Underwater horror games are kind of new. We have horror games set in abandoned buildings and even in the mind but not often in the ocean. That is weird because the ocean is so unexplored and eerie and we know so little about it. Anoxemia for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One is looking to change that.
Playing as Dr. Bailey, you are on a mission to collect samples from a dangerous location in the ocean. The world is recovering, slowly, from a war that nearly ended life on the planet long ago. Unfortunately, the ocean is now covered in acid and you are trying to fix it. Then the unthinkable happens, your submarine crashes into the floor of the sea.
Now you are tasked with finding a way out of this situation. Being a scientist first, you continue collecting samples so that maybe your life’s work can continue on after you are dead. Hopefully, you won’t have to face your mortality many leagues under the surface of the ocean.
Anoxemia is a 2D side scrolling survival horror game with scientific underpinnings. There will be things you face that you could not imagine – the acid flow is just one problem.
