The newly founded independent studio Cosmic Picnic, staffed with Senior DICE and Ghost Games employees, announces ‘Amazing Discoveries In Outer Space’ for Playstation 4 to be released autumn 2015.
Amazing Discoveries In Outer Space (ADIOS) is a 2D space exploration game with a rich simulation based on astrophysics. We have heard people say that ADIOS “plays like a mix between Kerbal and Spelunky”. But we think we have found the sweet spot between a real space mission and Bubble Bobble.
An untimely navigation computer reboot leaves you in search of your home world with limited fuel reserves. So get creative and let gravity be your guide to saving fuel. Also, don’t be afraid to let your legs get some of that much needed workout as you search for clues to get you closer to home.
Newtonian spaceflight combined with platformer style planet exploration.
Comprehensive physical simulation of entire solar systems including gravity, temperature and atmospheric air resistance.
Procedurally generated solar systems, each with a plethora of planets, asteroids, alien species and strange artifacts.
No weapons or killing (horrible accidents may occur)

About Cosmic Picnic
The dev team had circled the sun quite a while before they decided to go indie. Previous titles include: SQRXZ, Battlefield 2142, Battlefield: Bad Company, Battlefield 1943, Mirrors Edge, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 and Need for Speed: Rivals. They are separated by the epic vastness of the Swedish country, forced to communicate via electric signals only. But they are fiercely determined and create the best possible game for humanoid bipedals.
