Ludum Dare 38: The Deep

“The Deep” by RAC7 Games (Jesse Ringrose & Jason Ennis) & Gordon McGladdery.

“Take command of one of our state of the art mining vessels today! Learn new skills such as navigation[.] Enjoy friendly messages from headquarters, each and every day[.] You’ll have a blast using our exciting Advanced Drilling System™[.] Master the art of docking, loading, and even unloading[.] We guarantee there will be almost no Leviathan attacks[.]”

I’m simply a sucker for any game which tries to synchronize analogue movements with the game mechanics – especially the rotating of the various wheels of the submarine feels amazing to me! That in combination with the neat art style and the great audio design is an absolute plus for me.

Also the atmosphere in “The Deep” is quite interesting. Your employer can be your best friend or your worst enemy (besides the Leviathans, of course). If you’re doing great work, then everything is fine… But don’t you dare to make a mistake, or the letters won’t be so sweet anymore. Try it for yourself! >>PLAY
