Play OverviewPlay Overview

Still Wakes The Deep (2024) is a horror narrative game set on the Beira D oil rig in 1975. When disaster strikes off the coast of Scotland you must traverse the collapsing rig to save your crew from what becomes clear is not only a natural disaster.

You play an off-shore oil rig worker desperately having to deal with a vicious storm in perilous dark surroundings and the freezing North Sea waters. Your communication is soon down and it's up to you to deal with what you find.

You run, climb, and swim through the flooding corridors and treacherous outer decks. As you progress you discover a terrifying, unrelenting foe without weapons or special powers. It's down to your wits and determination to get out in one piece and see your family again.

The result is a disaster story that invites you to step into its pages. From the stunningly-realised North Sea location to the cast of Scottish actors, it's an experience, unlike the usual video game power fantasies. Something has turned your home into a nightmare, where the familiar becomes threatening, and where a noise in the dark fills you with dread. Can you find it in you to confront the unknown?
