Sony Computer Entertainment have used this years Gamescom to lift the shades on exclusive new title ‘The Tomorrow Children’, from the mind of veteran creator Dylan Cuthbert.
One of the reasons gaming is so awesome is the way it can transport us to a world so completely different from our own. The Tomorrow Children, revealed as a PlayStation 4 exclusive at this years Gamescom show, looks set to be one of those titles that really takes you out of the space you are in and offer you something completely new. The Tomorrow Children is the story of a dystopian future following a failed Russian experiment to join the minds of the worlds people into one super intelligence. You are tasked with venturing out into the world to reclaim the human race and restore the world to how it once was.
So what do you actually, you know, do in the tomorrow children? Dylan Cuthbert explains ;
“The first thing you’ll be expected to do is explore and mine for materials, because the town needs as many resources as it can get to defend itself from the marauding attacks of the Izverg – giant monsters that roam the Void. The islands you visit to mine resources are also generated by the Void and contain all kinds of strange things, including monsters and treasure. They usually come in the shape of symbolic structures or objects from humanity’s past.”
Its hard not to jump to Minecraft as a reference point, but it still sounds very interesting to us. You will also be able to briefly populate other players worlds as you gain power, and trade resources for upgraded abilities and items.
