The PC game was announced at E3 today, and reportedly follows it's titular character on a quest through foreign planets. “It’s been a lot of fun looking over my notes of, ‘OK, like, ‘cave,’ and imagining myself in a cave with glowworms. What does that sound like?” Zauner told Polygon. Though much of the soundtrack will be ambient, Zauner recorded a full band track called "Glider" which is featured in the game's trailer.
