Beyond Blue Trailer Unveils Award-Winning Vocal Cast
Beyond Blue, a narrative-driven underwater exploration/adventure game developed and published by E-Line Media, focuses on life below the ocean waves as gamers play scientists testing their “Ocean Sense Network” as they try to map out and better understand the ocean’s depths.

Beyond Blue Unveils an Award-Winning Voice Cast
Explore and uncover the secrets of Earth’s last uncharted frontier
Set against the near-future backdrop of Earth’s oceans, Beyond Blue features the scientific support of real-world exploration and outreach initiative, OceanX, and embracing its minimally invasive exploration techniques. It tells the story of a crew of scientists – led by Akana’s Mirai and Kae-Kazim’s André – who set out to test their “Ocean Sense Network,” which has the power to literally shine a light on the unexplored depths of the ocean as they unravel its endless mysteries.
Focusing on the Western Pacific Ocean amid a large multispecies gathering of cetaceans and other creatures, players will step into the shoes (and flippers) of Mirai, as they use technology to better understand the urgent threats facing these blue depths. At the same time, Beyond Blue will feature never-before-seen footage licensed from BBC Studios’ Blue Planet II, expanding upon the game’s story and educating players about the social and emotional lives of these whales – the creatures with the biggest brains on the planet.
Beyond Blue will be available in late 2019 on PC and select consoles. Want to learn more? Stay tuned, as we’ll have more to share very soon! To learn more about Beyond Blue, visit www.beyondbluegame.com, and follow the journey on Twitter and Facebook.
