Harold Halibut, the game about making friends while trapped in a giant spaceship stranded at the bottom of an alien ocean, now has a demo on Steam

Harold Halibut is one of the more intriguing videogame ideas I’ve seen in a while. It’s “a handmade narrative game about friendship and life on a city-sized spaceship submerged in an alien ocean,” which is interesting in its own right. But it also employs a stop-motion visual style reminiscent of games like The Neverhood or Armikrog, or (for those of a certain age) those classic 1960s holiday movies. We got a closer look at Harold Halibut at the PC Gaming Show in 2023, and now you can take a piece of it for a spin courtesy of the demo that’s now available on Steam.

The demo promises about 1.5 hours of gameplay from the very beginning of Harold Halibut, although developer Slow Bros. said some people have needed twice that time to get through it. It’s a chunky demo, clocking in at 54GB—that’s bigger than Elden Ring—but Slow Bros. said the mondo gigs are necessary “because we wanted to keep the full 4K quality.”
