Submerged Announced for PS4, Trailer Reveals the Flooded City & Main Characters

April 24, 2015 Written by Jason Dunning

Developed by Uppercut Games, Submerged is an exploration-adventure game coming to the PlayStation 4 later this year.

Taking place in a city that has become mysteriously flooded and overgrown, Submerged follows the story of siblings Miku and Taku, who, as you can see in the trailer, arrived in this place by boat. Carrying her wounded brother Taku to shelter, Miku must start gathering supplies to nurse him back to health.

To find those supplies, Miku will have to explore using her boat and telescope, locate the items, and climb crumbling buildings to get them. Throughout the game, Miku discovers secrets of the city where its only inhabitants appear to be malformed copies of the native sea-life, and we’ll also learn about what brought Miku and Taku towards it.

Running on Unreal Engine 4, Ed Orman of Uppercut Games says, “The gameplay is designed with no failure states: play at your own pace, safe in the knowledge that you’ll never die. It all adds up to create a relaxing, mysterious adventure that everyone can enjoy.”
