Insomniac Games has announced its next project. It's called Song of the Deep, and it's adorable!
Insomniac Games, the developer behind Spyro, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance, and Sunset Overdrive, has announced its next project: a little submarine exploration game called Song of the Deep. This brings the company's list of projects to three—a new Ratchet & Clank game and an Oculus-exclusive title called Edge of Nowhere are also due out in 2016.
Check out the first trailer for Song of the Deep:
The game mixes underwater exploration, combat, and puzzle solving. Brian Hastings, CCO at Insomniac, described Song of the Deep as being in the "metroidvania style," in a blog post. The game tells the story of a girl named Merryn, who has built a makeshift submarine and launched into the Atlantic to find her fisherman father, who has gone missing.
Song of the Deep is being published in conjunction with video game retail giant GameStop, which is taking its first step into game publishing. While the game will be available digitally on Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam for $15, physical copies will only be sold at GameStop. Insomniac made it clear, though, that GameStop had no creative input in their game.
Song of the Deep is out this summer.
