Eco-focused video game studio Tigertron today released a new trailer for its underwater PlayStation 4 and PSVR-enabled adventure game Jupiter & Mars during Sony PlayStation’s E3 Showcase Preshow. Focusing on the game’s story, the trailer tells of a tribe of whales called The Elders who serve as the guides in the game. In addition, Tigertron announced that Jupiter & Mars will be playable for the first time in North America at E3’s premiere indie game showcase.
“For a trailer that debuted during Sony’s E3 press conference and simultaneously shown on movie screens across the country as a part of Sony’s E3 Experience, we wanted to do something a bit different and more provocative, using a piece from of our composer Jonathan Atkinson’s original score as the backdrop, we brought the game’s story and setting to the forefront. Observant viewers may even get a hint of the setting of the final level in the game.” – Tigertron’s Creative Director James Mielke.
