“One of the truly great promises of video games as a medium is to let you experience a life different from your own,” said Breaking Walls Co-Founder and Creative Director Laurent Bernier. “I can confidently say that no gamers are sugar gliders, so it’s through the magic of the medium that we’re able to fully flesh out the day to day life of these majestic creatures. Watching a nature documentary isn’t the same thing as a lived experience, and with AWAY we sought to create the closest thing any of us will ever experience to actually being a sugar glider.”
