Game

Abyss Crew is a multiplayer adventure cooperative game, where players take the role of the crew of a submarine. It is meant to be played at 3, 4 or 5 players, in local or online network.

Gameplay
Each player has a specific role: Pilot, Radio, Gunner, Engineer or Captain. Players have to interact with each other, which is the core of our gameplay: you can’t drive the whole submarine alone, you have to rely on your crewmates! Players must interact regularly: the gunner need to synchronize with the pilot to align the torpedo tubes with its target; the radio can alert other players on the approach of an enemy torpedo; captain has to give orders…
Our goal is to give players plenty of opportunities of discussion, of negociation, of tension, … and finally, a feeling they participated to an adventure together!

Radio seat – Detect hidden threats

The radio tries to detect enemies with his sonar. He can get additionnal information on a particular enemy with its scanner. The longer he scans, the more information he gets, about enemy type, health, behaviour, etc. These informations can then be transmitted to his crewmates. In the same time, the radio can check wether the submarine is being detected by the other enemies.
