Hello! We are Out of the Blue Games, an indie game studio from Madrid, Spain. December 8 on, we launched our debut title Call of the Sea, a emotional and personal first-person puzzle adventure where you take the role of Norah Everhart, a woman who has crossed an ocean in the search of her husband’s missing expedition.
Everything then has been awesome since, reviews, critics, awards… We have been really pleased with just how things ‘re going with Call of the ocean, so we wished to make certain it reached as much players as you possibly can.
So we’d to create Call of the ocean to PlayStation definitely! Tomorrow the overall game will be on PS4 and PS5, May 11.
And exactly what will PlayStation players find in Call of the ocean? Last but not least, it’s a love letter to puzzle games and Lovecraftian stories occur the Pacific in the 1930s.
Exploration of the lush island Nora finds herself on is driven by the game’s narrative and its own puzzles. Those are hidden through the entire environment and have to be solved to discover more of the game’s world and its own story. Your journey shall take you across and below the island, learning both it and Norah’s needs as a character. All backed by way of a magnificent instrumental soundtrack composed by Eduardo de la Iglesia.
But Call of the ocean is not a typical puzzle game. We wished to intertwine every puzzle to every emotion Norah feels and experiences while keeping it tightly linked with the narrative. This real way, the ball player experiments the original fascination of Norah on the island, and worries for the wellbeing of her husband as she progresses, and also the bewilderment at the strange events and landscapes she discovers in probably the most secluded places of the island (and which are beautifully rendered by Unreal Engine 4). Call of the ocean isn’t only an exciting 30’s pulp adventure but additionally a woman’s journey of self-discovery.
Call of the ocean is really a Lovecraftian, however, not the standard Lovecraftian game either. Some of the H.P. Lovecraft stories are in regards to a passive subject that descends into madness, Call of the ocean tells the complete story of a resolute woman’s rise to sanity, in a complete story that revolves round the acceptance of one’s true nature.
When you play through Call of the ocean, you’ll have the delight of hearing talented actress Cissy Jones (Firewatch, The Walking Dead) creating a stunning and jaw-dropping performance of Norah Everhart.
Hopefully you set about an emotional journey and submerge yourself right into a vivid mystery to unravel what strange secrets of days gone by the island holds, and what might you in your search for your true self unearth. You’re hoped by us enjoy Call of the ocean.
