Indie studio Slow Bros. announced a livestream for "Harold Halibut - A Handmade Adventure Game". The livestream is scheduled for Wednesday 19 July, 2017 at 7 PM BST. A Q&A as well as a live sculpting session by the game's art director, Ole Tillmann, is also planned.

"We are also going to release a new teaser after the event. We don’t want to spoil anything yet, but we think it will give a good feel for the world of the game", says Onat Hekimoglu, the game designer.

Harold Halibut is an adventure game, with a focus on storytelling and exploration. The player takes on the role of Harold, a "young janitor and lab assistant, fulfilling his duties amidst a diverse community that lives under water".

The game’s look is achieved by 3D-scanning the „real-world“ models, which are made using classic sculpting, set-building and puppet fabrication techniques. Hence the sculpting session.

Harold Halibut is set in a spaceship wreckage, stuck under the sea on a distant water planet.

Slow Bros. was founded in 2015 by long time friends Onat Hekimoglu, Ole Tillmann, Fabian Preuschoff and Daniel Beckmann. Harold Halibut is the first full-length video game the team is taking a stab at.
