Aquatico

Overseer Games and Digital Reef Games have released a new alpha gameplay trailer for their upcoming underwater city builder, Aquatico.

Aquatico is a survival city builder set in the not-too-distant future, after the Earth’s surface has been rendered an uninhabitable wasteland. Save the last remnants of humanity by building an underwater metropolis on the ocean floor. Build important infrastructure on the ocean floor, and construct floating domed cities to house refugees. Send out expeditions to gather the valuable resources that you’ll need to keep everyone alive.

You can find the new gameplay trailer below.

You can find a rundown (via Steam) below:

Aquatico is a survival city building game set on the ocean floor. In the not-too-distant future, the surface of the Earth became a barren wasteland, but groups of people refused to abandon hope. They embarked on a journey beneath the waves hoping to find a safe place and start anew. They find an amazing, surreal world full of danger and challenges and strive to find the needed resources to build a thriving underwater city.

Vertical layered construction

Your underwater city will have more then one vertical stage for building. The sea bed level will hold basic infrastructure, production and industry buildings, while the upper stages enclosed in massive domes will hold housing and other public buildings.

Underwater infrastructure

Creating a city in an underwater environment comes with its own set of challenges and to cover for these, players will build specific types of infrastructure that supply the needed resources and resolve unique requirements of living in the deep ocean.

Expedition mechanics

Being previously uninhabited, the ocean floor hides many secrets and expeditions are there to help you uncover some of them.

The player is expected to seek out and secure available basic and advanced resources, manufacture what is required for life in the ocean depths and overcome unique dangers that lurk in this incredible environment.

The core mechanics of Aquatico are similar to the widely adopted standards of the city building genre. Hunt for basic resources, build structures for your citizens, then expand your underwater production chains to secure higher tier resources. At the same time it is important to keep in mind the needs of your people and tend to them as best as you can.

As a futuristic experience, expect to employ the help of drones, submarines, mechanized underwater robots and all sorts of varied technology adapted to the new environment.

Expeditions are a part of the sandbox game that encourage everyone to explore further and obtain multiple bonuses in case of successful endeavors.

Aquatico features a narrative segment where players are introduced to the fantastic underwater world, while achieving various story related goals at the same time.
