During the EA Play Conference 2018, Jo-Mei Studio has presented its third-person exploration game Sea of Solitude. Electronic Arts will publish the game under its indie game program EA Originals. The game’s protagonist is named Kay. When humans get too lonely, they turn into monsters. That’s what is now happening to her. And now only monsters can change her back.
But she’s not alone – this ocean is full of creatures just like her. Finding them may be the key to changing her back. Join her as she navigates the waters of heartache, empathy, and hope.
The developers have admitted that the game is partially built on the real events. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in early 2019.

The player controls a young woman named Kay as she explores an abandoned, submerged city and its creature in order to reveal why Kay herself has turned into a monster. The city is based on Berlin. The developers announced the game online in February 2015. Its creative director, Cornelia Geppert, described the project as her most personal and artistic, in how it led her to probe her own fears and emotions.
