Umihara Kawase Returns to Steam

Umihara Kawase Returns to Steam

Feb 5, 2016 – Degica is pleased to announce that they have  teamed up with Studio Saizensen to bring the beloved physics-based puzzle/platformers of the Umihara Kawase Trilogy back to Steam.

Fans asked, and the developer has delivered! Umihara Kawase Trilogy’s wonderfully bizarre fishing/grappling-hook platforming was missing from Steam… and now it’s back! For those not in the know, Umihara Kawase Trilogy features Umihara Kawase, Umihara Kawase Shun Steam Edition, and Sayonara Umihara Kawase. These three puzzle/platformer games tell the tale of a girl named Umihara Kawase who uses a fishing hook as a grappling hook. You’ll need quick reflexes to swing your
way through the branching surreal environments. Use your brains to figure out the best way through. They say fish is brain food. You’re going to need it!

Face fish-like enemies, conveyor belts, spikes, watery pits, time travel and more. Collect items, and find your way to the end of each level. The deeper into this dream-like world that you venture, the more challenging the solutions and the greater the time pressure becomes. Along the way, look out for shortcuts and secret exits, and unlock bonus levels.

The elasticity of Umihara’s fishing line sets the Umihara Kawase Trilogy apart from other games, giving unprecedented levels of mobility and discovery. Tightening the line or giving lots of slack can be the difference between success or failure. The elastic nature of the fishing line allows the player to stretch down to otherwise unreachable areas or be catapulted upwards.

Umihara Kawase Features:

  • Physics-based puzzle/platforming that challenges your reflexes and brainpower
  • Extreme elastic fishing-line physics give you advanced control
  • Many stages with branching paths across three complete games
  • Steam Workshop support in all three games for sharing replays
  • Four playable characters (in Sayonara Umihara Kawase)
  • Face giant, aquatic bosses like a tadpole, a seahorse, and more
  • Steam Achievements, Trading Cards, Leaderboards, and Cloud Saving
  • Full Steam controller support for all three games (optional)

You can now download Umihara Kawase Trilogy for PC on Steam.
