The game named after Washington State’s most famous urban port is going to be a “story exploration video game set 200,000 miles from Earth”. It’s by the creators of Gone Home so maybe expect the denizens of the Tacoma space station to be into really trendy music.

Third-person action game that draws on Celtic and Norse mythology in its trip through the underworld (and also maybe through mental illess).
