A choice-based story about an underwater dive gone bad, March 18, 2023

This game reminds me of bits of a lot stories--Armageddon, Sphere, Alien. But it's it's own thing.

This is a choice based game where you are a oil rig diver on one last job. You're told that something bad happened down there and you have to fix it. But things get...weird.

The game had a pretty small default font and for me only used about 25% of my screen. Most of the choices were between 2 or 3 options, and I felt like I had real interactivity. There were some weird repetitions in the text some times, like when asking questions at the beginning.

The story didn't really resonate with me the way the choices did. Instead of building up tension it revealed things early, then acted as if you didn't know them, and big plot events didn't have buildup while big buildups had no payoff.

Still, I'm glad I played and had a good time.
