Narcosis

An underwater survival game developed by Honor Code studio, putting us in the role of a professional diver clad in a heavy diving suit to reach greater depths. During a task for an underwater laboratory, an accident occurs and the hero finds himself abandoned on the ocean floor. He must survive and find a way to escape the trap before his oxygen supply runs out. We explore underwater locations, fighting aggressive animals and solving occasional puzzles. We observe the world from first person perspective, which enhances the claustrophobic feeling of the game. To succeed in Narcosis, we must wisely use our equipment and be able to efficiently move in a very heavy suit while managing supply of oxygen, which is consumed faster, e.g., through physical effort, damage-induced stress or changing water pressure.

Narcosis is an underwater survival horror released on PC / Windows. It has been developed by Honor Code studio.

Plot

Narcosis puts us in the shoes of a professional diver in heavy suit designed for descending into great depths. While he performs a task for underwater laboratory, an accident happens that results in him being abandoned on the ocean floor. He now must find way out of this place before his oxygen runs out.

Game mechanics

PC / Windows’s Narcosis is an action adventure game from survival horror genre. We explore locations, fight hostile animals and solve occasional puzzles. We observe the world form first-person perspective, which enhances the claustrophobic atmosphere of the game, along with the fact that moving in heavy suit gives a feeling of being in a moving coffin.

key component of the gameplay is managing your supply of oxygen. It drops faster in certain conditions, e.g. physical effort, damage-induced stress or entering places with greater water pressure. Having oxygen deficiency, the brain stops functioning properly, resulting in hallucinations that make navigating and surviving even more difficult.

There are a few items that we can use, like flares, flashlights and a knife. The latter is especially useful during encounters with enemies. There are no imagined creatures in the game, as the developers thought that animals dwelling in the deep are terrifying enough.

Technical aspects

Narcosis uses popular Unity3D engine and supports virtual reality technology, though the latter is not required to play the game.
