As well as Gaia's goal to rescue each of the animals' souls and bring them back to Mother's Ark, you'll get to explore a "vast, surrealistic world" and play a "story of contrasts" as you look at a world "decimated by human impact".

"Explore the corners of a surrealistic post-human world to give life on Earth a second chance in this touching story about sacrifice and hope Play as Gaia, the Spirit of Life, and navigate stunning platforming environments in an abstract world to salvage the souls of extinct animals," teases the game's description.

"Revive these creatures after learning their final fate: the last whale harpooned, the final eagle caged, the last deer hunted down, and more, while you survive encounters with dangerous, oil-covered Devourers that roam the wasteland in search of remaining life. In this emotional journey from the creators of the critically acclaimed Arise: A Simple Story, you alone can restore life to the planet."
