About Harold Halibut:

Harold Halibut is a modern adventure game, with a strong focus on storytelling and exploration. So players slip into the shoes of Harold, a young janitor and lab assistant. Fulfilling his duties amidst a diverse community that lives under water.

The game’s unique look is achieved by 3D-scanning “real-world“ models. Which uses classic sculpting, set-building and puppet fabrication techniques. Providing a handmade analogue feel. While ensuring the dynamic gameplay experience of modern 3D games.

Set in the wreck of a spaceship, stuck under sea on a distant water planet. Harold goes about his daily routine. This includes assisting Professor Jeanne Mareaux, one of the lead scientists on board. All in her attempt to find a way to relaunch the ship. Their plan is soon to be interrupted by an encounter with the unchartered world outside.

Harold Halibut is available now for pledges via Kickstarter for Linux, Mac and Windows. In addition to the usual rewards backers have the option to pledge for unique limited rewards. Such as original physical models and set pieces. Or having a character in the game sculpted after their likeness.
