BEIJING – April 11, 2016 – Oasis Games Ltd, a leading independent Chinese publisher, announced today that KOI, an award-winning exploration adventure game that follows the quest of a lone koi fish through an ever-evolving lotus pond, will be available on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system via the PlayStation®Store in North America on April 19, 2016. Developed by Tianjin-based indie studio Dotoyou, KOI will be the first ever Chinese developed title to be published on PlayStation®4 for Western territories.
KOI takes players on a seemingly small journey with deeper meaning. Players guide the koi through the murky waters tainted by mankind by solving puzzles, discovering enchanting melodies hidden within deadened twigs and other zen-like missions to bring light back to the darkened, polluted waters. This artfully depicted world conveys a wonderfully imaginative experience with an entrancing soundtrack by popular Chinese artist, Zeta.
Previously released on mobile to positive accolades and awards overseas including earning a first place award for the Modian Web PlayStation Developer Competition, KOI for PlayStation®4 is developed by Dotoyou and published by Oasis Games in North America and European territories. KOI will be available for $9.99 and $7.99 exclusively for PlayStation®Plus members via the PlayStation®Store. KOI is rated E for “Everyone” by the ESRB.
