Target Acquired: Below the Ocean

Below the Ocean, from Ismael Rodriguez, is a puzzle-platformer set in the ocean depths and centering around the search for four ancient relics. You take on the role of a nameless explorer who is drawn to the deep by tales of the strange things that lie beneath the ocean, including stories of a place that exists below the water itself. In order to explore, the diver must tether himself to oxygen tanks, which limits his range, but it also allows him to use the pull of the tether to reach higher platforms, swing around ledges, and activate switches. As his adventure continues, the diver encounters sea life, air bubbles that grant him new abilities, and even areas where he must disconnect from the safety of his tether for a few seconds to make his way forward... or meet a watery end.

The game is now available for PC via Steam and Itch. Check our coverage here.
