Another interesting game announced during the Xbox Games Showcase 2023 is Still Wakes the Deep from the British studio The Chinese Room, authors of Dear Esther, Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, and Little Orpheus.
The events of the game, which, like Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, is a narrative horror, take place in 1975 on an offshore oil production platform in the North Sea. During a storm, an accident occurs on the platform, there is no communication, and it seems that the oil workers have awakened something not very pleasant in the depths of the ocean. The player’s task is to survive and find an opportunity to leave the platform.
Still Wakes the Deep will be released sometime in 2024 for Xbox Series X|S, Windows PC, and PlayStation 5. The game will be part of Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass and will appear on Steam.
