“More games need to take place under water,” I always say before reminding myself that the briny depths often play host to some of gaming’s most annoying/irritating/blub-blub-blub-drowwwwning sequences. There really is no better place for unrelenting weirdness and instinctual fear than under the sea, though. I’m pretty sure they said exactly that in the Little Mermaid song. That in mind, I’m pleased to see games like SOMA, We Need To Go Deeper, and now – perhaps most ambitiously of all – Diluvion at least trying to make, as Jules Verne put it in Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, “The Cold Downthereplace” more interesting and less patience-testing. Trailer for this very nicely arted game (it comes from the makers of Ballpoint Universe) in this post’s Cold Downthereplace.
