Jupiter & Mars | Featured ImageIt may be Earth Day, but that hasn’t stopped Tigertron from making an announcement about Jupiter & Mars. Having just released in North America today (EU/Asia following tomorrow), Jupiter & Mars is an eco-centric PlayStation 4 title which also offers full VR support. Tigertron’s Creative Director, James Mielke, has been involved with a number of award-winning titles in the past, including games like Child of Eden and Lumines Electronic Symphony. Mielke notes that his team wants this game to “stimulate discussion and share a positive message”, one of hope for a brighter tomorrow. A brief description of the title can be found in the quoted text below.

A story about restoring life in the oceans, Jupiter & Mars follows the exploits of two bottlenose dolphins—Jupiter and Mars—who travel a post-mankind world at the request of an ancient race of whales known as ‘The Elders,’ to shut down the still-active machines of mankind, which are making the oceans uninhabitable for sea life.

Jupiter & Mars takes players on an unforgettable journey through an ocean landscape that’s engulfed many of the Earth’s great cities from sea levels rising.

Jupiter & Mars is a labor of love that took the team at Tigertron two years to develop. It involved participation from creators around the world and inspired collaboration with environmental groups like SeaLegacy and The Ocean Foundation. In addition to these groups providing unlockable, educational content for the players, Tigertron has stated that it will be donating a portion of all sales to ocean related causes. Jupiter & Mars is currently listed on the North American PlayStation Store for $24.99. If you’d like to learn more about the game, head to Tigertron’s official website.
