About

Dive into the future: play as Jupiter and Mars, two dolphins on the adventure of a lifetime!

Jupiter & Mars is an underwater adventure set in a future-Earth in which everything science warned us about has come to pass: sea levels have risen from melting ice caps and climate change. As a result, the coastal cities are all but completely submerged. Since man’s disappearance, the oceans have begun to reclaim themselves, with coral and nearly extinct creatures returning to their once-thriving levels. But the artifacts of man’s once-formidable presence still remain, and an elite race of whales known as the Elders enlist Jupiter and Mars to help neutralize a global network of semi-functioning bases and machines that are disrupting sea life. Along the way, Jupiter and Mars will meet legendary creatures, perform incredible feats, and maybe even live to tell the tale. Jupiter & Mars is being developed in partnership with acclaimed ocean organizations SeaLegacy and The Ocean Foundation, who are providing the game with exclusive content.

Story

Jupiter is a female dolphin with enhanced echolocation powers that lets her see through murky waters, beyond solid objects, and into the heart of the deepest oceans. She’s inquisitive by nature, and a problem solver. Mars is her partner in life, alert and ready for action. They complement each other in more ways than one. In their journeys they meet the Elders, an ancient and powerful race of whales that asks the agile and intelligent dolphins to help them in their quest to shut down the remaining, still-functioning mechanical legacy of mankind’s past.

Gameplay

Echolocation to see in the dark, and an AI dolphin partner.

Use enhanced Echolocation powers to see what lies beneath the surface. Pierce through the murky underwater mystery with a dolphin’s sonar-like capabilities. Use your partner Mars’ Ram ability to get yourself out of tight spots, to bust open a wall, or to pop that oyster shell open and discover hidden secrets throughout the game.
