Once you beat it, there's nothing really to do. The sandbox mode was really disapointing because you cannot just create whatever you want. You would have to find coins in the survival mode to spend. I've had it for like a year or two now and haven't played it since.

The game is pretty short but I thought it was really engaging and fun to play. The environment has some limitations and the graphics aren't amazing but all in all I thought it was well worth the time and $$

Wanted an underwater builder/explorer game. Bought an underwater builder/explorer game. Played an underwater builder/explorer game.

Enjoyed it's somewhat detailed and yet somewhat simple design. Enjoyed it's price. Enjoyed ease of building.

10/10 would get attacked by barracuda's again.

It's not a bad game, but there's almost nothing to do. It takes maybe 4 hours to complete, if you go slowly, and one you finish, there's pretty much nothing to do. There's little reason to replay it, and the only reason I play it at this point is because I don't have Subnautica yet. It's definitely worth what I bought it for though, which probably equates to a few cents(I got it on HumbleBundle). Definitely not a bad game, but it was essentially abandoned.

while the dev has concided this game to be complet and finished it is still lacking and has a lot of room for improvent also it needs more things to do/build for the sandbox portion of it to be worth playing the storyline part is good but once you play through the story line realy the only thing left to do is sandbox and the lack of stuff to do in sandbox makes it not worth it

It was fun... Until you figure out that if you hit things with a knife soon enough you are practically invincible. Not much cool stuff to craft. I appreciate the work that went into this game though, I'd recomend subnautica.

DON'T BUY THIS GAME! REALLY ♥♥♥♥ EARLY ACCESS, WHICH ONLY WANT YOUR MONEY AND THEN THEY DEVELOPERS DESAPEARED!!!! I hate this kind of "early access". If you want a really survival ocean game buy SUBNAUTICA! Tons of content, constantly updating and adding new freatures.

Beat the game in two hours and saw everything there was to see. It was fun, and for the price I paid ($1), well worth it. However the extreme lack of content prevents any further play. Play a better game though, "sub nautica" or "from the depths". Also base deconstruction is a bit buggy.

First off, let me begin by saying that I have a deep seated fear of the ocean. Even games like this terrify me. I also love being scared. Not that this is a horror game, mind you. This game terrified me, in a good way. I enjoyed playing it at first. However, as I began to get used to the game and discovered my objective, I began to become less and less satisfied. Overall, it has the feel of a game that is unfinished.

The premise of the game is this: You are a deep sea diver who's submarine has crashed in the middle of the ocean. Your objective is to find all nine pieces of your submarine and return to the surface. Pretty interesting, at least to me. It took me two days to complete the game. Even with the randomly generated map, I am confident that it would take me only two hours at the most to finish the game again, now that I am aware of what I am doing. Some might pose the question, "Well why don't you take time to enjoy the building and gathering of resources." The game offers no point in doing so. You can build various items, from diving gear to tables and stools. However, this is extremely limited. There are literally two decorative furniture items for indoors. There isn't much else. There's no point in using the chair and stool for asthetic when you can't even create other things. You can make a lamp and a door. Add some glass walls, etc. But that is it. It really lessens the use of the resources. You don't need a bigger house, because there is nothing to put in it. The most I began using the resources for in the end were for ammunition. *SPOILER* I didn't even build the supercharged drill or whatever the name of the device was. There was no point. I cannot stress enough how little there was to do. And collecting the submarine pieces may seem like a bit of a challenge, but the map literally tells you where they all are.

When the download began, it only took about three minutes, so I didn't expect much in terms of graphics. But when I entered the game I was surprised. It was beautiful. It was so calm and serene to watch the manta rays swimming above me, to hear the whales echoing in the distance, and terrifying to watch the tail of a shark jet out into the fog. There was a handful of different creatures for me to meet, and feast upon, and it all moved so beautifully. The simplicity of the graphics simply seemed to credit the beauty. That's why I am so disappointed in everything else. I really wish they had worked a little harder on this. From what I recall there was quite a bit of hype when this game first appeared, but it seems the creator just shelled this out in all the excitement. Overall, I wouldn't reccomend it for the price it is at. It'd probably be a good game for children to play as, for them, it would be a bit more complicated and hard.Otherwise, don't get it.

Fun 3/5, Originality 2/5, Graphics 4/5, Maturity 3/5, Worth the price? 2/5 (I give a two instead of a one due to the quick download and interesting graphics)

This isn't just a poor mans Subnautica, this is a homeless guys Subnautica. In two to three hours you'll see everything there is to see and by the end you can reallly feel the point at which the Dev must have thrown their hands in the air and walked away. There is no real reason to build another base. There's barely even any reason to expand the base. I invested some time into expanding to include a storage room and extended hallways between two of my initial harvesting spots, only to realize some time later that the second-tier resources and gear would have only taken minutes to find past getting the first round of equipment, the third just barely past that. You'll be tasked with finding the 9 pieces of your broken submarine if you play adventure or survivor mode, and that is where you'll spend three hours scavenging to get yourself to the surface. In sandbox mode you'll still build and see everything in those few hours, but with the goal removed and the option to buy starting items with mysterious boxes of gold coins that show up in Adventure and Survival.

There's a lot of potential here, and it reminds me of Minecraft in alpha, but that's not a compliment for a finished game. It isn't especiallly pretty, and the uninspired, low-res graphics don't get anywhere close to earning the title of stylized. It's just... bland. The graphics are bland, the gameplay is bland, the crafting is bland. There's so little meat to this game and whats available is barely palatable. The developer has another survival/crafting game called Sky Break that looks like it may get a little more polish... but if they walked away from this game in its current state I'd be concerned about what gets left on the table for that one.

Bought this game when it first came out and ever since then i was hoping that there will be more things added to the game after a couple months but sadly that wasnt the case. Played the game for a couple hours beat it then got bored. This lacks so much content, Subnautica has alot more things in it and devs still adding more stuffs.
