UPDATE 10/6/22: Following its unveiling during last night's Day of the Devs showcase, Monument Valley developer ustwo has shared some first gameplay of its upcoming turn-based action title Desta: The Memories Between.
Desta follows the adventures of its titular hero after they return home following the death of their father. Relationships with their friends and family have broken down in the time since their last visit, but help is at hand in the form of a magical old ball that sends them to a world between worlds when they fall asleep.
A first look at Desta's wonderfully dreamy action was showcased this evening as part of Netflix's game-focused Geeked Week presentation. The title is set to arrive on mobile in an exclusive partnership with the streaming service later this year, with a PC and console release to follow.
ORIGINAL STORY 9/6/22: The next game from ustwo games is turn-based action title Desta: The Memories Between.
Revealed at the Summer Game Fest, the Monument Valley developer promises this will be its "deepest, most ambitious and most replayable title" yet.
The game is set for release later this year on mobile in partnership with Netflix, with a PC and console release planned for a later date.
As the titular Desta, players will explore dreamlike worlds with turn-based, roguelike gameplay inspired by the likes of Hades and Into the Breach.
Its world, meanwhile, is influenced by Inception, exploring themes of memory and self-reflection.
"All the characters you meet in the game helped Desta become who they are - there's a lot about loss and finding yourself, which are themes that I'm sure we can all relate to. We hope players enjoy exploring Desta's dream worlds, and the reawakening that follows," said Danny Gray, ustwo games chief creative officer.
Meanwhile, ustwo is also releasing the Monument Valley series on PC as the Panoramic Collection.
