I’d like Hidden Deep extra if it wasn’t for the monsters. It’s a 2D game about descending into caverns beneath the ocean and utilizing physics, ropes, and devices to chart your means by way of. This is a game I strongly need to play. But then, there are additionally horrible, gristly beasts that can rip you and your squad into chunks, and I’m a large wuss.
If you are braver than I, there’s a demo you’ll be able to play now, and a latest trailer under.
This specific trailer was exhibiting this week through the Future Games Show, though most (all?) of the footage is previous.
Fixing ropes to cavern partitions and ziplining throughout chasms? Yes. Using drones to map the scale and form of adjoining caverns? Yes. Doing all this in a relentless horror environment earlier than having my fingers bit off by a disguised monster? No, no, no, no no.
Although a co-op mode is “being thought of” in line with the Steam web page, proper now Hidden Deep is a singleplayer game. You management your crew of courageous souls both straight or by giving orders, and you may must coordinate their actions if you are going to survive. There are two modes to play – a story mode with handcrafted ranges, and a survival mode the place the degrees are randomised. I’ll cross my fingers for a “peaceable spelunking mode” someday down the road.
You can seize the Hidden Deep demo from the game’s Steam web page. The full game is aiming for launch later this yr.
