No Matter Studios has announced that its Shadow of the Colossus-inspired "Praey for the Gods" will be launching into Steam early access at 9:00 am Pacific / 12:00 pm Eastern today. The game centers on a lone hero "sent to the edge of a dying world to discover the mystery behind a never-ending winter". Players will find massive beasts to scale and defeat as they glide, swim or climb through the game world.
Explore, Craft, and Survive
You'll arrive on a frozen island with only the clothes on your back -- it's up to you to survive. Make fires, hunt for food, and find the equipment you need to make it through an eternal winter. Nature isn't the only danger, so craft weapons, defeat minions for better gear, and venture into long forgotten caves to discover their secrets. Triumphing over these trials will prepare you for the impossible odds that wait.
Make Your Path
Praey for the Gods is a non-linear game where you choose who you battle and how. The large beasts can be attempted in any order allowing you to set the course.
Unravel the Mystery
Why won't the winter stop? Why has no one returned? Cryptic paintings left behind allude to a story once thought forgotten. To restore balance and reclaim the land, you you will be faced with questions that not even the gods know the answer to.
A Beautifully Frigid World
Explore a landscape of unending winter framed by snow-capped peaks and crawling fog. The remnants of an ancient civilization lie before you, but don't let awe turn into carelessness -- snow storms can crop up at any moment and bury you in a blizzard. Luckily, you can leave footprints in the snow and follow your footsteps back if you are lost.
