DEEPER is a cooperative pyschological horror game in which a team of ocean researchers dive underwater on a routine mission that doesn’t go as expected. Take on the roles of these two characters while exploring a creepy environment and solving the mystery of a missing crew. Deeper is an atmospheric, accessible game with a story that unfolds slowly as the players make choices about how their characters interact and how much they reveal to each other.
What happens when the person you must rely on to survive, is the one person you can't trust?
DEEPER began as the Thesis project of NYU MFA students Chris Chung and Desiree Cifre. They started working on the game in October of 2016. They began with the idea of building a game that game enthusiasts could play with their non-gamer friends, family, and significant others. They also wanted to make a local multiplayer game that tapped into the nostalgia they had for the console games of the 90s.
In Winter 2016, Zubin Mulji came onboard as the team's composer and sound designer. Actress Taylor Moury joined the project as the voice of Doc, and Sahar Naderi rounds out the team as the graphics lead and social media guru.
The team has had the great fortune to have amazing mentors and advisors, including Naomi Clark, Sam Barlow, and ocean science advisor Dhruv Balwada.
In the June of 2017, Deeper was accepted into the NYU Game Center Incubator.
