Uppercut Games, the creators of EPOCH. and EPOCH.2, announced today that they’ve been working on a new game using Unreal Engine 4. This one is very different from EPOCH. Instead of a robot cover shooter set in an apocalyptic future, Submerged will be a 3D adventure game. As an adventure fan, this is probably the best news I’ve heard in, like, ever. The screenshots look gorgeous. I want to explore this world right now.
Here’s more information directly from Uppercut Game’s website:
“Submerged is an exploration adventure, where you struggle to save the life of your brother after escaping from a terrible past.
Trapped in an ancient, half-submerged city and desperate for supplies, you must explore the flooded streets in your simple fishing boat, and scale the ruined buildings that hold the promise of salvation.
There is a seductive serenity to this vast city, and even a beauty to its decay. But with every passing day, your brother grows weaker, and the memories of the events that drove you here continue to resurface.
With gorgeous visuals powered by Unreal Engine 4, ethereal music and a world you want to visit, Submerged will drag you under.”
So to sum it up: A 3D third-person adventure game. From the makers of EPOCH. Get excited.
Expect to see Submerged on Mac, PC and mobile devices. No date has been set.
You can follow the development on Uppercut Games’ blog. I’ll also post here as new information is available.
