Developed by Khayalan Arts and featuring haunting locations, menacing creature design and devious puzzles, SAMUDRA dares players to take on the role of a child who must go on a perilous journey across the ocean floor …

In the not-so-distant future, the world has been completely swallowed up by a toxic flood caused by climate change. Most animals are extinct, resources are scarce, and there are only a few safe havens left on the surface. One day, a child – one of the “Surface-Dwellers” who requires a breathing apparatus to endure Earth’s toxic atmosphere –  helplessly sinks to the bottom of the sea. Away from civilization, the little Surface-Dweller must face horrific pollution and bewildering underwater creatures on the way to the surface.

Key Features

  • Immerse yourself in an environmentally-conscious narrative about pollution and climate change.
  • Explore a heavily polluted underwater world.
  • Dive into the game without the need for any spoken or written dialogue.
  • Test your wits through challenging puzzles and thrilling sub-aquatic sequences!
  • Contribute to a good cause: helping to reach a goal of 70% reduction in plastic usage in Indonesia by 2025.
