Not every game has to be about action, orcs, and nuclear warheads: Submerged introduces a much simpler premise, in which siblings Miku and Taku embark upon an adventure in a mysterious flooded city. With the latter of the duo injured, it's down to you to plunder this strange aquatic settlement for supplies – using little more than a boat and your best intentions.
As you progress, you'll learn more about the curious Atlantis around you. "The gameplay is designed with no failure states: play at your own pace, safe in the knowledge that you'll never die," explained Ed Orman of developer Uppercut Games on the PlayStation Blog. "It all adds up to create a relaxing, mysterious adventure that everyone can enjoy."
The game's due out on the PlayStation 4 later this year, and we must say that our interest has been piqued. We doubt that the slow flow of the release will appeal to everyone, but the Unreal Engine 4-powered presentation looks stunning – and we like the idea of an adventure where your only real goal is to explore. We look forward to learning more.
