Product Description

Story Overview

Merryn waits all night for her father to return from his fishing voyage. He never does. After a vivid dream showing her father trapped under the sea, Merryn is determined to save him. This unlikely heroine builds a small submarine from spare parts and sets off to rescue him. Along the way, she'll make friends, discover lost civilizations and ruins, and upgrade her submarine to explore even deeper. The terrain and monsters of the deep are daunting, but Merryn's courage, intelligence, and love for her father will help her overcome adversity.

Music

Song of the Deep's atmosphere of loneliness and wonder is brought forth emotionally through its music.

Gorgeous underwater world

Set in a gorgeous underwater world, players take on the role of Merryn in her quest to find her father. With a rickety submarine, Merryn will explore the vast ocean depths in this side-scrolling Metroidvania-style adventure game. Song of the Deep delivers unique gameplay in a tale of love, heartbreak, and triumph.

Explore a fantastic non-linear interactive underwater world, from ruins to boneyards to gardens. Every corner of the ocean offers a new surprise.

Upgrade your submarine with new abilities to access new areas of the sea, and combine your abilities in surprising ways like catching a torpedo with your claw arm.

  • Outwit, outmaneuver, and battle creatures along the way, from lantern jellies to giant bosses.
  • Experience an unforgettable journey: A powerful tale about a daughter defying impossible odds to search for her father.

Character Overviews

Merryn

Defined by courage, resilience and intelligence. She is alone and vulnerable in a very dangerous world, but she will not give up. She knows she is up against seemingly impossible obstacles but she believes in her ability to somehow find a way through. In the game, players will not actually hear Merryn speak her dialogue.

Free Diving

After the first 1/4 of the game Merryn finds the Diving Suit, allowing her to free dive outside the submarine. Free diving allows her to explore small caves, interact using her coral knife, and interact with sea creatures using calls of the deep.

MOVEMENT

Outside the submarine Merryn is still controlled using the left analogue stick. She can move and rotate at any angle, allowing her to navigate narrow passages. The player can actively tap the swim button to have her move faster through the environment, giving her a more physical swimming motion than the submarine.

Merryn's Submarine

Cobbled together but highly functional. It is far from state-of-the art. Yet it can be equipped with powerful light beams, boosters, sonar, magnetic tracking, grapplers and more. The sub cannot move quickly on its own, but instead must rely on ocean currents, jet streams to do so, or special upgrades. It is highly maneuverable though. It cannot operate without Merryn's guidance. In terms of firepower, it is not equipped with missiles or guns at the beginning of Merryn's adventure. It primarily uses its gadgets to defeat enemies or solve puzzles.

Much of Song of the Deep is spent piloting Merryn's submarine through open waters and dangerous caverns. Along the way you'll acquire new attachments to unlock new abilities and be able to upgrade the submarine and its attachments to take on greater and greater challenges.

Locations

Glow Kelp Forest

Large kelp forests grow in the rocky intertidal regions of the Singing Sea. From the surface they appear perfectly natural but below the waves the bulbs of this bull kelp glow with unnaturally inviting hues. The bulbs of the glow kelp often lay dark and dormant until movement nearby agitates into glowing, often triggering a whole forest to light up at once. Many island folktales of ghost ships and merfolk living in lost wrecks may have come from this phenomenon.

Merrow Ruins

These great stone structures caved into the sea centuries ago and have since been covered and forgotten. They were built by the Merrow to worship the ancient Formori ruins, which they thought were remnants of the gods. This network of temples was built around sacred Formori artifacts and culminates in a ring of huge stone slabs.

Forbidden City

The final resting place of the golden Formori city lies deep in a cavern beneath the surface. Most of the golden city is cracked or toppled, but one spire still stands whole. Many strange devices whir and run, offering haunting lights reflecting off of golden architecture. Inside the remaining spires, golden halls offer more strange contraptions and wondrous halls now flooded and silent.

Seagarden

A leftover experiment of the Formori to examine the strange ecosystems that bloom around the undersea vents. Over the centuries bamboo and other terrestrial plants have changed and flourished despite being underwater. What strange properties do these vents hold? and what other creatures have been evolved in the vents smoke?

Garden Halls

A large part of the Forbidden city of the Formori was buried when the Gadir Island volcano exploded. Some of the great golden halls, cracked open and laid bare to the elements, have become flourishing ecosystems. In these spaces kelp and coral thrive off of the golden glinting walls of royal halls. Formori tapestries and stelles are covered by seagrass and barnacles, hiding ancient histories.

Bone Vaults

At the height of the Formori empire they had a massive hunting fleet and would pull in great leviathans from far and deep. After they processed a large kill they tossed the carcasses into the abyss to be forgotten. The bone vaults are a maze of large and small remains, white and sterile, picked clean by strange sunless creatures. What else could the Formori have thrown into these vaults to be forgotten in the darkness?

And many more...

Fun when it doesn't break your flow
Stryker55

I am a large fan of Metroid-Zania style games. There's something fun about the simple exploration of 2D when it is combined with fun action. Song of the Deep (SotD) tends to hit all of the right notes. You start in a sub that gradually gains new abilities that can be upgraded, and the new parts open new areas. The ability to leave the sub at one point adds a fun element. Early in the game, however, there is one issue that happens repeatedly, and it almost made me stop playing. The story is told like a storybook, and always in the past tense. Too many times, I would be playing, exploring and shooting monster fish, only to have everything stop and the narrator cutting in with "Meryn did this" or "Meryn saw that." The moments force you to stop and suddenly feel that you are playing the game, not in the game. I'm glad I stuck with it, though, because after about the midpoint, the cutting points either become increasingly rare or obvious of when they'll arrive so that you can focus on gameplay. And how fun the gameplay is. There's a balanced blend of combat and puzzle, both of which naturally flow you into feeling smarter and more powerful. In combat, for example, you start just shooting enemies, which is fine. Towards the end, when you're getting swarmed, it becomes a game of shoot, dodge, torpedo, shoot, dodge, all in a fairly seamless system. The game is a pretty good length for the value, but it doesn't seem to warrant more than one playthrough. The puzzles are fun, but the bosses (while also fun) are easy and don't create too much of a challenge. It's a good place if you're looking to get into this type of game and want to experience it, but games like "Ori and the Blind Forest" or "Dust: An Elysian Tail" ultimately do it better.

While playing this game the story at the beginning was good and music was amazing but after 3 hours of playing i got really bored of it. The design reminded me of almost Worms style of art.
