Song of the Deep is a metroidvania-style action-adventure game following a girl’s quest into the unknown to find her missing father. Combining discovery, skill, and suspense with an unforgettable narrative, this underwater journey will challenge players to explore, experiment, and skillfully navigate a vast ocean landscape.

Song of the Deep delivers unique gameplay in a tale of love, heartbreak, and triumph. Explore a fantastic non-linear interactive underwater world filled with more than 200 treasures to collect. Equip your submarine with 30 upgrades and 15-plus abilities to access new areas of the sea, and combine those abilities in surprising ways -- like catching a torpedo with your claw arm mechanism. Outwit, outmaneuver and battle creatures along the way, from lantern jellies to giant bosses like The Watcher.

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.

Song of the Deep reviews and comments

The 12-year-old Merryn goes on a home-made submarine in Search of her lost Father, who will one Day not return from his Sea Voyage. Sounds a bit weird at first, but it's a very loving Story line, in my Opinion. First, you only steer the submarine through the Depths of the Sea and discover all kinds of Monsters, Treasures and other Things. In the Course of the Game you expand your submarine with various Upgrades and Weapons, later you can also disembark from the submarine and steer Merryn himself. So you can swim through small Gaps where no submarine fits through and discover more Things. The Graphics fit very well and it's all wonderfully colorful and contrasting. I also like the Music very much personally, which is generally a Plus point For me with a Video Game. The Puzzles are also very pleasant and sometimes something has to think about, which I appreciate. Positive:-Graphic Music Control (Use a PS4 Controller that works wonderfully) story history (Until now) puzzle-world map-Narrator voice I also like really good Negative:-Sometimes you have to swim Long Detours, I find at least-very rare Boss fights All in all a Game that you should definitely Play for the Price of just under €15, if such 2D Games promise you. In my Opinion, there is nothing wrong with That! PS: If you want to get an Impression of the Game and/or watch a Let's Play, you can watch me By Song Of The Deep Episode 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVHLY9qeAok&index=1&list=PLUW4l6kEphMbffy_ImUR5KgAsZ-nDATP8

The Screenshots after and the first Few minutes in the Game I thought more of a Game for Kids. But for this one, it's certainly going to be too difficult as the Game progressed. Even though the Story is based on typical Fairy Tales, I'm absolutely thrilled with this Game. Metroidvania-like is thus used through different Sections, some of which are worked out in completely different ways. The biggest Plus of this Game, therefore, is the Graphics. The visible Currents, the different Fish and Living beings, huge (or even very small) Creatures in the Background or even just the Background as such are extremely individual and incredibly well hit. As The game progresses, the Protagonist equips her UBoot with better and better Gimmicks, making the Fights relatively easy in the last Third of the Game. Progress is stored at individually set storage Points; These are fairly distributed and so you can only play briefly in between. The easy Disadvantages of the Game would be the few different Opponents and the long Distances that you have to travel in part. There are also Teleporters, but they are rare. Also, some Puzzles are extremely annoying because the Controls (for that) are not precise enough. As a slow Player, I took about 14 Hours for a Run (but I'm also very excited to Collect). Nevertheless, I have seen that I have not yet discovered all The corners of the Underwater World (all Treasures cannot be collected in time, for which you need even longer). After the End of The game, you can reload the last Memory Point and explore the rest of The world. I Played with Keyboard/Mouse, but also with Gamepad this is possible. The Commands cannot be changed either in T/M or Gamepad. In The Gamepad, however, the Occupancy should be intuitive (I read). Along with the relatively simple Achievements and Collectible cards, I can recommend the Game in good Conscience.
