Submerged is a third-person combat-free game in which you explore a mysterious flooded city and discover the beauty of desolation in vast outdoor environments. You take on the role of Miku, a young girl who has brought her wounded brother to the city in their small fishing boat. Navigate the flooded city streets by boat, scale the drowned buildings, and use your telescope to scour the city for the supplies needed to save your dying sibling. As you explore the city at your own pace, you encounter the habitat that flourishes in this colorful place and discover hidden objects that piece together the story of a broken world and a broken family.

Game Features

- Vast outdoor environments with a rich, colorful and vibrant habitat present the player with a beautiful place to linger during the day or night, and encounter the mysterious remnants that watch you from the rooftops.

- A serene and relaxing game experience; take your time to enjoy the sunrise and beautiful vistas, listen to the sound of the ocean, or observe the playfulness of the creatures that inhabit this place. There is only one pace in this game and that’s your own.

- Discover the hidden objects that piece together the story of redemption, sacrifice and determination, and learn more about how the city came to be this way.

- Cruise through the city streets in your small powered fishing boat, using your telescope to identify which of the various buildings contain supplies and mark them on your map.

- Discover the best path to the objects you spotted from afar. Dock your boat at tall buildings and landmarks and climb the vines, ladders, ledges and pipes as increasingly difficult navigation puzzles.

- Developed by an independent studio based in Australia, consisting of AAA veterans who have previously worked on the BioShock series, with music from BAFTA award winning composer Jeff van Dyck.

Editors’ Notes

An adventure game without combat? Those are rare, and that’s what fascinated us about Submerged. Instead of battling for every inch, we took our time, exploring the mysterious flooded city for supplies and scaling tricky obstacles. An intriguing story emerges, but what we loved most was zipping from place to place in the boat—it’s just fun to drive!

HORRIBLE Controls!!!

I still cannot understand why some developers refuse to include a virtual joystick in their games! The whole “touch to move” and “touch to stop” thing is terrible. Touching the screen and then moving it around to control the character’s direction is awful in almost all games, and this one is no exception. Then there’s the climbing thing where you have to swipe in the direction you want to climb. It’s terrible too. I got stuck on a wall because no matter how much I swipe the character just stands there looking around like she’s confused. I ended up closing the game 3 minutes into playing it because of the horrible controls.

Please give this game a virtual joystick so we can have true control of the characters movements. Also, fix the climbing. Using a virtual joystick, we should be able to just point it up in the direction we want to climb, and the character should start climbing.

I can see what they were going for but disappointing

I wish I hadn't spent the money. I think the developers bit off more than they can chew with this game. The graphics look pretty old which is acceptable because of the platform but thats why you have to work with what you're making for. Movement is awful. Playing it just makes me want to play a better game. Everything looks the same. There's no spoken lines almost anywhere. The collectibles have no written info only pictures for me this makes it semi uninteresting. Feels like a demo more than anything else and I'm disappointed in the App Store for recommending such a sub par game.
