A space-faring collaboration between Sydney's Blowfish Studios and a pair of American developers is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and iOS.

Morphite is a sci-fi exploration FPS with platforming elements that takes players to the farthest reaches of the cosmos.

It follows the adventures of Myrah Kale, a young space station worker whose life takes a turn for the extraordinary after a routine mission turns into a heroic journey to find the mythical substance Morphite and to discover its connection to her mysterious past.

Morphite features combat, scanning, meetings with friendly explorers willing to trade resources, and more. The more Myrah learns about the universe, the more information she can sell for ship, suit, and weapon upgrades.

And yes, it somewhat resembles No Man's Sky, except it's full of painstakingly detailed hand-crafted planets (as well as a few million procedurally-generated worlds).

"Morphite recreates the humbling experience of looking at the night sky in awe, while providing the toolset to explore each and every star on an epic interstellar adventure," said Blowfish Studios CEO Ben Lee.

"With one of the largest universes ever created in gaming, we know Morphite will provide more adventure than one person could ever complete in a lifetime."

A Switch version is coming later this year.
