Harold Halibut is a narrative adventure set on a city-sized spaceship submerged in an alien ocean, after fleeing the Earth 2050 years ago. It's beautifully created with real puppetry and fully voice-acted. The result is a filmic adventure where you discover not only a fantastic world, but real people dealing with life not-as-it-was-supposed-to-be.

You play Harold, a young lab assistant on the ship who dreams of leaving the planet and returning to earth. You explore the vibrant retro-future world, talk with inhabitants, and work on fixing things by operating the complex machinery.

Although you ache for a real home, most of the ship’s inhabitants have reconciled themselves to a life lived aboard the sunken vessel. As you find support for your plans you make friends with the weird, wonderful and diverse people aboard. Until one fateful encounter plunges you into a new world that nobody could have guessed existed - and that may hold the key to re-launching the ship and getting home.
