Epic Games Store — one of the platforms on which the discount is available — say this is a “heartfelt story of courage, wonder and regret.”
“Jett” is the first game for developer Superbrothers since “Sword and Sworcery,” which was released on multiple platforms between 2010-12. “Jett: The Far Shore” can also claim similarities with the popular space survival game, “No Man’s Sky” because of its open world adventure style.
