Gibbon: Beyond the Trees is a hand-drawn adventure following a lost gibbon as they embark on a dangerous journey into unknown lands. Race to freedom in liberation mode, or play through an hour-long narrative that captures the real struggle of living creatures around the world. Master the gibbon’s art of brachiation (swinging from branch to branch) at high speed, building momentum, pulling off spectacular somersaults, and launching yourself higher and further into the air with the help of your fellow Gibbons, feeling the thrill and exhilaration of life in an untamed jungle. Despite taking creative liberties, the game is heavily informed by and based on real-world issues. While it is set in Southeast Asia, the topics covered are globally interconnected. It was made in collaboration with locals and experts to ensure the subject matter was handled respectfully and accurately with appropriate representation.
