GameStop is making its debut as a gaming publisher with Song of the Deep. Created alongside none other than Insomniac Games, the studio behind acclaimed titles such as Ratchet & Clank, this 2D platformer promises an action-packed journey -- and there are stunning visuals to boot. Song of the Deep's story wraps around a girl's search for her missing father, through an underwater adventure that will require you to explore and use discovery skills to accomplish your goal.

It's not clear whether GameStop gave any creative input to the project , but we can't imagine it was much, if any. The company's CEO, Paul Raines, said couple of years ago that it wouldn't interfere with game development. "We love to play games, and unlike our competitors all we do is gaming," he told TIME in an interview about GameStop's venture into publishing. "But we will not be involved in the artistic or creative process. That's not really our domain."

Song of the Deep will hit PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC later this summer for $15. Until then, enjoy the trailer released today.
