All the talk right now is for Elden Ring, one of the hardest games of the year. Think of Submerged as an anti-Elden ring as it might be the easiest.
hats are not an insult but move on now if the absence of a challenge causes you a problem.
Australian studio Uppercut Games created the flooded city of Submerged with its initial release in 2015. But due to technical problems and apparent lack of depth, it sank without a trace. Hidden Depths revives the idea of leisurely exploring a drowned wilderness, and it’s a sequel that has learned many lessons.
Two siblings, one with mysterious powers, search for a new home after a biblical flood and stumble upon this abandoned city in the grip of an evil force. With no way left as the waves crash against the remaining ruins, the pair use their trusty sailboat to navigate from place to place, searching for answers and questions. The golden seed will bring the city back to life.
The depths hide a dazzling beauty, the ruined masonry is overgrown with digital flowers, the floors of each building are dotted with the remains of recent civilization. A subtle environmental message pervades all, reminding us of the future if climate change goes unchecked.
Seasoned players who are used to slashing and ramping up Elden Ring or any other big budget game will find Submerged’s style too appropriate. The siblings spend most of their time on the quest running on light platforms with only light puzzles to slow their progress. Even with auto jump activated and no enemies exist to block the way.
But that’s exactly the point of Hidden Depth, encouraging players to linger and take their time as they search for this abandoned landscape. The run time may be no more than four hours but the extensive collection will last it for finishers by as little as a third.
In the end, there are no great revelations here, no game evolution, and no fear of dying because your reaction time or finger dexterity isn’t fast enough. The hidden depth will especially appeal to younger gamers because of its forgiving nature, but perhaps some of the tested Elden Ring veterans should give it a chance to calm burning synapses. their.
