Codename: Wayward

We’ve been saying a lot of stuff about AtomJack, about the people, the studio and what we want to make – but we haven’t really talked about what we are making. Until now.

This is Wayward.

Wayward is the working title, or code name, of our first game. We don’t want to give away too much right now, but we’re just too excited not to share a little bit about the game. And we’re hoping to find other talented developers to make it come alive!

Wayward is the adventure of a young girl, lost on an alien planet, and the robot companion she discovers on her journey to find her way home.

Traveling through space

Going back to our roots in core games, we’re developing Wayward for PC and next gen consoles. The gameplay is inspired by classic action adventure games such as Super Metroid and Blaster Master, with art direction inspired by some of our favorite animation and comic artists of the 70’s and 80’s.

A chance encounter

It’s exciting for us to break away from our last few titles in the mobile and online space and dive into the story of Wayward, creating a game with a rich world, ready to explore, full of characters brimming with life.

We’re so very happy to finally be sharing this with you, even if we can’t say too much at this stage. We promise that in the coming months that we will be sharing much, much more.

And hey, if you’re interested in working with us at AtomJack to help make Wayward a reality, we’re hiring!
