During INDIE Live Expo 2023, PLAYISM announced it will publish Studio Snowblind-developed underwater action adventure game Glaciered, which is currently in development for PC via Steam. The developer notes that a console release is possible, but development is not at a stage where an official announcement can be made.
Here’s an overview of Glaciered via PLAYISM:
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.
Dynamic Underwater Action
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 Own Moveset
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.
Explore the Oceans 65 Million Years in the Future
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.
