If you’re the type of person that gets a small buzz out of watching 2001: A Space Odyssey or Interstellar, then you’re definitely going to want to check out Last Voyage. This multi-chapter cinematic trip from Semidome Inc. utilizes calming, borderline psychedelic images to carry you through its weird world.
It’s hard to nail down precisely what Last Voyage is all about. Even its trailer doesn’t surrender much information, though it’s certainly pretty to watch (albeit a bit trippy to take in if you’re feeling tired). There are grand shapes and fast-moving portals, all accompanied by a symphony of strings.
Last Voyage’s five chapters reportedly form a seamless, continuous narrative. But what message does that narrative deliver? It might be best to consult Semidome itself for the answers:
“Last Voyage is a game about space that is not about spaceships but rather what lies beyond human culture and technology. A game where you don’t master a single task but rather explore a range of concepts. As a result, the levels are sometimes mysterious, and other times very direct. Sometimes completely still, and other times moving at the speed of light. This change of pace, which is often explored in books and movies, has been largely ignored in games.”
We should know everything about Last Voyage when it comes to iOS on April 2. Presumably we’ll learn everything there is to know about the universe on that date, too.
