GISH is Alive in the Garage!

Life isn't easy when you're a twelve pound ball of tar.


September 15, 2004 - Eugene, OR - GarageGames announced today the release of GISH on OS X, Linux and Windows. As an amorphous ball of tar that rolls and squishes around, players experience a one-of-a-kind, 2D side-scrolling action-adventure game featuring unique gameplay.

The main character, a ball of tar named Gish, is in search of his beloved Brea, who has been kidnapped by the villainous unknown assailant. His journey deep into the underworld drags the player into an increasingly challenging labyrinth of puzzle-filled levels. Gish is well equipped to manipulate his gelatinous body through dangerous levels filled with deadly spikes and twisted abominations as he solves mind-boggling puzzles and sloshes his way through hours of wild gameplay.

The award-winning game GISH was developed by the indie-game studio Chronic Logic. "We are pumped to be simultaneously releasing on all major platforms,"commented Josiah Pisciotta, one of the developers at Chronic Logic, "and being picked up by GarageGames has expanded our fan base."

While the solo gameplay of GISH is extremely addictive, Chronic Logic has provided the gamer with several other modes of gameplay. GISH also contains a specialized play room in which to practice all the different tar-ball skills of climbing, squishing, sliming and steamrolling. For a change of pace, the developers at Chronic Logic have provided a unique head-to-head competition mode which PCGamer UK calls "a great sticky glob of gaming goodness."

The GISH demo version is available for OS X, Linux and Windows. The full version can be downloaded on sale now for $19.95 from Garagegames.
