Announcing Song of the Deep!
Today we’re announcing Song of the Deep – a brand-new Metroidvania-style underwater adventure. In the game, you follow Merryn, a young girl who is trying to find her father – a fisherman lost to the depths. She builds a rickety submarine to search for him beneath the waves.
You’ll follow Merryn’s submarine on a journey under the sea, exploring an expansive and mysterious world. You’ll discover sunken cities and diabolical puzzles. You’ll upgrade your ship with new abilities powered by a mysterious substance called Tyne. You’ll battle strange creatures who are intent on dragging you further into the depths.
We’ve been secretly working on building this strange and beautiful world and are now excited to share the first glimpse with you!
We’re also happy to say that the game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. No matter which platform you prefer, you’ll be able to purchase the game physically at GameStop stores (you can pre-order it from them now) or you can download it directly from PSN, Xbox Live, or Steam. Song of the Deep launches in Summer 2016 for $14.99.
We’re looking forward to sharing much more from Song of the Deep in the months leading up to launch. In the meantime, you can follow Song of the Deep on Twitter, Like it on Facebook, or discuss in the forums!
Thanks for all of your support of Insomniac and our games!
Hmm, stuff costs money to produce, I suppose. (3 minutes ago)
Yikes Nintendo, this is just DUMB! [url] (7 minutes ago)
heh, just a week from release. i imagined it was still far off. Timed exclusive VR support for PS4 though. Maybe pick it up late then. (30 minutes ago)
Each area of the plantation you explore has a "boss" family member that stalks you throughout, sort of like Nemesis, and they all have their individual traits. (51 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Yeah, that appears to be the setting from the demo, but I've read some moderate spoilers, and it's definitely in tune to what the original game was, design and theme wise, with new elements (53 minutes ago)
Although the contradiction in that is that I don't think I'll want to complete it in VR either. Bad for the heart, and the undercrackers. (54 minutes ago)
i have no idea about the setting. from the videos i've seen of the demo it looks like texas chainsaw massacre style setting with rednecks and inbreed. (55 minutes ago)
