Indie Sci-fi Ocean Exploration Title Neptune Flux is out today for PSVR.
Neptune Flux is a story-driven sci-fi ocean VR adventure game with supernatural elements.
The world above the water is a dust bowl and an escape into space is out of reach. Humanity's last hope of survival is the untouched ecosystem of the deep sea, and A.Q.U.A. is the worldwide market leader in underwater colonization. In Neptune Flux, you take on the role of Sarah, an A.Q.U.A. employee tasked with finding the source of strange energy surges that are disrupting A.Q.U.A. operations. As you carry out A.Q.U.A. missions and explore the sea floor, you’ll discover the dark secrets that lurk below.
Neptune Flux takes place in a small part of the deep ocean. You pilot a mini-submarine. and explore a limited number of locations near your undersea base. As you explore each location, strange things occur, and you get to try to solve a mystery. You can pick up salvage along the way, to earn money which allows you to buy two submarine upgrades (better headlights and low-energy consumption sonar) and various consumables (flares, "energy nodes" to extend the reach of your sub, and speed boosts).
Neptune Flux can be played with or without a VR headset but the PSVR adds a nice level of immersion. The game is actually pretty relaxing and not a bad value for $8.
