Just take a look at Sable. Go ahead, we’ll wait.

There’s so much going on in just that one minute and 30 seconds, and yet it’s serene. Soothing even. But bursting with ambition and an intimate story to share, all of which is wrapped in that gorgeous 80’s European comic aesthetic you see there—MY GOD.

This is Sable. Created by Gregorios Kythreotis and Daniel Fineberg from a studio they’ve founded called Shedworks. Original soundtrack (including the song for the trailer) composed by experimental pop artist Michelle Zauner of Japanese Breakfast. Narrative crafted by the talented Meg Jayanth. Sound design from Independent Games Festival award-winning audio designer Martin Kvale. Animation by brilliant newcomer Micah Holland.

What is Sable, though? A coming-of-age tale of discovery through exploration across a strikingly rendered open world desert. Go on a deeply personal journey across an alien planet as the young Sable, exploring ancient monuments, ruined architecture, and ships fallen from the cosmos, all while learning the history of its inhabitants and discovering her place in the world.

There’s so much to share about Sable in the coming year, but for now please let that trailer lull you into wonderment.

Sable is coming to PC and console in 2019. For more information, visit sablegame.com.
