Q-Games’ The Tomorrow Children is coming back, 4 years after closing

Pixeljunk designer Q-Games is restoring its extremely unusual PlayStation 4 online experience, The Tomorrow Kid, more than 4 years after the video game closed down as part of a plan with the video game’s initial publisher, Sony Interactive Home Entertainment. Q-Games revealed Tuesday that it had actually obtained the rights to The Tomorrow Kid from Sony, and prepares to “rebuild” the free-to-play video game with upgraded gameplay.

Q-Games stated in a press release that it prepares to “document and give exciting development updates every step of the way to bringing the game back to life.” In a declaration, Q-Games creator Dylan Cuthbert thanked both fans for their dedication to the video game — which was just formally live for about a year — and Sony for returning the IP and video game to Q-Games.

“I am now tweaking and re-working parts of the game every week, and I hope everyone follows along and gets involved in this process,” Cuthbert stated. “We plan to make quite a few changes for the better, and give The Tomorrow Children the re-launch it deserves!”

The Tomorrow Kid introduced in 2016 on PS4 as a free-to-play, massive cooperative multiplayer video game. In the video game, gamers presume the function of survivors of a Soviet-era disaster, wishing to reconstruct civilization in an environment called deep space. Gamers cooperatively build structures, turrets, and other protective structures as they reconstruct their towns and ward off huge beasts called Izverg. The Tomorrow Kid included a unique graphics rendering design and an alternate future “Neo-Soviet” visual.

While special and precious by a hardcore group of fans, The Tomorrow Kid got a cool crucial action for its in some cases laborious, recurring gameplay for what looked like underwhelming benefits.
