Studio Snowblind, a newly formed Japanese independent developer, has announced Glaciered, a sci-fi adventure game set underwater on a glacier-covered Earth 65 million years in the future. It is planned to be released on PC via Steam. A release date has not been announced.
Snowblind was founded in May by Kei Shibuya, who previously worked on projects such as Project Nimbus: Complete Edition and Sumire, as well as various titles from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 era.
Glaciered takes place on Earth 65 million years in the future, where “eternal winter” has reduced the planet’s surface to a giant sheet of ice, and life continues to survive under glacier-covered seas.
Aquatic plants grow from glacial skies, and colorful bioluminescent fish illuminate the seafloor. A new species is thriving in this new golden age of life. These are Tuai, descendants of birds and successors of dinosaurs. Their superior intelligence and unique metabolism, developed over millions of years, ensured that they thrived in this icy environment. The great ice age that powers this bountiful ecosystem will last as long as Everwinter lasts.
