Early Access Release Date Reveal Trailer

Jumplight Odyssey takes players on a unique spaceship adventure starring Princess Euphora, the commander of the SDF Catalina. Join her as you navigate across star systems, as you try to escape from Admiral Voltan and the dangerous Zutopans, in search of the fabled Forever Star—a mythical new home far across the galaxy.

Chart your course and escape enemy fleets

Players will manage resources, define their leadership style, and make critical decisions to maintain hope aboard the SDF Catalina. Assign tasks to crew members across various divisions, such as Science, Engineering, Combat, and Supply. Dispatch pilots to gather resources, rescue new members to expand the crew, and defend the spaceship against surprise Zutopan ambushes as they relentlessly pursue you across the galaxy.

Manage your resources as well as your crew’s morale

Delve into a vibrant space society within the SDF Catalina, witness emergent stories, and help deepen relationships among the crew. Customise and expand the decks of the Catalina, and experiment with different layouts inspired by Incredible Cross Sections. Use Starlight, a crucial resource that enables the Catalina to jump to new star systems to evade the relentless pursuit of the Zutopans.

The only hope left is the Forever Star

Jumplight Odyssey will be available on Steam Early Access from August 21, 2023, with English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Russian, Brazilian Portuguese, Polish, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese (Simplified and Traditional) language support. PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S versions are planned to release following Early Access.
