“Glaciered, an icy underwater motion sport, appears sick”
Why sure, I wish to ‘soar by way of the seas’
Underwater ranges in mostly-above-ground video games generally is a drag, however when the entire idea is centered round swimming, I’m normally on board. I’ve by no means seen something fairly like Glaciered, an action-adventure sport from Japanese indie crew Studio Snowblind.
Image a classy character motion sport with slick-looking ranged and melee assaults — now submerge it in a frozen-over planet with beast-filled waters. That’s the fundamental pitch.
What precisely is that factor?
The overgrown underwater threats will look acquainted in case you had dinosaur image books as a child, however what on the planet is that this freaky major character? Why is it making eye contact?
Glaciered stars the fin-kicking Tuai species, that are “descended from birds and successors of the dinosaurs.” They’ll “management warmth and chilly,” as a result of why not? It appears cool! In apply, you’ll be capable to dive, swerve, slash, and unleash a barrage of projectiles — typical stuff for the style at massive, however not a lot for a sport set underwater.
“Construct your character by combining numerous talents and passive expertise like high-speed swimming that creates tunnels of supercritical water, temporal crystal blades, and extra,” based on the builders’ abstract. “Go to grasslands rising from icy skies, swim previous faculties of thermophilic fish coating the seafloor, and fend off members of the Crocodilia household which were free of gravity’s grip and grown to monumental measurement.”
Transient as it could be, the announcement trailer has me hooked on the *concept* of Glaciered. It merely appears like one thing I’d get pleasure from enjoying, and from the crisp, fast-moving footage we’ve seen thus far, it’s straightforward to think about the way it all feels. I’m hoping that gamers (like me) who aren’t the perfect at air juggling in different video games can slide proper in and pull off some sick shit. It’s an incredible first impression, now we simply have to see extra to know the scope.
Studio Snowblind doesn’t have a launch date in thoughts but. That mentioned, there’s a Steam web page if you wish to wishlist Glaciered — or simply take a look at the remainder of the screenshots. I really like catching an out-of-nowhere sport like this that simply appears to click on. I’ll be conserving tabs!
