Steam swimming samudra underwater adventure game
The hand-illustrated 2D puzzle game SAMUDRA arrives on Steam on Wednesday, September 29.
In SAMUDRA, the player takes the role of a child who must embark on a perilous journey to uncover the truth about why and how the inhabitants of the surface allowed pollution to plague the Earth.
In the not-so-distant future, the world was completely engulfed by a toxic flood caused by climate change. Most animals are extinct, resources are scarce, and only a few safe havens remain on the surface – now occupied by the remaining surface dwellers, who need breathing apparatus to endure Earth’s toxic atmosphere. . But now the surface dwellers are turning to the sea for their resources.
One of the remaining surface dwellers – a child named Trip – sinks helplessly to the bottom of the sea. Far from civilization, he must embark on an underwater journey across the ocean floor – in the face of a horrible pollution and bewildering underwater creatures on the way to the surface.
The story of SAMUDRA is told without dialogue. The visuals, ambiance, creatures and sounds of the deep carry a warning that we all must heed if we intend to stay on this planet: Pollution of the world’s oceans will not only radically change life such as we know it, but maybe it will end it completely.
Profits from the game’s sales will partially fund a year-round collaboration with the Indonesian Environmental Activist Circle to reduce plastic use in Indonesia by 70% by 2025.
