The upcoming spaceship adventure sim Jumplight Odyssey from Melbourne-based developer League of Geeks has received a release date. We now look forward to playing the game on August 21, when it launches into Early Access. 

Inspired by both staples of the genre and classic 70s sci-fi anime, Jumplight Odyssey was one of the most played demos during Steam Next Fest in June last month. Now players can look forward to taking on more command of the SDF Catalina as Princess Euphora when the game launches in Early Access on Steam.

Check out the latest trailer below, which gives you a good look at the game’s 70s-inspired visuals, tone and systems of the game, which involve looking after your crew, despatching them on a mission and building upon and repairing your space station. Of course, as captain, you’ll also be making some big decisions throughout the game.

Jumplight Odyssey will release on Steam Early Access on August 21. A PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S version of the game is planned for release following the Early Access period.
