It's been a LONG time since I was a teen
I Was A Teenage Exocolonist isn’t coming to Switch until August 25th, 2022, but why wait until then to celebrate the game’s launch? The official launch trailer for the title has been shared, and you can check it out above.
Along with that, a second trailer was shared that introduces us to the various characters you’ll meet along the way. As long as you don’t mind getting a sneak peek at some faces and personalities prior to the game’s launch, check out the trailer above.
Developed by Northway Games, I Was A Teenage Exocolonist will ask you to spend your teenage years on an alien planet in this narrative RPG with card-based battles. Explore, grow up, and fall in love. The choices you make and skills you master over ten years will determine the course of your life and the survival of your colony.
Growing up in humanity’s first extrasolar colony, you and your family are refugees from Earth flung into a new world of wonder and danger. You have your whole life ahead of you: Will you become an engineer and bring modern technology to this jurassic planet? Or cultivate the alien plants and live in harmony with exotic nature? Battle the massive beasts which rule Vertumna, or nurture future generations of humans?
Your decisions matter; whether to study, learn to play an instrument, obey your parents or sneak out to explore the hazardous jungle. Adolescence is full of awkwardness and clumsy mistakes, but everything you learn will make you - and your colony - stronger. Your memories, decisions and friendships will be at your side when strife is near, becoming collectible cards used for everything from taking a math test to escaping the jaws of a wild snapbladder.
A strange connection to an orbiting wormhole causes you to remember events from your past lives. It’ll take many lives to find every ending and ultimately a way to save both your colony and the planet.
