguelite colony sim inspired by genre staples and classic ‘70s sci-fi anime. The demo is available to download during the Steam Next Fest, now taking place (June 19-26, 2023), and this sneak peek is looking very retro! This latest project, from the studio behind the hugely successful indie hit, Armello, promises to be a hit.

Here, players start a career as captain of the SDF Catalina. As the overseer, you’re not only preparing to go explore strange new worlds, but also managing the crew of your star cruiser. Here, you can customise the ship’s decks with dozens of fully placeable objects, and do a lot of roster checks so everybody is happy. Like in Yamato (aka Star Blazers), you’re sometimes involved in making sure there’s no conflicts between crew, especially if they have a bridge position.

From the Press Release:

Manage a bustling starship with multiple decks inspired by Incredible Cross-Sections. Freely navigate between the Bridge, Promenade, Crew Quarters, and more, each with vital utilities to keep the ship running and crew happy.

  • Deploy pilots on resource-gathering away missions from the Flight Deck
  • Watch crew members socialise on the Promenade to deepen relationships
  • Fabricate supplies and maintain power on the Quarter deck
  • Harness Starlight, a vital resource allowing the Catalina to jump to new star systems.
  • Build, expand, and customise the Catalina’s decks to create a personalised ship on your journey to the fabled Forever Star.
  • Experiment with different layouts and technologies across multiple runs while keeping hope alive.

Jumplight Odyssey will have English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) language support. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions are planned following Early Access.
