Haven gameplay reveal

The Game Bakers unveil more details on their upcoming RPG Haven with a full gameplay trailer and a demo at Gamescom and PAX West.

Montpellier July 9th 2019,

In Haven, you share the journey of two lovers escaped to a lost planet in a desperate attempt to stay together. You play as Yu and Kay, gliding over the grasslands of a shattered planet, unravelling its mysteries looking for a way to settle down.

“Haven is a very accessible RPG, a relaxing game. It’s purposefully a very different experience from Furi.” writes Emeric Thoa, the game creative director. “But as with Furi, we tried to make a game that you have never experienced before. The story of a couple fighting for their freedom, an established relationship: what love looks like when you’ve moved past the early seduction phase, when you can be your true self with one another… I don’t think that’s been done much in video games.

Haven is a story-rich adventure, with touching characters with whom you fall in love as you follow them through their challenges and everyday life. But it’s also a (J)RPG with an innovative combat system that lets you play the two characters at the same time, and chain actions using tactics and timing. “It’s a game with many inspirations, but to sum it up, I like to say Haven is kind of the lovechild of Journey meets Persona” details Emeric Thoa in his blog post about the game experience and influences.

The colorful and dreamy art direction of the light science fiction world of Haven is coming to life thanks to an original electro soundtrack by Danger, with a range of tracks that will carry players from the energy of a sunny morning to the tension of a fight in the mountains at night.

Haven is a solo game at its core, but at any time, a second player can jump in locally. Players can then share a moment of exploration and progression together.

The game will be available for PC, PS4 and Switch, and the complete platforms plan is not final. A demo will be playable at Gamescom (media only) and PAX West, contact us to book an appointment.
