Diluvion

An arcade submarine simulator with crew management elements. The game was developed by an independent team known as Arachnid Games. The story of Diluvion takes place in distant future, where an apocalyptic flood has forced humanity to colonize the ocean depths. The gameplay is focused around exploration of a marine world of a considerable size, completing various tasks, and combat with encountered opponents. Our travels often require the use of a sonar, which helps in navigating dark areas, as well as ranged weapons in form of torpedoes or even cannons. We’ve also received access to a crew management module – throughout our journeys, the individual crew members gather experience, acquiring new skills over time. For example, an experienced coxswain offers better maneuverability, while a talented canoneer is much more accurate.

Diluvion for PC / Windows is an arcade submarine simulator with squad management elements. The game was developed by Arachid Games, a small team known from their previous title, Ballpoint Universe.

Plot

The action of the game takes place in a science-fiction universe, in a world where an enormous flood has forced humanity to colonize the marine depths. The game begins hundreds of years after the aforementioned event – the way to the surface is now completely cut off by a thick layer of ice. The ocean is now our home, and it seems that it will stay that way. The player assumes the role of a newly minted captain, who has received his first ship along with a rookie crew.

Mechanics

When it comes to mechanics, Diluvion is a mix between a streamlined simulator and a management strategy. The campaign is non-linear and freedom-oriented – we have the freedom to choose our destination or a task that we want to embark upon. The main plotline, consisting of numerous missions is also present, but we can just as well as skip it and engage in other adventures.

We are left with a vast underwater world, highly interactive and open for exploration. Many of its regions are without any sunlight – in such cases, our ship has a sonar that can be used to navigate a dangerous area. However, the captain should proceed with caution, as the sonar reveals our location to monsters and other ships. Combat is rather arcade in nature - our unit has numerous weapons with different types of ammo or torpedoes.

If the situation is stable, we can switch to the management module. Once activated, we receive a cross-section of the ship, with all our crew manning their allocated stations in real time. Each member of the crew develops and improves his abilities, enabling us to get more out of the unit. For example, an experienced coxswain can do better in terms of maneuverability, while a talented canoneer has better accuracy. Moreover, the captain of the vessel can entrust the crew with some of the tasks, freeing the player’s workload.
