Independent developer Slow Bros. has announced that it will be providing a live stream of its upcoming “handmade” adventure game Harold Halibut.
On Wednesday, July 19, at 11:00 am PST Slow Bros. will be streaming pre-alpha gameplay of Harold Halibut via its Kickstarter page. As the game does not yet have voiceovers, the development team will be acting-out the game’s dialogue throughout the stream.
However, Slow Bros. isn’t stopping there. In addition to the gameplay stream, there will be a live Q & A segment, as well as a live clay sculpting by Ole Tillmann, the game’s Art Director.
The developer has also teased a new trailer that will be released following the live stream event. According to Game Designer Onat Hekimoglu, “it will give a good feel for the world of the game.”
Harold Halibut puts players in the shoes of a young janitor and lab assistant of a spaceship wreck stranded deep under the sea of a distant planet. As Harold, the player will experience the ship’s daily routine right up until the foreign world outside decides to interrupt. The game has also captured attention for its unique art-style by utilizing hand-sculpted models and sets.
Harold Halibut is expected to release on PC in January 2019. Although the developer believes it will be possible to launch the title on other platforms, they have not yet been confirmed.
Recently, Harold Halibut began its Kickstarter campaign. So far, it has raised $37,958 (out of about $170,000).
