Ever since Irrational, it seems like just about every interesting new project that pops up is from a team of former Bioshock developers; take, for instance, the intriguing third-person adventure Submerged from Uppercut Games, which is coming to Steam on August 4.
Set in a world where the oceans have swallowed up the land, the game casts you as a young girl called Miku, who must explore a flooded city in search of medical supplies for her wounded brother. It's a non-combat game that's more about spectacle and exploration than action.
"Navigate the flooded city streets by boat, scale the drowned buildings, and use your telescope to scour the city for the supplies needed to save your dying sibling," explains Uppercut's Ed Orman over on the. "As you explore the city at your own pace, you encounter the habitat that flourishes in this colorful place and discover hidden objects that piece together the story of a broken world and a broken family."
As you can see from the trailer above, this is a very pretty little game. Jeff Van Dyck's score apparently won Best Audio at this years Freeplay Festival, and the game makes efficient use of the Unreal 4 engine. It all looks fairly intriguing
When August 4 comes around you'll be able to grab the game. There's been no word on pricing just yet.
