Hidden Deep is a dark pixel thriller with an alien flair by Daedalic

  • This year the 2D thriller game Hidden Deep is coming to the PC
  • In it you face underground traps and monsters as a research group
  • There will be a Steam demo between February 3rd and 9th, 2021

Daedalic Entertainment and Cogwheel Software have announced a new indie game: The creepy sci-fi thriller Hidden Deep is a 2D action game that should be released in 2021.

According to the development studio, Hidden Deep is based on horror games and films from the 80s and 90s and optically goes this way with 2D pixel art graphics. Here you go with a research team far below the sea floor to find out what is lurking there: And the cruel traps and nasty aliens are not for the faint of heart – even without realistic graphics.

This game looks a bit like the indie horror hit Carrion from 2020 – only this time you take the usual perspective and be eaten by the monster instead of being the monster yourself. Carrion in classic, so to speak, because also in Hidden Deep there is a similarly depressing atmosphere underground, side-scrolling pixel art and a lot of brutal tentacle brutality. Daedalic prefers to refer to the game itself as “The Thing Meets Barotrauma”.

There is currently a lot to report about Daedalic Entertainment. Her popular adventures Das Schwarze Auge: Satinavs Ketten (test) and Das Schwarze Auge: Memoria (test) – originally only available for the PC – now also for Xbox, PlayStation and the Switch were released yesterday.

The largest project of the German development studio at the moment is probably Gollum, an action adventure around the devious Lord of the Rings figure. The community will have to wait a little longer for this title than expected: Gollum has been postponed this week to 2022.

There is no release date yet, except that the game will be released for PC later this year. But you can play a demo for Hidden Deep on Steam between February 3rd and 9th.
