Insomniac Games has announced Song of the Deep, a "Metroidvania-style underwater adventure".

The title features a non-linear interactive underwater world and an upgradable submarine. It's coming this Summer for $14.99 on PC and consoles.


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!

After they were stuck for forever into making a very generic average shooters, this is really a great news. Looks very interesting.

There is something quite solar jetman about this. Could be the egg shaped ship and the way it moves.

I'm sorry, but their artistic direction sucks. Backgrounds are too messy - lots of colorful objects with no actual details or accents that could breath some life into it. I'm quite fond of this kind of games but judging purely by visual aesthetics SotD looks meh to me. Putting tons of cosmetics on yourself doesn't necessarily make you beautiful you see.

i don't know if he's talking about sunset overdrive (their last game), which while repetitive, i wouldn't call generic...maybe he forgot about that one and was talking about fuse?
