Depth is a PvP multiplayer game which blends heart pounding tension and visceral action in a dark aquatic world. Playing as either a diver, or a shark, eliminate your enemies using a combination of stealth, cunning, and teamwork.


Play as a shark

As a fifteen foot Great White Shark, stalk your prey from across the ocean and tear them in half with your razor sharp teeth.

Play as a diver
As a human diver you must explore the abyss in search of treasure to upgrade your arsenal. Sharks may be fast, but spear-guns are faster!

360 degrees of fear
In the open water death often comes from above or below you . This creates opportunities for sharks to strike divers from blind spots, and it means that as a diver, you will constantly be checking your six!

Evolve your play style
Unlock exotic new weapons for your diver, or 'evolutions' for your shark that open up new tactical possibilities as you play the game. Persistent stat tracking and meaningful steam achievements will also give you something to shoot for (in some cases, quite literally!)

Heart Pounding Atmosphere
Experience the dread that comes from swimming in the darkness of the ocean. Dynamic lighting and shadows create a unique and gut-wrenching atmosphere that will have you on edge from the moment you dive in.

Hey guys. Alex here, Creative Director for Depth. I wanted to fill you all in on a bit of news regarding the project : As of about a month ago, Depth was put on indefinite hiatus. The reason for this decision was a combination of things I won't get into too much detail about, but it boiled down to

(1.) Maintaining the project and its staff was becoming extremely costly
(2.) Aspects of the project weren't "clicking" and needed design love that we couldn't provide it after nearly 3 years of devotion and attachment.

Since all of this probably sounds quite dissapointing, I'd like to stop and mention that depth_isn't_dead. Nobody is throwing out any of the work that has been done, and the concept (as i'm sure you'll all agree) is one that kicks major ass and needs to get made. If depth can find the right kind of support and direction, I have no doubt that it will rise once more from the murky abyss and bite us all in half with its awesomeness.

P.S Thanks so much guys for all your encouragement and positive vibes :)

I was tracking this game for about 3 years, and I have always wanted to play it. But they haven't done anything for a LONG time. They better work on this. It has potential.

I'm a game developer and I think I could be of some use to you, depending on what you need. Do PM me if you're interested. Your game has potential it'd be a shame to see it die.

Actually, it isn't! Keep your eyes peeled over the next couple of months.

The game won't be going through Kickstarter or Greenlight, but may appear in Early Access on Steam.
