What It’s Like To Be Enslaved

From Ninja Theory, the developers behind Heavenly Sword, comes Enslaved:  Odyssey to the West. Published by Namco Bandai, Enslaved is an action adventure game that follows Monkey and Trip as they try to cross a post-apocalyptic Earth.

Enslaved is loosely based on a 16th-century Chinese novel called Journey to the West. Alex Garland, writer of The Beach and 28 Days Later, is helping write the script, while Andy Serkis (Gollum in the Lord of the Rings, and King Kong in, well, King Kong) is being doing the mocap and voice acting for Monkey.

In the future, slavers are still taking advantage of human misfortune. Trip, a young commune member, ends up aboard one of the slaver ships. Long story short, Trip manages to crash the ship and take control of Monkey’s enslaving headband, forcing him to take her home in exchange for his freedom.

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West should be released sometime in the latter half of 2010.
