Frictional Games, the team behind cult scare-fest Amnesia: The Dark Descent, has released the brief snippet of gameplay footage from underwater horror SOMA that it showed off at E3 earlier this month.

"This showcases the player's first encounter with a type of creature that roams this part of the game," the team writes on its blog, "and gives some hints on how to best deal with them.
