SEE THE WORLD THROUGH AN AI LENS: Navigate an elegant, intuitive UI via touch or gamepad controls. Interpret signals, set headings, and map the ocean through experimentation and intuition. BECOME A XENOBIOLOGIST: Discover and catalogue species through observation, scanning, taking samples, and interacting with alien life. Read Ellery’s notes, look at her sketches, and help her classify an entirely new ecosystem. PLAN YOUR DIVES: Choose whether to study creatures, investigate secrets or dive new areas, then come back to your base to study samples in the lab, chat to Ellery or read her journals to understand more about this world. BUILD A LASTING RELATIONSHIP: Through limited communication learn more about the person whose suit you inhabit, and help guide her towards a terrible truth. What you experience together will bring you closer.
