There's no denying that Sea of Solitude was one of the most intriguing games of 2019, so fans of the team at Jo-Mei Games and Creative Director Cornelia Geppert should be more than happy to hear that she has already finished the first draft of her next project.
"Maybe because last days of 2019 had been so chillaxing: sport, reading, cooking, convo all NYE with best friend, i woke up this morning inspired & energetic as heck! So today i wrote the ENTIRE DRAFT of our NEXT GAME!! What a first day of the new decade. 2020, let‘s get it on!," Geppert announced on Twitter.
Considering that Sea of Solitude was published under the EA Originals program, chances are that Jo-Mei Games' second major project will also be created in partnership with the American giant; following in the footsteps of Hazelight Studios, the renowned makers of 2018's A Way Out — one of the biggest positive surprises of that year.
As a reminder, Sea of Solitude was released last year to generally favourable reviews. The disturbing production puts the spotlight on Kay — a depressed girl who embarks on a dark journey to confront her inner demons.
According to Geppert, “Sea of Solitude centres on the essence of loneliness and tugs on the heartstrings of its players by mirroring their own reality. It’s by far the most artistic and personal project I’ve ever created, written during a very emotional time in my life,” the German artist explained in the press release announcing SoS' release date.
While it's good to hear that Geppert is already developing her next game, it definitely sounds like her new project is in a very early stage of production — so better don't expect any immediate news about the mysterious title in the foreseeable future.

Sea of Solitude takes you on a personal journey of a young woman’s loneliness. Set sail across a beautiful and evolving world, where nothing is quite what it seems. Meet fantastical creatures and monsters, learn their stories, and solve challenges. Explore a flooded city, either by boat, on foot, or by swimming through the water itself. Dare to look what lies beneath the surface, in a haunting struggle of darkness and light, and discover what it truly means to be human.
Sea of Solitude is available now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
