Reviews

“The time and effort put into developing this game just pours out. The storyline and accompanying strip that provide the backdrop are extremely professional in their own right, and this level has carried forward into the game. We often see new games coming out for the Amiga which lack depth, but this one is like the Mariana Trench! You will need to shut out the world and fully immerse yourself into this in order to get the best experience, but it will be very rewarding. Graphically extremely pleasing and sonically adequate, it's a thoroughly enjoyable ride that will take some time to finish. But even when you complete the story, there is an expansive world to navigate and explore”
— ZZAP! Amiga (Issue 9)

“The ambition of AQUABYSS is truly mind-boggling — the world is vast and although the game is fully released, it's constantly being developed and worked on. Updates are released frequently (not just bug fixes, but new features and content too), sometimes multiple times in a week, so it's well worth getting your Amiga online if you haven't already. The scope of the game is set to keep growing with the online features potentially expanding, which could be very exciting.”
— Amiga Addict (Issue 19)

About This Game


In AQUABYSS, you can follow the protagonist's adventures from the graphic novel or choose your path as a free citizen.
In both modes, you navigate through vast depths, explore, discover underwater cities, trade, upgrade your submarine, acquire new ones, develop your character, have dialogues with NPCs, complete tasks, mine resources from the seabed, face or avoid the dangers lurking in the depths, compare your achievements with other players, or finally meet them online in the chat. This is just a foretaste of what awaits you in the underwater open world of AQUABYSS!

World

The world of AQUABYSS is set underwater in the Victorian steampunk era of the early 19th century. All the major trade and communication is done via submarines. As a player, you command your vessel and freely choose how to explore that world - by trading, mining seabed resources, fighting pirates and krakens, or fulfilling contracts or tasks taken from NPCs. But your submarine is not the only medium helping you make a reputation and verns, the underwater currency. It's also an RPG system that allows you to develop useful attributes of your character.
