At this year’s Future Games Show, we got a new sample of the upcoming Harold Halibut stop-motion adventure. Earlier we saw a short trailer released earlier this year that showed the game’s magnificent artistic style, but this time the developers Slow Bros. they tell us more details of the story of his post-apocalyptic adventure.
So far, we’ve been mostly in the dark about how humanity ended up 20,000 leagues under an alien sea, but now we have a little more research. It turns out that 250 years ago, a spacecraft full of humans left Earth on the brink of the Cold War to find another planet. It seems that something of the ship's voyage has failed, forcing him to settle in less than hospitable circumstances.
You play Harold, a laboratory assistant from the spaceship's main scientist who tries to find a way to attack the ship and return it to space, even though many of the ship's inhabitants have come to peace with their lives. submarine.
The trailer shows Harold wandering around the ship, which the developers say you can explore most of right at the beginning of the game. It looks spectacular and knowing that all the details were handmade makes Harold Halibut even more impressive. I can imagine exploring the whole ship for the first hour completely ignoring the story and chatting with the “wonderfully weird” characters on the ship. The last of humanity seems like a peculiar group, which makes sense to see how most of them led closed lives, raised in a spaceship in the city trapped underwater.
Every second of the newly released images of Harold Halibut is always a delight, and it seems like everything we’re getting until the game hits the PC “soon”.
