Nauticrawl will have you puzzling out an alien ship’s controls to try escape

You are on a planet where everyone wants to kill you, but there is a small sliver of hope. You climb into a Nauticrawl, a giant metal ship that could get you to safety. Except the ship is alien and there is no instruction manual. How do you even make it move?

Nauticrawl combines survival, puzzle and roguelike elements as you try to navigate your way through many dangers: sentinels are searching for you, you are very deep underwater, the pressure threatening to crush your ship and the ship itself is designed for the ruling elite, not you. Unless you work out how the controls work, and how to hack things so that the ship doesn’t kill you outright, you might still battle to reach the end in this turn-based adventure that plays out a lot like text adventures of old.

Andrea Interguglielmi’s Nauticrawl: 20,000 Atmospheres will release on Steam on 16 September.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
