The latest creation from the strange people at Bossa Studios (Surgeon Simulator, I Am Bread), will soon be upon us. Apparently, it takes place in the same universe as those two games, which is... interesting. Most importantly, the I Am Fish release date has been revealed to be coming very soon--in less than a month on September 16, 2021. It'll be released on Steam, Xbox stores, and Xbox Game Pass for consoles and PC.
“Like many titles Bossa Studios has worked on, I Am Fish started as a prototype that was initially quite difficult, but got some great reactions from people within the studio,” said Luke Williams, lead game designer at Bossa Studios. “For the full game, we knew we wanted to expand it beyond just a fish in a bowl, both mechanically and thematically. I think players will enjoy seeing the precarious situations these fish will get into!”
Players will be taken to "some dark places" as they play through the physics-based action-adventure platformer. You'll follow four fish: Goldfish, Piranha, Flying Fish, and Pufferfish. They are determined to get back together and avoid drying up, which basically means dying when forced outside of their fish bowls/tanks. This will apparently be an easy thing to accomplish as the fish will be rolling across rooftops, through crosstown traffic as they try to reach the ocean.
While the fish can die in grizzly ways, it won't be that big of a deal. Instead of slapping you with a Big Mouth Billy Bass singing a 'Game Over' ditty, you'll be placed back at the most recent checkpoint as you try to navigate through the game's puzzles. To do so, you'll be riding in water carriers such as jars, mop buckets on wheels, and even the occasional pint glass.
If this sounds like something you want to keep your flipper on, be sure to wishlist I Am Fish here. The game will be released on September 16, 2021, on Steam, Xbox stores, and Xbox Game Pass for consoles and PC.
