One Year Later: Major Content Update

Narcosis debuted one year ago today, so as a 'thank you' to all of you who've taken this journey with us — and those still to come — we've updated the Steam edition of the game with some very exciting extras...

First up: "Raptures of the Deep: A Journey into Narcosis," 15 ambient tracks inspired by our deep-sea survival story, including the eponymous closing theme from celebrated composer Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series).



Also included: "Hell or Highwater: Surviving Oceanova," survivor Kip Mattas' official, first-person account of the catastrophe that captivated the world's attention on the Feb 21, 2021. Previously available only via Amazon, it's now included with the game.



Finally, we've also included the entire accompanying radio interview with Mr. Mattas on Open Air, now downloadable for your on-the-go listening pleasure.



For those of you interested in seeing how deep the game's narrative threads go, we hope you'll enjoy these 'supplementary materials,' which — in conjunction with the game, itself — comprise the "complete Narcosis experience."

Thanks again, and remember: if you've enjoyed your time with our debut title, we hope you'll take a moment to spread the word, or leave a review. Narcosis is a small fish in a mighty big sea, and your support makes a difference.

“...So much more than a few gimmicky jump-scares. A beautifully written, immersive psychological thriller which tells a compelling, tragic story... Narcosis is a shining example of a psychological thriller done right, and a must play for any horror junkie.”
90% – Gaming Trend

“...Well paced and immersive ... Every facet of Narcosis feels singular, from the surprising narrative to the well rendered, unique setting. The foreboding sense of dread and unpredictability makes for one of the most exceptional survival horror gaming experiences.”
8/10 – Modern Horrors

“...a unique experience that grabs you and doesn’t let go until the very end... Narcosis is a triumph, managing to get under your skin and stay there long after you’ve put the pad down.”
8/10 – GameSpew

About This Game

Survival, horror at the sunless depths of the Pacific Ocean: Stranded on the seafloor with low light and few tools, an industrial diver takes desperate steps to surface before his oxygen — and sanity — give out.

This first person survival story unfolds from inside a half-ton, high-tech dive suit — a “walking coffin." Influenced and inspired by a growing appetite for unconventional horror and narrative-driven games, Narcosis is rooted in reality, but steeped in the surreal.

Features:
  • Pressure Kills: High-stress situations accelerate oxygen intake, distorting sight, sound, space and time.
  • Hostile Waters: A knife, flashlight and flares are essential to surviving the nightmarish flora and fauna of the abyss.
  • Phantom Narrative: The survivor’s account unfolds in inexplicable ways alongside the player’s journey.
  • Beyond Good and Evil: No shadowy organizations or eldritch terrors, only primal fears and human limits.
  • Abyssal Ambience: A haunting soundtrack includes a closing theme from celebrated composer Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill series)
  • Terror Verite: Primal fears — darkness, confinement and isolation — take on new levels of immersion when experienced in VR.

About Honor Code:
Based in France and California, Honor Code’s collective resume includes such games and series as Assassin’s Creed, Dead Secret, Metal Gear Solid, Remember Me, Republique, The Silent Age, and Silent Hill.
