When not surfing and appearing as extras in Home & Away, the good people of Australia enjoy nothing more than making video games. Submerged, an exploration-focused foray from the wonderfully named Uppercut Games, looks to be one of the better titles to emerge from Down Under in quite some time – although we are disappointed by the apparent lack of Fosters.

The game takes place in a flooded city a million miles away from Melbourne, where you'll take on the role of Miku, a young girl who has brought her badly injured brother to the aquatic area in a small fishing boat. You'll need to scour the location for fresh supplies, with a 'barbie' right at the top of your list. No, actually we made that last part up.

While we're having a larrrf at the PlayStation 4 title's expense, it's actually got some serious pedigree behind it – the developer consists of a bunch of BioShock veterans, for starters. Expect plenty of thick atmosphere and compelling environmental narrative as you sail its sparkling seas, then. The question is: will you be diving headfirst into this release when it deploys on 4th August in North America and 5th August in Europe? Make a splash in the comments section below.
