The Tomorrow Children’s bleak yet striking world has become the focus of a new post from developers Q-Games.

President and executive producer Dylan Cuthbert has gone into detail about the cinematography, lighting, and geometry used to give The Tomorrow Children its unique appearance.

Q-Games, best known for their retro-styled Pixeljunk games are making a marked departure from the series with The Tomorrow Children. Cuthbert revealed that the game came about after PlayStation 4 lead architect Mark Cerny asked for “something a little outside the box” from the developers, which this game certainly is. We’re intrigued to see how the studio handles such a contrasting and ambitious project.

The Tomorrow Children was initially announced to be coming to PS4 at Gamescom this year. No due date is known as yet.
