Japanese developer Skeleton Crew announced new game Olija today, to be published by Devolver Digital and released this year. Olija is a 2D action-adventure platformer where hero Faraday attempts to use his “legendary harpoon” to escape a strange country of Terraphage where he has been marooned. It’s a game with an indie aesthetic, using minimalist graphics paired with sharp action to set its visual scene.

Here’s an official plot description: “Through adventurous exploration, narration and razor sharp combat, the player will discover a strange world and its inhabitants, including Olija, an enigmatic lady that Faraday finds himself bound to over time. Inspired by swashbuckling tales and cinematic adventure games, Olija is a story about facing the unknown in adversity.”
