Makers of "The Ball" Return with New Title, The Solus Project

By Published January 22, 2016 at 2:33 pm

Steam has long been rife with first-person survival -- from DayZ to Rust to The Forest to, to, to -- there’s enough to fill the biggest house voxels can build. To cut through the melange, Teotl Studios gave upcoming title “The Solus Project” a twist: it’s linear, not open-world. The plot to The Solus Project will be familiar to anyone who's been watching sci-fi movies over the last couple years. The protagonist is on a ship carrying the last remnants of humankind, eventually downed when the ship crash-lands on an alien planet. The protagonist is the only surviving crewmember of the crash and, of course, it’s up to them save what’s left of the human race.

Swedish developers, Teotl Studios drew some attention for their debut release -- The Ball. The Ball was a first-person puzzle-exploration game that focused on controlling a giant ball to solve puzzles and crush the undead. The Ball was well received when it was released, including by us here at GN, raising the stakes for Teotl’s first first-person game since.

You can check out the trailer released on publisher GRIP Digitial’s youtube channel here:

In the trailer, we can already see the protagonist exploring the alien environment with a tricorder, the Staff of Ra and, most familiar to many gamers, a crowbar.

Currently, The Solus Project has no official release date, but early access to the game should be expected in early February through Steam.
