Tideshell Studio have announced The Tideshell Keeper, a traditional point and click adventure game with hand drawn animation.
The game follows Noon, a young girl stranded on a drifting city. She soon discovers that her grandmother’s mad ramblings about a giant tidal wave coming to destroy her hometown are true, and now must find a way to stop it to save her humble fishing village.
The Tideshell Keeper‘s puzzles revolve around manipulating water, and deciphering the foreign language used by the inhabitants of the drifting city.
You can find the announcement trailer below.
You can find a rundown of the game (via Steam) below:
After listening to her grandma’s mad stories about the coming of a giant wave, Noon takes her submarine fishing. Unfortunately, she gets her submarine stuck underneath a drifting city and finds herself helplessly lost at sea in an attempt to find her way back to home. Noon discovers that there might be more to her grandmother’s rambling tale about destruction and tidal waves and that she might have the only key to stopping the destruction, a mythical Tideshell.
Follow Noon as she travels through a thousand year old thunderstorm, visits a dried out lake in a desert where fish still swim at night and explores a sunken city.
