A metroidvania-style action-adventure game.
Today, Insomniac Games took the wraps off of their newest project, 'Song of the Deep.' As expected, this is 2D game (with some 3D artwork), and in fact the player controls a submarine in a metroidvania exploration style environment. Already, we're seeing that there will be times in the game when the player leaves the sub.
'Song of the Deep' is coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game is being positioned at the $14.99 price point, and is, in a surprising turn, being funded in part by Gamestop. Naturally, the game will have physical copies sold through Gamestop.
Merryn waits all night for her father to return from his fishing voyage. He never does. After a vivid dream showing her father trapped under the sea, Merryn is determined to save him. This unlikely heroine builds a small submarine from spare parts and sets off to rescue him. Along the way, she'll make friends, discover lost civilizations and ruins, and upgrade her submarine to explore even deeper. The terrain and monsters of the deep are daunting, but Merryn's courage, intelligence, and love for her father will help her overcome adversity.
'Song of the Deep' is due out this summer.
