Hazel Sky, engineering – Still Brewing
What do we know so far?
Who are behind Hazel Sky?
Continuing with their already substantial year Hazel Sky is being published by Another Indie. If you don’t recall they are the team bringing us Jack Axe, Drill Man Rumble and Elden and recently gave us Simulacra 2. But this game is being developed by another team Coffee Addict Studio (great name). Hazel Sky will be Coffee Addict Studio’s second game after Blade & Bones, however it is their first game with Another Indie.
What kind of game will it be?
Hazel Sky is set to be an action-adventure game with elements of platforming and puzzles. The main concept of the game is that you play as an engineer. And so you will be using his engineering skills to fix things and solve puzzles, while you explore the beautiful mysterious island.
Where will we find it?
The game has been confirmed for the PC. And is available to be wishlisted on Steam now (link below). It will also be available for Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4 and XboxOne like most Another Indie projects.
When can we get it?
The game is scheduled for release in 2020. No further information has been provided that narrows that down. But the developers are hard at work getting the game ready for launch.
More info required!
Hazel Sky begins with Shane (our young engineer) being banished to the island far away from the flying city Gideon of which he hails. I’ve mentioned that Shane is an engineer a few times, but that’s not exactly the case. You see, Shane has been banished to the island to face the tests necessary to become an engineer or risk complete exile from his homeland. The trails seem to consist of repairs and possibly building flying machines to escape the island. However, the trailer and information revealed so far are somewhat vague so they might be optional or only a part of the story.
Speaking of the story, as well as the trial you are to overcome, there is also mention of a potential romance on the island. But the developers describe the game as bittersweet. So things might not be as relaxing as the art of the mysterious island may appear. Furthermore, the game also warns of graphic depictions of injury, death and even suicide. So younger gamers may need to either play with supervision or find another game. However, it seems like a lot of the game would appeal to a casual player, especially the exploration side of things. More information will need to be confirmed by the developers. But regardless of that, the game is looking amazing already. The island landscape already looks like an ideal holiday destination.
We here at Sip Read Repeat hope to bring you a full review when we can. Check back later and keep gaming and drinking (coffee).

Coffee of choice: I like the sweeter kinds, mixed with chocolate, coconut, caramel etc. but I won’t turn down a flat white or a straight black either.
