About This Game

A mobile research facility exists deep down in the ocean where scientists from all over the world study the ecology of creatures ranging from the euphotic zone down to the aphotic zone to carve the path open to deep sea exploration and understanding. After not hearing from the facility for months, a rescue team is sent by submarine to investigate. When the team finds a lead, the submarine is hit by a sudden force. A lone diver manages to escape through a bathysphere and crashes down onto the sea floor...

Explore the Depths
Descend into the ocean, where you’ll journey through various zones, from the sunlit surface zone to the twilight zone and finally the aphotic zone where monstrosities of the deep exist.

Prey vs Predator
Encounter a diverse range of creatures, where every encounter presents a unique challenge that requires you to adapt your skills and equipment in order to survive in tense environments.

Revelations from Within
Your only company are the scattered documents found throughout revealing the true nature of the world engulfing you. Gather information about the horrific experiments conducted and creatures lurking in the dark watching your every move.

Suit Up
Equipped with a powerful flashlight and your trusty diving knife, you’ll illuminate the dark waters around you, while using the blacklight feature to reveal hidden clues and solve puzzles, and defend yourself against aggressive predators and destroy key objects to complete encounters.

NOTE: Aphotic Descent was developed by a team of students, and we greatly appreciate any feedback you may have!
