Uppercut Games has announced a brand new exploration adventure game, Submerged, that will be coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year.
Submerged seems to be the latest in the new line of games that de-emphasize combat or aggression as the primary mode of interaction with the game world. Instead, the focus seems to be on actually exploring and appreciating the world around you, and interacting with it in other, more non violent ways.
“Submerged is a serene adventure set in a city that has mysteriously become flooded and overgrown,” said Uppercut Games’ Ed Orman. “It follows the story of siblings Miku and Taku — the pair arrive in this strange place in a boat, and Miku has to carry her wounded brother Taku to shelter before she can start gathering the supplies she’ll need to nurse him back to health. But to do that, she’ll have to find the supplies first! She will have to explore using her boat and telescope, locate the forgotten caches, then climb the crumbling buildings to retrieve them.”
It also seems like a lot of impressive talent is involved in the making of the game.
“We use Unreal Engine 4 to create the gorgeous graphics that you see above,” Orman said. “We’ve enlisted BAFTA-Award Winner Jeff Van Dyck to provide the musical score. The gameplay is designed with no failure states: play at your own pace, safe in the knowledge that you’ll never die. It all adds up to create a relaxing, mysterious adventure that everyone can enjoy.”
