From 1991-1999 a series of sounds have been detected deep within the ocean. All heard around the world, 3000 miles away from the detection center. Further away than any known creature can communicate.

Ever since, the sounds have proceeded, each year moving closer and closer to the same location. All except this year. The sounds have reached their destination and have stopped all together. It’s your job to investigate...

Depths of Sanity is a Metroidvania action adventure game based on exploring the depths of the ocean. The player is tasked with investigating noises heard from the ocean that cannot be explained by scientists. As they delve deeper they begin to question their reality and their mission as a whole.

6 Main worlds: Reef, Caves, Sunken Ship, Volcano, Deep Ocean, The Depths
Dozens of unlockables - Torpedoes, flares, sonar, depth charges, lasers, bounce shots, new hulls, and many more
Unique boss fights
Pixel Art Graphics

DoS is quite early in its development but we are hoping to get our first playable build up by August 2017. The IndieDB Community has been extraordinarily helpful with our previous titles and would love to get your feedback as we continue to develop this game.

Bomb Shelter Games is proud to announce a new demo for Depths of Sanity that is now available for download.

Depths of Sanity is an underwater metroidvania inspired by Axiom Verge and Galak Z. Explore the deep ocean and question the reality of the world you discover.

This new demo includes numerous improvements including a complete graphical overhaul (no more placeholder art!), numerous new weapons including the wave beam, laser, plasma, and charge shot, new abilities including harpoon (similar to zelda's hookshot), back dash, shields, and so much more.


We demoed the game last week at PlayNYC and it was met with an extremely warm reception.

Please download the pre-alpha demo through the link below and be sure to let us know what you think. We are eager for input so we can make this the best that it can be. The demo runs about 15-20 minutes. Also if you don't have time to play, be sure to check out the play through in the video below.
