PLAYISM is proud to announce that we will be publishing Glaciered, the futuristic underwater soulslike by Studio Snowblind, led by indie developer Kei SHIBUYA.
Today was also the first day of INDIE Live Expo 2023, where we revealed the newest Glaciered trailer in the Indie Live Premiere corner.
About the Game
Aquatic plants grow from glacier skies and colorful, bioluminescent fish light the seafloor. A new species prospers in this new golden age of life. They are the Tuai, descended from birds and successors of the dinosaurs. The superior intellect and unique metabolism they evolved over millions of years secured their prosperity in this icy environment. The great Ice Age that nurtures this bountiful ecosystem will survive for as long as the Everwinter persists.
Play as a Tuai fighting against that which has come to threaten the Everwinter.
Dynamic Underwater Action
Glaciered features real-time, dynamic combat that combines melee and ranged attacks with special abilities. Unleash the power within the Tuai avian and dinosaur bloodlines and harness their ability to control heat and cold.
Build Your Own Moveset
Build your character by combining various abilities and passive skills like high-speed swimming that creates tunnels of supercritical water, temporal crystal blades, and more.
Explore the Oceans 65 Million Years in the Future
Discover unique ecosystems spread across an ocean Earth 65 million years in the future. Visit grasslands growing from icy skies, swim past schools of thermophilic fish coating the seafloor, and fend off members of the Crocodilia family that have been freed from gravity's grip and grown to enormous size.

About Studio Snowblind
Studio Snowblind is an indie game studio founded by game creator Kei Shibuya, the producer, programmer, technical artist, VFX artist, and UX artist for titles such as Project Nimbus: Complete Edition and Sumire.
He has been involved in game development both in Japan and overseas ever since the PlayStation 3® / Xbox 360™ / Wii™ generation of game consoles. In recent years, he has worked in Japanese localization for numerous indie games, and his mission is to utilize his experience to create a game that's unique and characteristic of him as a writer in a way that only indie games can be.
Glaciered is Studio Snowblind's first game project, and most of the development work is done by Shibuya alone.
"I can barely contain my excitement over the fact that PLAYISM, one of my absolute favorite publishers in the industry, will be publishing my game. Ever since the game was announced, I've received a lot of support and attention from players, so I'm working closely with PLAYISM and giving it my all to deliver a game that everyone will be satisfied with.
We'll polish the game's characteristic 360° action to make it even more exciting, and create features that add depth to the gameplay, such as a wide variety of underwater creatures that dwell in the frozen oceans 65 million years in the future, and day and night mechanics. Please look forward to it!"
—Kei Shibuya, CEO of Studio Snowblind, developer of Glaciered
