What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This is, far and away, the biggest project our small team has undertaken. We’ve put nearly four years of development into Depths of Sanity, and ever since we had our first playable build we’ve been bringing the game to festivals, events, and meet-ups to get player feedback to guide the game’s experience.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 really hampered our ability to do this.

Early Access gives us the chance to have players like you meaningfully impact the game’s development in a lot of key ways. Creating a fully underwater metroidvania has been a daunting process, and making sure we’re delivering best we can on the premise - from the environments, to the controls, to the mechanics and the story - is incredibly important to us.

It was our supporters who helped Depths of Sanity evolve from a barely realized tech demo to the game it is today, and we think Early Access is the best way to keep this relationship growing.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We had been finishing the game in chapters, but as of May 2nd 2022, 100% of the game is now fully playable in Early Access, with all mechanics, story elements, boss fights, biomes and secrets now in place for you to experience.

We're anticipating another 6-7 months to add final feedback, general polish, as well as some bonuses that we want the full game to come with. We anticipate the finished game launching in early Fall 2022.”

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

“The final version will contain the full 15-20 hour adventure, a new game+, and potentially a boss rush, along with other great modes and ideas you suggest for us during development.

If you join us while Depths of Sanity is still in Early Access, you'll be able to influence all of the final polish that goes into the game, and you will have secured your copy at a lower price than we will retail at after full release.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“As of May 2nd, 2022, the full game is now complete in Early Access, featuring all gameplay mechanics, story sequences, boss fights, secrets, and more. We will remain in Early Access for another 6-7 months in order to polish the overall experience and add in any important player feedback before we fully launch.”

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

“Yes! The game is currently cheaper to reward those who want to support it early. The game will remain at this price until the full game leaves Early Access, at which point it will go up in price.”

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

“We plan to have a constant communication with our Early Access supporters. In addition to bi-weekly updates that will keep you in the loop on what exactly we’re working on during each sprint, you’ll be able to reach us in a lot of ways, including our discord server, Steam forums, emails, and Twitter. We’ll have more detailed info for how to submit feedback as we get closer to launch.

A big thank you to all of you who choose to support us!”

About This Game

When The Baroness submarine goes dark while investigating a massive vibration deep in the ocean, Abe Douglas, the commander who assembled its crew, makes it his responsibility to find out what happened.

As he plunges into the ocean, he has no idea that what he’ll uncover will not only threaten the lives of his crew, but his own sanity.

Deep, Involving Storyline:

Discover the fate of each crew member of The Baroness and uncover the mystery of the signal coming from the ocean floor.

Massive Interconnected World:

Explore beautiful coral reefs, sunken wrecks, underground magma lairs and much more in your journey to the darkest depths of the ocean.

Search, Scavenge, Stay Alive:

Danger comes from every angle. Unlock a wide variety of weapons to help you battle monstrous bosses, survive tense set-pieces, and uncover secrets that expand the story and your chances of survival.

Danger from Every Angle:

With full 360 degree movement, there are no double jumps or wall runs to help you under the ocean. Use a wide range of unique tools to uncover your environment, including tow lines that help you pull through heavy currents, and a sonar system that helps you navigate through pitch black darkness.
