The demo, which is now available on Steam and PlayStation 5, showcases the first day of Alo's month-long journey of self-discovery and grief. The game is a slice-of-life, coming-of-age story that explores themes of isolation, friendship, and grief.

Players can video call loved ones, work as a video editor, solve unpacking puzzles to rediscover childhood memories, and practice self-care tasks. The choices made by the player will lead to a unique journey of self-discovery with branching paths and multiple endings.

The game features hand-drawn pixel art and a cozy lofi soundtrack. It has been praised by critics for its visual complexity, engaging gameplay, and sensitive handling of difficult subject matter. The developers, Rhea Gupte and Prateek Saxena, will be showcasing the game and discussing their influences and development experience as part of LudoNarraCon on Steam on May 9th, 2024.

Fishbowl is a warm and cozy story about living in isolation, nurturing friendships, and understanding grief.
