Dive Into the Briny Depths of Underwater City Builder Aquatico

OverSeer Games has opened the floodgates to its underwater survival city builder Aquatico for its 1.0 launch on Steam and the Epic Games Store. After Earth’s surface became a barren and inhospitable wasteland, humanity poured their hopes into beginning a new life under the waves. Building a sustainable future, however, doesn’t come easily. Set across multiple levels of the ocean floor, players will need to survive the briny depths to build their very own utopia.

Oceanic life brings an enticing spin to players already familiar with the survival city-building genre. The advantages and disadvantages of constructing a city underwater will play a significant role when taking on tasks and expeditions. Featuring regional-based biomes with various temperatures and depth levels that impact how players build their underwater civilization, Aquaticopresents unique challenges. Whether it’s being wary of the natural sea life or adapting to unknown ecosystems to avoid triggering unwanted conflicts, managing your population and expansion is key to survival.

With vertical layered construction, Aquatico brings a unique take on city-building. Resting on the sea bed lie the core infrastructure and production facilities which are accessible to the mechanized robots working efficiently to maintain the city’s operations. Impressive domes enclose the layers above, creating a panoramic and habitable life for society. Maintaining this newfound oceanic habitat will come with difficulties, as players must work towards fulfilling the requirements for enduring sea life.

Players that traipsed the sea floor during Aquatico’s Next Fest debut will discover new features have been added. Expeditions allow players to send their inhabitants out into the oceanic depths to scout and secure resources to aid in creating Dome connections bridging the gaps between lower and upper levels.

After its hugely successful October Next Fest debut as one of the most played and downloaded demos of the event, Aquatico has headed straight to 1.0 and is available now on Steam or the Epic Games Store. Players looking to talk with other oceanic builders can join the official Discord.
