Harold is coming to PAX Prime later this month. And not just like some dude. It's also the name of indie dev Moonspider Studio's first game.
The game has you controlling a guardian angel, overlooking a gangly, clumsy Harold as he enters a wacky race to the finish. Being a guardian angel, of course, means you have powers. You'll be able to manipulate the environment and help give Harold access to different paths, all while sabotaging the course for Harold's opponents. See, prayer can win games!
While we'll have to wait until PAX to get hands-on with the game, it's shaping up to be quite lovely. Moonspider claims that their artists have worked at Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Studio Ghibli, and more. "These talented individuals are utilizing all of their experiences to help make Harold one of the most visually stunning video games ever created," the announcement claims.
Harold will be available on PC and consoles next year, but here's a look at it.
