If you’re looking for a game about secret experiments and undersea suspense, then Surviving the Abyss should be a good choice. You’ll have to wait for a while though since its arrival on Steam Early Access is on January 17, 2023. The game challenges players to build and maintain a science lab located at the bottom of the sea.

The game is the debut title by Rocket Flair Studios, published under the Paradox Arc label through a partnership with Paradox Interactive.

Surviving the Abyss is set at the height of the cold war and has players take charge of a deep sea research facility and carry secret experiments. They’ll need to explore and mine the seafloor to get access to resources to make sure that the lights are kept on and scientists are fed. It’s also a way to unlock new options and expand the facility. However, there are dangers lurking in the dark.

Features of the game include:

  • Be the Overseer
    • Lead a team of scientists conducting genetic experiments on local wildlife on the ocean floor.
    • Keep your population sane, obedient, and alive as you expand your base and discover the secrets of cloning and genetic research.
    • Improve life and progress in your facility by researching advanced technologies.
    • The fate of your crew is in your hands! Make crucial decisions through the event system.
  • Expand the Base
    • Ensure the survival of your crew by planning, placing, and building essential infrastructure for manufacturing, research, and life support.
    • Expand and optimize your base and its available resources. Connect your buildings and mining facilities efficiently with tunnels and powerlines.
    • Conquer the uneven terrain of the ocean floor with clever planning and vertical construction.
  • Explore the Darkness
    • Build light pylons and push back the darkness to expand your base.
    • Secure resources far away from your main base by using exploration submarines and outposts.
    • Prevent disaster by making sure power does not fail, together with life support and light sources.
  • Face the Fear
    • Your crew senses it, and so do you. Something is lurking at the edge of darkness, slithering and seething.
