The surreal sci-fi game Elea has set off into space on PlayStation 4, and the Steam version has received an update. The first-person storytelling adventure focusses on humanity’s place in the universe, the nature of intelligence and the meaning of faith. Kyodai, the developer of Elea, got the inspiration for the game’s narrative from classic sci-fi writers like Stanislaw Lem and Arthur C. Clarke.
A new trailer exhibits the surreal world of Elea. Packed with cryptic environments and puzzling scenarios, the trailer shows a preview of the adventurous space journey that lies ahead. Through the eyes of space scientist Elea, the trailer takes players into a world of mysteries. As the hypnotizing surroundings make for a bewildering impression, several quotes are shown from renowned video game journalists and players alike.
Kyodai ensures that there is a good amount of new content for the PS4 enhanced game, as well as some interesting features for PlayStation. The game supports PS Vita Remote Play and the DualShock 4 controller’s light bar and speaker features. The sci-fi game runs in up to 60 FPS with a dynamic 4k resolution on the PS4 Pro and up to 60 FPS with dynamic 1080p resolution on the regular PS4.
The game is now available for download on Xbox One, PS4 and Steam for PC.

No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It’s just the player, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing weapons off fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and manoeuvre through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets.
With its stylised graphics, the game finally adds something new to the FPS genre. Superhot’s polished, minimalist visual language helps players focus on what’s most important – the fluid gameplay and the cinematic beauty of the fight.
The game took thirty months to make, meaning thousands of hours were put into development and design. From its humble origins in the 7 Day FPS game jam, through a hugely successful Kickstarter campaign, to an array of awards and nominations from industry experts, Superhot is a labour of love by its independent, dedicated team and thousands of backers from all around the globe.
It has the following features:
• Endless Mode – how long can you last against unyielding waves of enemies?
• Challenge Mode – take on Superhot with your bare hands, no restarts, timed runs, and more.
• Extras – delve further into Superhot with mini-games, ASCII art, and [redacted].
The game is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop for R150.
