Tigertron, a New York City-based indie developer, announced that their upcoming single-player adventure game Jupiter & Mars is heading to PS4 and PSVR in Spring 2019.
First teased at E3 last year, the game is said to take place in a neon-soaked future world populated by intelligent sea life such as the Earth’s ‘elder whales,’ an ancient race of whales that enlist two bottlenose dolphins to help restore the oceans from disruptive and damaging pollution emanating from man-made machines.
In the game, the player controls Jupiter, a dolphin with enhanced echolocation powers that travels around the world with AI companion Mars to disable the machines disrupting marine life, all the while solving puzzles and encountering mysterious sea creatures along the way.
Jupiter & Mars is being developed in partnership with ocean conservation organizations SeaLegacy and The Ocean Foundation.
With the game, the developer hope to give players “a deeper appreciation for the oceans and, especially through VR, leave a first-hand impression of the issues of sea level rising, coral bleaching, and plastics in the ocean.”
To boot, the studio also released a new trailer that dives deeper into the story behind the game.
