Nauticrawl: 20,000 Atmospheres is now available for download on iOS devices. It was originally released on Steam two years ago in September of 2019 where it received very positive reviews. Fans loved the immersive feel of the game and the unique, love-hate relationship that is developed between the player and the machine. It is essentially a puzzle game where steampunk merges with sci-fi.
The player is challenged to operate the unfamiliar control panel of the Nauticrawl, a stolen vessel that you are using in order to escape a trepid alien environment polluted with radiation. There is no tutorial to help you along. The game puts players into confusion where the tiniest breadcrumbs must be interpreted in order to figure out how to operate the stolen mech.
This game relies heavily on trial and error by pulling levers and pressing buttons. Failure to operate your machine correctly will cost you. In this game, you must learn to adapt or die. Each time a player fails to escape they will be thrown back to the beginning. Luckily, the knowledge gained from previous experiments will make each new trip a bit easier.
There is a strong tactile feel to the controls that make realistic sounds when they are clicked, as well as a nautical-inspired art style that communicates itself through the sounds of radar technology and an aesthetic very similar to that of a submarine. Nautical: 20,000 Atmospheres is developed by Steam Punk Oasis, and the main game developer is Andrea Interguglielmi. In an interview conducted by GOFIG News, Interguglielmi stated that the main inspiration for Nauticrawl: 20,000 Atmospheres stems from Disney’s rendition of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The mobile version can be accessed on the App Store for $4.99, which is a really good deal since the PC version on Steam costs $14.99.
