Every so often, a game comes along that attempts the harness the creative spirit of gamers with accessible tools woven into the full experience. E-Line Media, the team behind the indie hit Never Alone, is following up their debut with an ambitious title The Endless Mission where the hero journeys through a sandbox world, creating games and experiences along the way.
The following statements are taken from the press release for the game's reveal:
"Developed through a collaboration between E-Line Media and Endless Interactive, with a story by the veteran team of writers at Sleep Deprivation Lab, whose credits include Middle Earth: Shadow Of Mordor, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and The Crew - The Endless Mission explores what it means to shape the technology in our lives versus being shaped by it. It launches players on a journey to a world where nothing is as it seems and the power to shape everything around them exists at the tips of their fingers.
Those who embark upon The Endless Mission are invited to mashup, mix, and modify games across a wide variety of beloved genres, even manipulating the essence of the game down to the very code itself - creating new experiences and gameplay opportunities as they discover what is at stake for the world as we know it. Will you accept The Endless Mission?"
E-Line is driving into a lane with some established heavy hitters. Media Molecule’s LittleBigPlanet dominated the creative scene in the previous console generation and is returning to the genre with Dreams sometime this year. The Arma 3 devs are even tossing their hats into the ring with Ylands. We don’t know a lot about The Endless Mission
