Fe

De­vel­oper Zoink Games Pub­lisher EA For­mat TBA Re­lease TBA

EDGE - - DISPATCHES PERSPECTIVE -

Last year, EA sur­prised ev­ery­one with Un­ravel, a strik­ingly pretty game about the ties that bind all liv­ing things, in­tro­duced by an en­dear­ingly ner­vous Swedish de­vel­oper. This year, Pa­trick Söder­lund an­nounced the EA Orig­i­nals pub­lish­ing pro­gramme, a new ini­tia­tive in­spired by Un­ravel. The pub­lisher, Söder­lund said, will seek out a few in­de­pen­dent projects each year and pro­vide them with fund­ing and sup­port. The first fruits of this pro­gramme can be seen in Fe, a strik­ingly pretty game about the ties that bind all liv­ing things, in­tro­duced by an en­dear­ingly ner­vous Swedish de­vel­oper. Ev­i­dently, EA has a type, but this third­per­son ad­ven­ture ap­pears to have more in com­mon with Jour­ney, with no­table sim­i­lar­i­ties in both the word­less com­mu­ni­ca­tion be­tween the cen­tral creature and its wood­land allies, and its ele­giac, string-soaked sound­track.
