Anew: The Distant Light is a single-player, open-world action and adventure game that will appeal to fans of platforming, combat, exploration, and visual storytelling. In game, you are a child with limited resources, waking up on a distant alien moon, twenty light years from Earth. You must carry out a mission of critical importance and you have several mysteries to solve. Make your way through a dangerous alien world. Seek out game-changing equipment, upgrades, and vehicles to expand your options for combat and exploration.
Anew is being created by veteran developers Steve Copeland and Jeff Spoonhower, with an original soundtrack by Wilbert Roget II. You may be familiar with our work on the Bioshock, Borderlands, Star Wars, Uncharted, Lord of the Rings, and Saints Row franchises, among others.
We are both working full time on this independently developed game, funded only by our own personal savings and your generous support. The game is currently in pre-alpha, is nearing feature-complete, and is already a lot of fun (as confirmed by gamers at trade shows).
Your pledges will go a long way towards completing Anew ahead of schedule, and to an even higher quality. For more information about the game and our credentials, and to read continued updates on the project, please check out our full Kickstarter campaign, which was successfully funded on March 19, 2017.
Xbox One and Playstation 4 ports will follow desktop releases. Nintendo Switch research and development is pending.
