Oasis Games has announced today that KOI, an beautiful exploration adventure game that follows the quest of a lone Koi fish through an ever-evolving lotus pond, is now available in North America for the PlayStation 4.
Developed by Tianjin-based indie studio Dotoyou, KOI delivers an entrancingly beautiful and imaginative experience that reflects on mankind’s effects on the environment.
KOI, the first Chinese-developed game launched on PlayStation 4 in the West takes players on a seemingly small journey with deeper meaning. Beneath the tranquil waters of the lotus pond lies a world of danger and uncertainty, illuminated by the game’s hypnotic, piano-based score by Chinese artist Zeta 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 deadened twigs can make leaves green again. 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 is available in North America via the PlayStation Store. From April 19, 2016 through April 26, 2016, there will be a 20% discount off the base price of $9.99 and a 40% discount for PlayStation Plus members.
