Hello, you glorious gluttons for all things indie horror! Are you just starving for the newest of the new, the most unknownest of the unknown? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the Ultra-Indie Daily Dose! In this series, we’re going to pick a new game every day from an indie horror creator you’ve probably never heard of. No million-dollar budgets or factory productions. This is the space for the little guy with not but a developer toolkit and a dream. So if you’re down to roll the dice on something different, then stick around and check it out!
Welcome back for today’s Daily Dose of indie horror! This game begs to question, is everything better down where it’s wetter? According to It’s Still Out There developer OcO, who seems to specialize in really good pixel art, that would be a resounding “no.” Inspired by Subnautica (another excellent underwater horror game, highly recommend), It’s Still Out There is one part Metroidvania, one part Minecraft, and one hundred percent thalassophobia.
It’s Still Out There begins with the player character, who looks like an underwater Isaac Clarke, waking up alone in an underwater base. Your fellow seafaring friends have gone off on various errands after a catastrophic event stranded you all deep in the drink. With nothing but mysterious alien materials and a pair of flippers, you must construct a base and supplies for an expedition into the depths from scratch.
