What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We're thrilled to involve you in the early stages of our game's development. Early Access allows us to incorporate your valuable feedback, iterate on features, and build a community around our game. Your support helps shape the game and directly contributes to its ongoing development. Join us in our adventure, and with your support behind us, we'll make the Secret of the Deep the best game possible!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We aim to deliver a full version of the game in 2026.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The Early Access version of the game that we'll release in 2024 will contain all of the core features of the complete game. As for the rest of the content, we plan to release it as soon as possible, mainly focusing on adding improvements to the core gameplay and mechanics, more lore background, bug fixes, and additional content suggested by the community feedback.

As of right now, we can reveal that the following content is already in pre-production:
  • Buildings up to Tier 9 with extended functionality.
  • Player’s Equipment up to Tier 9.
  • Additional bosses, side-bosses, and more enemy types in encounters.
  • Expanded combat techniques and spell systems.
  • Additional story quests and side quests.
  • Additional progression and resource management mechanics (Alchemy, Enchanting).
  • Additional cave biomes in the Deep.
  • and more

The final major release would wrap up the game with endgame content and deliver the finished product.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game contains all of the essential features and mechanics mentioned in the About This Game section and the first third of the planned storyline.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes. We will gradually raise the price as we ship new content and features. That being said, all players that purchase the game in its Early Access stage will receive all future content updates up to the full release free of charge.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“At Esanti Games, we believe in the power of community collaboration. We actively seek and value your feedback through various social and direct channels. Our code of conduct is based on transparent and honest communication, which ensures that your input directly shapes the game's evolution.

We hereby invite you to join us in building an experience that reflects the preferences and expectations of the players themselves.”

About This Game

In a world ravaged by wars and plague, a nameless hero arises. You are summoned by Death itself to uncover and fight the darkness lurking in the Deep. Are you strong enough to withstand the corruption and bring hope to the hopeless?

Secret of the Deep takes you on a challenging yet fulfilling path toward the light in this single-player, third-person, action adventure with RPG elements. Immerse yourself in a game dripping with rich atmosphere at every turn.

Weary and battered yet unwavering in resolve, you repeatedly dive into the perilous depths, confronting hordes and navigating the extensive, hazardous terrain in search of precious and scarce resources and, most critically, answers.

After each expedition, you return to a settlement where peace still resides. This is your base camp, serving as a refuge from the oppressive darkness and carnage below – a place to build, and enhance your abilities throughout your entire journey. Take a welcomed break to progress – level up your attributes, upgrade your equipment, and learn what you can while uncovering the tangled web of interlinked faiths, opinions, and ideals.

Then, pick up your sword again and strike at the evil possessing the very roots of the land.

You possess the greatest power of them all – the ability to inspire hope, or take it away. Such an ability can't be underestimated and will play a significant role in your adventure. Be mindful of your actions, others are counting on you.

You'll risk everything while gathering the resources for your adventure, so use them wisely – craft, smelt, trade, upgrade, repair, learn new combat techniques, and discover a variety of spells and blessings. Thoroughness is crucial for your success.

Combine the physical might of a sword in melee combat with the powerful impact of defensive and offensive spells to challenge any enemy you encounter. Strategize, take control of the battlefield, and deliver decisive blows on the journey toward the light.

Bring light to the darkness, shine through the pitch-black Deep, and cleanse the corruption brought upon by unknown horrors and the wills of the gods. Tread carefully, and may your prayers illuminate the dangerous path to salvation.

Your memory is shrouded in fog – you have no idea who you are or what transpired in your past. However, the place you're returning to holds the keys, offering snippets that will guide you to the truth – if you're strong enough to face it.
