PLAYISM will publish Glaciered, the underwater science-fiction action adventure game from Japanese developer Studio Snowblind first revealed in July 2022, the company announced. It will launch for PC via Steam in 2025.
The developer also touched on the possibility of a console release, stating, “Outside of Steam, we’re also starting to see the possibility of releasing a console version. While we’re not yet at the stage where we can make a formal announcement, we will make it official as soon as we are in a position to share concrete details, so please look forward to it.”
Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:
Glaciered takes place on Earth 65 million years in the future, where the “Everwinter” has transformed the planet’s surface into a gigantic sheet of ice and life continues to survive under the glacier-covered seas.
Aquatic plants grow from glacier skies and colorful, bioluminescent fish light the seafloor. A new species prospers in this new golden age of life. They are the Tuai, descended from birds and successors of the dinosaurs. The superior intellect and unique metabolism they evolved over millions of years secured their prosperity in this icy environment. The great Ice Age that nurtures this bountiful ecosystem will survive for as long as the Everwinter persists.
Play as a Tuai fighting against that which has come to threaten the Everwinter.
- Glaciered features real-time, dynamic combat that combines melee and ranged attacks with special abilities. Unleash the power within the Tuai avian and dinosaur bloodlines and harness their ability to control heat and cold.
- Build your character by combining various abilities and passive skills like high-speed swimming that creates tunnels of supercritical water, temporal crystal blades, and more.
- Discover unique ecosystems spread across an ocean Earth 65 million years in the future. Visit grasslands growing from icy skies, swim past schools of thermophilic fish coating the seafloor, and fend off members of the Crocodilia family that have been freed from gravity’s grip and grown to enormous size.
