The creators of Dear Esther are back with a new narrative horror title

Still Wakes the Deep is an upcoming narrative horror game developed by The Chinese Room, the acclaimed studio behind Dear Esther and Everybody's Gone to the Rapture.

With a reputation for delivering atmospheric and emotionally-driven experiences, The Chinese Room has once again captured the attention of gamers and critics alike with their latest project.

Set in an eerie metallic environment, Still Wakes the Deep promises to immerse players in a chilling and thought-provoking tale.

Let's delve into the details and discover what makes this game so intriguing.

Set in 1975, disaster has struck the Beria D oil rig off the coast of Scotland. You are an off-shore rig worker, fighting for his life through an unrelenting storm. All lines of communication have been severed. All exits are gone. All that remains is to face the unknowable horror that’s come aboard. Search for your crew and help them survive if you can. Run, climb, and swim through the flooding corridors and storm-lashed outer decks. Face a terrifying, unrelenting foe. And pray that, one day, you get to see your family again.

The Chinese Room has a stellar reputation for world-building, audio, writing, and acting that delivers some of the best atmospheric narrative games the industry has to offer, and Still Wakes the Deep seems to be a perfect showcase of this.

With no weapons, no powers, just your wits and determination, you must make it out alive. Struggle for survival on an unstable oil rig, where one wrong step could be your last. Where everything you know becomes a thread, and every noise fills you with dread, will you be able to keep your cool?
