Before Oil coming out next week, the people of Devolver Digital have decided to release a new historical trailer for the game. We have seen and heard things about the game since the end of 2018, as the game has been under development for a long time and even postponed the release date back to January 28 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, as we approach the official release of the game this coming Thursday, we are given a better look at the story behind the game. This particular trailer will give you some of your hints about the wonders that await you in the land of Terraphage. Learn about the catastrophic circumstances that befell the penniless and now stranded Lord Faraday, and finally see how his fate changed course after a chance meeting with the mysterious Lady Olia. Enjoy the trailer below!
Oil is a game about finding Faraday, a shipwrecked man who then finds himself in the mysterious land of Terraphage.
