Exploring the haunting abyss of Subnautica (video feature)

Embrace the beauty of the depths

Recommended Videos

A Jamaican crab once said “Everything’s better down where it’s wetter: Under the sea.” So with that spirit burning in our chest, this week Digital Tourist is taking a deep dive into the wonderful waters of Subnautica.

Subnautica offers up an alien landscape lovingly rendered with dozens of biomes providing distinct experiences. We’ll start this tour in the lovely and safe confines of the Shallows, but don’t get too comfortable there. Our tour is going to take us deep down under the surface to caves long forgotten to most of this world’s resident fish. Along the way we’ll get to meet the local fauna, from the benign Bladderfish all the way up to the many Leviathans haunting these seas.

If you’re new to Digital Tourist, each episode we’ll be showcasing the beautiful worlds that game developers have crafted in painstaking polygonal detail. No questing; no combat (usually); no UI. Just a (mostly) peaceful walk, stroll, glide, trot, or trek across some of the greatest places to never exist.

This week has no mods at all. There are none really needed with a game as beautiful as Subnautica. So rest assured that if you want to brave these waters on your own like a digital Jacques Cousteau, all you need is a copy of the game.

As always, let us know what you think and what games you’d like to see featured on upcoming installments. If you want more of this relaxing content make sure to check out the full playlist on Youtube.
