It was only a month ago that Waking by solo indie developer Jason Oda was revealed by publisher tinyBuild. This game was looking to be focused on an adventure within your mind, but it seems the journey is more focused on the action. The latest trailer features the combat system for Waking and is revered as, “combat with a lot of heart,” by the developer who commentates over the trailer.
Mentioning aspects of it being Dark Souls-esque might turn some people away, but the telekinesis focused action is sure to set it apart from other combat-focused games. Not to mention having the option to turn the difficulty down just sounds like Waking is going to be made to be suitable for all players who enjoy this genre. He does mention that we have to keep our fear down in the trailer, which at first I thought he meant staying focused on the fight, but at the end you see that the players Fear points were lowered once the boss fight ended. This may be an impacting mechanic in the game that is featured in other combat-focused titles.
Check out the trailer yourself and comment below what you think about this upcoming combat title. If you are excited, the wait shouldn’t be much longer before launch! It is still set for sometime in Summer of 2019 for both Steam and Xbox One.
