AWAY: The Survival Series - An animal adventure game

CA$ 135,789

Embark on a breathtaking journey into the wild.

Coming to PC and PlayStation 4, AWAY: The Survival Series is a high-flying adventure that brings nature documentaries to life. 

Playing as the tiny Sugar Glider, the game is set in a distant future where the animal kingdom reigns supreme. From the mighty treetops to the forest floor, immerse yourself in nature as you explore a vibrant world brimming with life, but beware of the dangers that await on your adventures…

If you’d like a sneak peek, our team has put together a Gliding Prototype to showcase the Sugar Glider’s most exciting ability! Try it out and let us know what you think 😃

Set in a distant future, a series of natural disasters threatens the survival of every species on Earth. Playing as the tiny Sugar Glider, you must seek refuge in safer lands, but it’s not long before you are separated from your family and left to fend for yourself.  

Fighting for survival, you will have to make your way across the dangerous world of AWAY as you embark on an epic journey to save your family. 

Watch the world around you come to life as you explore a rich diversity of stunning environments and uncover the hidden life that lies deep within the forests, caverns, and swamps. 

Given the Sugar Glider’s small size, we made sure every plant, leaf, and blade of grass was accounted for, and this attention to detail pays off when you navigate the wide variety of landscapes in AWAY. 

We also designed the environments around the Sugar Glider’s ability to jump, climb, and glide through its surroundings. This flexibility allows you to navigate the world around you in whichever way you see fit, allowing you to truly immerse yourself in nature. 


As you make your way through the world of AWAY, you will explore living, breathing ecosystems filled with predators and prey of all shapes and sizes. From small insects to large mammals, the animals you see in the wild each lead a life of their own, interacting with each other independently of your adventures.

Of course, you will also be able to interact with these animals as you encounter them throughout your journey.

Whether you’re hunting down small critters or avoiding large predators through stealth and agility, you get to choose how you want to approach each situation. But be careful not to bite off more than you can chew… 

By supporting AWAY on Kickstarter, you’re helping us implement an exciting new feature: the ability to play as different animals! 

While the game tells the story of the Sugar Glider, we wanted to give you the opportunity to play as some of the other animals and insects you encounter in the wild. Each animal has its own unique traits and attributes, so you can experience the world of AWAY from a variety of new perspectives.

In AWAY, nature itself also acts as a powerful enemy throughout your adventures. Your survival will depend on your ability to escape nature’s wrath as your journey takes you through violent storms and literal *fire tornados*.

Having worked on hundreds of major game and movie soundtracks, including Planet Earth II and Life nature documentaries, Mike Raznick brings his experience as a multi-award winning composer and audio director to AWAY with an enchanting musical score.

Recorded with a live 40-string orchestra, this soundtrack is the final ingredient that brings AWAY together, transforming the game into a vivid, emotional experience that we hope will stay with you long after you’re finished playing.

We are Breaking Walls, an independent game studio founded by industry veterans in Montréal. We have a soft spot for immersive, visually stunning, story-rich games, and this is what we strive to achieve in our projects.

With decades of experience working on major AAA titles such as Assassin's Creed, Prince of Persia, and Far Cry, our team has spent the last three years developing AWAY: The Survival Series and we’re looking forward to your feedback and support to help us finish the game!

For the past three years, we have worked alongside our community to develop our dream game. From our early prototypes to our latest PS4 announcement, your feedback and support has helped us make AWAY into the game it is today.

As we get closer to the finish line, we decided to bring AWAY to Kickstarter so we could work together with you to finish the game and give it the level of quality and polish it deserves.

Ultimately, the success of AWAY depends on you. If you’re excited about the game, please spread the word about our campaign and help us bring AWAY: The Survival Series to life!

Risks and challenges

Breaking Walls is an award-winning studio with team members who have successfully released several AAA titles over the past 15+ years. However, every unfinished game has risks. AWAY: The Survival Series is already most of the way through production and has a fully staffed team, so it is considered low-risk as a project.
