Project 'Toxic Sea'

 
 

An explanation from our game designer:
 

 

 

 

 

"This all started because I wanted to play in a virtual mini-sub.
  So I built a test model... and it sort of snowballed!"

 

I began with a blank window and after lots of typing... this had happened.

Proof of concept:

The "fun bits" were starting to emerge and a submarine adventure game was looking like a valid and interesting prospect now.

There are very few submarine games in existence, at the time of writing, and even fewer great ones. I mean, how many can YOU name? There's massive untapped potential in the sub theme, which hasn't been explored in depth. Ironically. A really great sub game can stand out in a very saturated videogame market.

However, building the game in 3D was slow and heavy work. This proof-of-concept prototype had served it's purpose. It was never intended to be a finished product.
