I’m really glad I happened upon this little gem. The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human is kind of a mashup of Metroid-vania and The Life Aquatic.

The setup is a bit like Planet of the Apes. Your ship goes off and enters an anomaly and returns countless years later. You come home to a flooded and lonely world.

Oh, and did I mention you get a harpoon gun and there are gigantic sea monsters? There’s also leaking sewage and mutated clams... but anyways, what a cool little game. It’s currently running a Kickstarter campaign and they just released the demo yesterday.

I’m having a lot of fun with it and yes, I’m imagining that I’m Steve Zissou in that little wayward sub. I’m not sure what we are looking for but I’d imagine porn would be high up on the list. It’s probably very lonely in that sub.
