Gameplay Revealed for First-Person Narrative Horror Set on an Offshore Oil Rig
The indie title "Still Wakes The Deep" by developer The Chinese Room has offered gamers their first glimpse of gameplay in a return to the first-person narrative horror genre. Set in the bleak backdrop of a 1975 offshore oil rig off the coast of Scotland, the game thrusts players into a harrowing situation. Disaster has struck the Beira D oil rig, cutting off all communication and escape routes, leaving players to navigate the collapsing structure and confront an otherworldly horror on the edge of all logic and reality.
The Chinese Room, renowned for their work on critically acclaimed titles such as "Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs," "Everybody's Gone to the Rapture," and "Dear Esther," is once again leveraging their prowess in world-building, audio, writing, and acting to craft an immersive experience.
"Still Wakes The Deep" presents a gripping narrative as players take on the role of an off-shore oil rig worker fighting for survival in the midst of a vicious storm, perilous surroundings, and the dark, freezing waters of the North Sea.
With no weapons or special powers at their disposal, players must rely on their wits and determination to seek out their crew and help them survive in the face of a relentless and terrifying adversary.
Despite the excitement surrounding the gameplay preview, "Still Wakes The Deep" is yet to receive an official release date, leaving eager gamers waiting in suspense for more details about this atmospheric and intense indie title.
