Hello! We are Out of the Blue Games, an independent game studio from Madrid, Europe. On December 8th, we released our first title Call of the Sea, a personal and moving first-person puzzle adventure in which you play as Norah Everhart, a woman who crossed an ocean in search of her missing expedition. husband.
Everything has been great since then, reviews, reviews, awards… We’re really happy with the way things are going with Call of the Sea, so we wanted to make sure it reaches as many players as possible.
So we definitely had to bring Call of the Sea to PlayStation! The game will be available on PS4 and PS5 tomorrow, May 11.
And what will PlayStation players find in Call of the Sea? To sum up, it’s a love letter to puzzle games and Lovecraftian stories set in the Pacific in the 1930s.
The exploration of the lush island on which Nora is located is guided by the game’s narrative and its puzzles. These are hidden throughout the environment and need to be resolved to discover more of the game world and its history. Your journey will take you through and below the island, getting to know her and Norah’s needs as a character. All supported by a magnificent instrumental soundtrack composed by Eduardo de la Iglesia.
But Call of the Sea is no ordinary puzzle game. We wanted to associate each puzzle with each emotion that Norah feels and experiences while keeping it closely linked to the story. In this way, the player experiences Norah’s initial fascination with the island, and fear for her husband’s well-being as he progresses, as well as amazement at the strange events and landscapes that she discover in the most isolated places of the island (and which are beautifully rendered by Unreal Engine 4). Call of the Sea is not only a thrilling thirties pulp adventure, but also a woman’s journey of self-discovery.
Call of the Sea is a Lovecraftian game, but neither is it a conventional Lovecraftian game. While most of HP Lovecraft’s stories deal with a passive subject that descends into madness, Call of the Sea tells the story of a resolute woman with mental health, in a story that revolves around accepting its true nature.
While you play Call of the Sea, you will have the pleasure of listening to the talented actress Cissy Jones (Firewatch, The Walking Dead) develop a breathtaking and breathtaking performance by Norah Everhart.
We hope you embark on an emotional journey and immerse yourself in a living mystery to unlock the strange secrets of the past that the island holds and what you may discover in your quest for your true self. We hope you enjoy Call of the Sea.
