” It’s been 250 years because your home– an ark-like spaceship– left an Earth on the brink of cold war to discover a habitable world on which to maintain the mankind,” state the designers Slow Bros. “You are Harold, a young lab assistant for the ship’s lead scientist, Jeanne Mareaux. While most of the ship’s residents have reconciled themselves to a life lived aboard the sunken ship, Mareaux still works tirelessly to discover a way for the ship to leave the world and find a brand-new, clothes dryer home.”
Harold and Mareaux dig even deeper into the secret in this here new story trailer. It appears there’s more to the world they crash arrived on than they ‘d initially known.
” Harold Halibut started life as a conversation over supper about our love of stop-motion and story games,” Slow Bros. say. “It wasn’t long after that we began building doll-house sized sets and puppets in our bed rooms. The result is a cross in between video game and stop movement film.”
All the environements in the trailer are detailed and so neat looking. The control space up leading there with its bright colors and small lights are one thing. The little information are equally cool, like the cool ceiling in the disco or the small paper lantern lighting Mareaux’s house.
Even without the remarkable devotion of its handcrafted human beings, Harold seems like an appealing adventure. I’m usually up for a bit of retro-futurism and a secret about human civilization stranded in space. Overdo the completely voice-acted characters and the synthwave-y music and it sure seems like one worth looking out for.
Harold Halibut does not have a release date yet, but you can watch on it over on Steam in the meantime.
