Song of the Deep is a Metroidvania-style underwater adventure where you follow Merryn, a young girl who is trying to find her father, a fisherman lost to the depths of the ocean.

Brian Hastings, chief creative officer at Insomniac, describes the development as a “passion project”. With Song of the Deep, Insomniac hopes to transport players to a world they’ve never been to, giving them “a sense of amazement and awe”, Hastings says.

The game is a 2D side-scrolling adventure filled with puzzles and exploration. The game consists of a non-linear interactive world, so one can expect a lot of replayability.
