Furi was a game all about intense boss fights from developer The Game Bakers. Their next game, Haven, is basically nothing like that aside from having real-time combat and demanding tactical timing. This is an adventure and a love story between the protagonists, handled with maturity and humor. Along those lines, the game may be played alone or in two-player co-op, and the second player can drop in or drop out at will. And to remind us that Haven exists, The Game Bakers has shared the opening movie of the game on YouTube.
And wow, it is equal parts trippy and gorgeous.
The opening movie was produced by Yapiko Animation and Yukio Takatsu. It’s fair to say they hit it out of the park.
Haven will release for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in 2020, but a precise release date has not been pinned down yet. Stay tuned for updates on this game if you, uh, love a good love story.
And for deeper insight into this charming upcoming title, check out The Escapist’s interview with The Game Bakers about Haven from last August. It touches on assorted topics, from inspirations to nuts and bolts, such as the game probably being somewhere between six and 10 hours long.
