subROV: Underwater Discoveries Press Release
Developer sqr3lab is shouting over the sounds of crashing waves to announce that subROV: Underwater Discoveries, the deep-sea exploration simulation game, is launching into Steam Early Access on December 2, 2022. Soon, players will be able to simulate submarine Remotely-Operated Vehicle (ROV) dives previously completed by real oceanographic institutions, and discover the sights and sounds of Earth’s oceans like never before.
A brand new look at subROV: Underwater Discoveries showcases much of the sea life players will get to survey on their dives, including various species of whales, fish, and corals (some brought to a video game for the first time ever), backed by a beautiful piano arrangement composed by developer and sound designer José Luis González Castro, formerly of Frontier Developments (Elite Dangerous).
“Early Access is just the beginning for subROV: Underwater Discoveries,” said José Luis González Castro, Founder of sqr3lab. “My goal for the game is to have it act as a resource for those who are interested in engaging with deep sea exploration in a fun and approachable way. But for now, I’m really looking forward to getting it into players’ hands.”
In subROV: Underwater Discoveries, players chart unknown regions, sample hydrothermal vents, find shipwrecks, study aquatic species ranging from fish to coral, and more! Experienced through the mysterious depths of the ocean, the game blends realism with intuitive controls to create a truly one-of-a-kind approachable sub simulation. With support from the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences and the Schmidt Ocean Institute, and with partial-funding from a National Science Foundation BIO-OCE grant, players will embark on dives based on real oceanographic expeditions, and experience underwater exploration in a way few people have before.
Key Features of subROV: Underwater Discoveries Include:
- Sim-ply Submarining: Take control of an oceanographic vessel, complete with a full-ocean-depth rated ROV, and an array of advanced tools including sonar, AI-assisted scanner, articulated arm, temperature sensors, landers, sediment cores, and other scientific equipment.
- Choose Your Own Ocean Adventure: Every dive tells a remarkable story. Each dive features loose objectives, but you’re always free to explore to your heart’s content
- Ocean Master(y): The ocean is full of mysteries waiting to be discovered! Rendezvous with ocean buoys and download scientific data and information on new points of interest. Build up your findings gallery, gain experience from completing objectives, and climb your way up the ranks from trainee to Dive Master!
- A View to a Krill: From black corals to glass sponges, chimaeras to sperm whales, there are dozens of aquatic life forms to encounter and study! Each one is accurately modeled — with many being brought to a videogame for the first time ever — to make the diving experience as true to life as possible.
