City Beneath the Surface



Beneath the surface lies a legendary lost city. If your submarine broke down there one day, what would you do? Answer the call of forgotten gods, or make repairs and be on your way?

You set out to repair your broken-down submarine, but soon you will discover that there is much more going on beneath the surface. Strange, glowing orbs speak into your head, and the Greek gods are pleading for your help. Will you uncover the truth of what really happened to Atlantis?

In this first-person adventure, you guide an eccentric submarine owner through a lost city, discovering clues to the history of Atlantis, avoiding the dangerous shark, and acquiring god-like powers.


If you die you will respawn at your submarine, but will not lose progress toward your objectives.

Orange orbs are oracles that let you temporarily see the locations of all items, even through walls.

Purple orbs will grant you one burst of god-like strength to reach otherwise inaccessible rooms.

Bring keys to the gods’ prisons to be granted more air.

Complete each god’s mission to receive a permanent power-up.

You can escape the shark’s pursuit by breaking his line of sight with you, by ducking around a corner or into a building.

This game was my Ludum Dare 29 compo entry. All assets in it, aside from the logo and some allowed base code, were created within the 48 hour competition window. For more details, you can check out my development journal on the Ludum Dare site.
