The sci-fi game Journey to the Savage Planet from former Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry boss Alex Hutchinson and Typhoon Studios is now available to buy on Steam. The game originally launched a year ago this week as an exclusive for the Epic Games Store, but now it’s out on Valve’s platform following the end of the exclusivity deal with Epic.
Additionally, the game is marked down by 40% through February 15, while you can save even more if you buy the base game and the Hot Garbage DLC bundle. The game has a landing page on Steam but it doesn’t appear to have gone live just yet for sale–that should happen soon.
A first-person adventure game with a comedic bent, Journey to the Savage Planet takes players to an alien world where they must explore and learn about the flora and fauna. The game is playable solo or with two-player online co-op.
Journey to the Savage planet scored a 7/10 in GameSpot’s review back in January 2020. “Journey to the Savage Planet borrows plenty of familiar elements from other games,” reviewer Richard Wakeling wrote, “yet it does so in a carefree way that sets it apart from other sci-fi exploration games, settling on a relaxing playstyle that’s informed by its single, vivid planet and tightly focused design.”
The game’s developer, Typhoon Studios, was sold to Google at the end of 2019. The company is now developing games for Google Stadia.
