Description

The Deep Sea Trading Company has contracted you to explore a new cave system thought to be rich in valuable mineral deposits.

Unfortunately, you went and crashed your solo submersible in said cave and now need to scavenge around with your convenient minisub drone.

Explore the cave and gather enough materials to fully repair your sub before you run out of oxygen!

Notable Features

  • Procedurally generated cave
  • Ground-breaking react based game UI (this was a bad idea)
  • 80s sci-fi aesthetic
  • Works on mobile! (ok it works on my mobile... poorly... it counts)
  • More than 2 colours! (there are at least 3)

    Really neat game! I included it in part 4 of my Bacon Game Jam 09 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/d94r7aO8Ygg
