Aquanox: Deep Descent‘s lineage includes 1996’s MS-DOS game Archimedean Dynasty, German: Schleichfahrt, 2001’s AquaNox and 2003’s AquaNox 2: Revelation. It’s a game set in the underwater world in which humanity now lives, having relocated hundreds of years earlier due to a catastrophe on Earth’s surface.

According to Norbert Varga, project lead at developer Digital Arrow: Reaching the main funding goal of the Kickstarter campaign will allow us to create a new Aquanox game of the size and complexity it deserves, for gamers around the globe. At the same time, it also allows us to make its future players an integral part in development decisions surrounding the game at its earliest stages.

Publisher Nordic Games Producer Martin Kreuch: We’ve had long discussions with Digital Arrow about the scope of the game and the transition to Unreal Engine 4. Based on our positive previous experience with Kickstarter (The Book of Unwritten Tales 2 together with the developer KING ART), we firmly believe it is the right platform to help us achieve our joint vision for the future of Aquanox.

The Kickstarter Campaign for Aquanox: Deep Descent will run until September 11, 2015. Currently, 17% of its $75,000 base goal has been raised.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
