"An alien ocean, rich with impossible life.
A lone xenobiologist, adrift in a world of secrets.
An AI, waking from a dreamless sleep, ready to guide humanity to a terrible truth.
In Other Waters is a unique exploration game, where you must aid xenobiologist Ellery Vas in diving and studying the depths of a distant alien ocean.
Explore an Alien Ocean: Casting you as an Operator AI In Other Waters is structured around an ever-growing, tactile interface. Through this unique mode of interaction you will chart underwater courses, scan environments for vital clues, and navigate this unearthly ocean.
Study New Life: Rather than play as a sci-fi soldier or planetary colonist, In Other Waters gives you the chance to engage with its world through xenobiology. You will assist Ellery in tracking, sampling and studying the planet’s life to understand how to navigate its ocean.
Uncover Terrible Secrets: As you dive deeper into the ocean of Gliese 677Cc, the bond between you and Ellery will be tested by what you discover. The choices you make, and the way you react to Ellery will change the course of the expedition."
