    Deep in the oceans there are inhospital zones where life barely exist, and when it does they are totally different from what we know. Darkness is it's home and appearances can deceive you, the only thing that matters is to hunt and survive to those who hunt you.

    Dive in this thrilling virtual reality game about the mysteries of the abyssal zone, you are in control of the daily life of a snailfish, a very resilient fish who lives in the depths of the ocean. Your main objective is to survive exploring the underworld searching for food as small crustaceans and mollusks, breeding, carrying your eggs for protection and fleeing from larger terrifying predators such as Anglerfishes, Viperfishes, Jellyfishes and more mysterious animals. 

    As you dive deeper in the abyss, you'll find unexplored fields where there is more food, however the enemies are more violent and lethal. You will barely "sense" things that are surrounding you. With a limited enlighted range of view it's even more important to listen to the environment noises and predict if it's safe or not to face the unknown.

    You get rewards for reproducing and taking care of your precious eggs. At this stage, the snailfish puts the eggs in the mouth and stay without food until the eggs hatch. Without much food, your senses will be getting low and your sight becomes limited, perfect for the attack of an enemy, one single misjudment could cost your life in the game. Be cautious, be instinctive, be brave, don't be a Prey.
