Oasis Games Invites Players on a Mesmerizing Journey Filled with Beauty, Adventure and Reflection
To introduce KOI, the company has released a trailer presenting the tenacious koi moving through a world of simple beauty, meditative adventure and lurking danger. Additionally, the official website launched today sharing more of the alluring world in KOI: www.koips4.com .
KOI takes players on a seemingly small journey with deeper meaning. In doing so, players will release the delicate koi from the darkness that has engulfed them from the waters tainted by man by solving challenging puzzles, retaining enchanting melodies found within the leaves of branches amongst other missions in this spiritual odyssey. The artfully depicted world of the lotus pond can be explored and navigated, and in the process of collecting items and solving puzzles, the pond will be purified and made better. Waters can be cleansed, nascent flowers can be opened and threats can be transformed into positive elements. As the koi travels through unknown waters, players enjoy a journey of reflection and contemplation. Completing mini games also unveil layers of the story as players flow through the waters.
“KOI will take players on an meaningful adventure of beauty and growth that will touch both hearts and sprits,” said Alen Wu, business director at Oasis Games. “As one of the first Chinese developers for the PlayStation®4, we hope to bring console gamers an experience that is fresh and new; a game that reinvigorates the spirit while providing entertainment for players of all ages.”
Beneath the tranquil waters of the lotus pond lies a world of danger and uncertainty, illuminated by the game’s hypnotic, piano-based score at every twist and turn. The devoted koi will face dangers from raging currents to deadly predators and spiky barriers. But by blooming flowers to purify the pond, threats can become beauty: dark predator fish can become harmless koi friends and melodies hidden in spiky twigs can turn them into green, healthy leaves. KOI is the game that asks players a simple question: Can you bring purity to a lotus pond, and in so doing, bring happiness and peace to your mind?
KOI for PlayStation®4 will be published by Oasis Games in North America, and is developed by Tianjin-based indie studio, Dotoyou. Previously released on mobile with positive accolades and awards, KOI will bring tranquility on the PlayStation®4 system when it releases this Spring.
