Aurora's Journey and the Pitiful Lackey Announced

Sony Interactive Entertainment España and the Not so Great team announce Aurora's Journey and the Pitiful Lackey, a run-and-gun platformer coming next year to Steam and PlayStation. Here's a trailer with a look at how this plays. The game is set after the turn of the 20th century when it turns out what was assumed to be a natural phenomenon turns out to be anything but:
What if an ancient comet that crashed into Earth was actually an alien ship torn into pieces? That's what actually happened in 1908 (at least in Aurora's Journey's universe) and that event let to the discovery of the robotos: peaceful, robotic and clunky beings. One of them, Lackey, is one Aurora's oldest companions, and soon will join her in a quest to find her missing father when she receives his journey via mail.

William was one of the scientists behind the discovery of that comet that turned out to be an ancient ship and disappeared four years ago after embarking on an expedition to closely research the remains of the alien ship. Why is his diary appearing now? Is he alive? Who has sent it, if not Aurora's father?
