7 Games From E3 2016 You Probably Haven’t Heard Of

The Long Journey Home (Alex Newhouse)
This game seems wildly ambitious. Like Gonner, Iit's a procedurally generated roguelike, but it also has a pretty significant amount of dialogue and a huge, open galaxy to explore. The closest analogue is something like FTL: Faster Than Light, if FTL gave you full control over your ship in atmosphere and in space. The conceit is that you and the crew of a spaceship end up transported to the edge of the galaxy when a warp goes awry; your crew must make its way back home. Meeting aliens along the way presents opportunities through dialogue trees to make war or peace; planets in solar systems have opportunities for discovery and mining. The Long Journey Home is due out on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in the second half of 2016.
