During the Wholesome Direct showcase, developer Nautilus Games and publisher Ysbryd Games announced their new 2D adventure Everdeep Aurora. This title occurs after civilization moves underground following an apocalyptic event. Players control a cat named Shell, who’s been separated from her mother. Shell must “drill through procedurally-generated tile-based rocks and create platforming opportunities” to reunite with her family.
Several locales will be explorable, including ruins, lakes, and labs. Further, over 20 characters with their own theme songs will be featured, all providing insight into the world and upgrading your gameplay capabilities. Collectibles and sidequests are also included.
Mikel Ojea, the co-founder of Nautilus Games, stated the following regarding this announcement:
“Everdeep Aurora mixes elements from games and movies of our childhood while exploring issues of isolation and bearing the burdens of past decisions. We were inspired by many classic titles with dark touches like Castlevania, Undertale, The Goonies, and Lost, and created an entirely non-violent game. There is no combat or any enemies to fight in Everdeep Aurora – instead, we focused on exploration, both of the physical Everdeep, and of the emotions we wanted to evoke from players, aiming for a memorable and stirring gameplay experience.”
