The world of Pan may involve lost boys, fairy dust, and pirate ships, but the world of Pan-Pan will involve broken spaceships, "environmental narrative storytelling" and "world-shifting riddles" when it launches this summer. It's twice the Pan!
Pan-Pan casts players in the role of a space traveler whose ship has landed on a strange world and needs to be repaired before you can begin your "pilgrimage" home. While that's about it for story details at this stage, the game promises to be an open-world adventure that encourages exploration and personal choice in how you go about overcoming the obstacles confronting you.
The first screenshots of Pan-Pan show off the isometric perspective and minimalist art style being used, while the trailer offers a sampling of the "tranquil sounds of a melodic soundtrack" from composer Simon Viklund that will provide the ambient backdrop to the experience. While there will be characters to interact with through the game, the main story beats will be told through direct interaction with the 3D environment as you "use a mix of tools, gadgets and devices to solve puzzles and uncover the path home."
Created collaboratively by SPELKRAFT and Might and Delight, Pan-Pan is already well along in production, with a PC launch target currently set for August on Steam.
