505 Games will be making Oddyssey: Your Space, Your Way, an indie sci-fi game available soon on Steam. The title has been developed by, a relatively new indie studio, Weird Fish.

From the promotional materials I have seen, Oddyssey is for you if you’re into comedic games with aliens, space exploration, construction, action, and more. The upcoming indie title will take you through deep space cartoon sandboxes featuring light-hearted humor and a classic animated visual style. It includes single-player and co-op multiplayer options.

The official description reads:

Inhabiting a small support ship aptly named the “Oddyssey,” players will scour the galaxy for resources to power the “ARK,” a mega-mothership housing Earth’s last remaining two million human colonists who lie peacefully frozen in slumber. Through nebulas, asteroid fields, and whatever else stands in the way, the Oddyssey’s few awakened colonists will gather resources to further the ARK’s journey or use them to build and expand the ship to uncover new features that make life in space less difficult – and totally more awesome.

According to the promo material, your characters can die. However, death isn’t permanent for the player. The dead astronauts can be replaced by new characters that will have different skills and traits to continue adding variety to the gaming session. The character’s genomes can also be tinkered with. Awakened ARK colonists also have different personal needs. They can develop new traits depending on your actions and how characters handle stress levels. You will need to manage the ship by maintaining various machines. Resource management is important if you want to avoid disasters. 

Here’s the trailer!

Depending on how you wish to play, along with the single-player option, you can opt for 4-player local co-op or 8-player online co-op multiplayer modes. You will be tasked with building new rooms, inventing new technologies, mining materials, and a lot more.

The dev team took an “open-ended approach” in Oddyssey. You’re free to follow the main storyline or explore things your way.

Oddyssey: Your Space, Your Way will be available for Early Access on Steam for PC for $29.99. You can Wishlist the game right now.

You can follow the title on Twitter and Facebook.

As for Weird Fish S.A., it’s an independent game producer for computers and consoles. It was established in 2019 in Warsaw on the initiative of Marek Soból and Wiktor Szymański. Some of their internationally recognized games include Dead Island, Dead Island Riptide, Call of Juarez, and Dying Light.
