      For all of the fans of the Aquanox series it looks like a 3rd game is in kickstarter and it actually looks good in concept and they are currently 1/3 funded with about 3wks left.
       
      With all of the underwater games i am seeing on steam and how they look it they (Digital Arrow and Nordic Games) can pull it off they will have a great underwater shooter on their hands.

      Now this looks interesting as I am a big fan of submarine games.

      I heard the first one is pretty good also it seems to turn up a lot in space sim lists for some odd reason.

      Basically the subs handled a lot like the ships in many space sims. I was a big fan of Subwar 2050 on the Amiga (remember that old game Pinback?) so I was tempted to back this.

      Backed for beta.

      I loved Schleichfahrt and Aquanox!

      I do, still got it some where although it was never a game I got into, seem to recall it having layer that the sub descended through.

       

      Shame theirs no PayPal option.

      Yes those were thermal layers in the water that could be used to hide in. Subwar was a game that had a lot of tactics about it. I hope this Aquanox remake takes advantage of such gameplay mechanics too.

      I remember a friend had the first one on PC – I thought it looked interesting, but never got it myself.

      Thinking back though it looked like it played a lot like Freelancer (which I got into a while after that friend moved away)

      It will sure be nice to see what they can create with the UE4, I have seen a few underwater games on steam and none of those use UE4 and they look great so UE4 if they take their time to do it right should look amazing.

      Looks like you can still get in on purchasing through this link: http://startyourbusinessconsulting.com/aquanox-kickstarter-paypal/

      Had second thoughts about it, got too many games I’m not playing at the moment.

      I played the first aquanox in 2001, it was a very good game. A kind of Descent underwater. They use Unreal 3 engine for this new chapter, why not Unreal 4?

      They have Steam page now but still no release date for the game apart from saying this year https://store.steampowered.com/app/254370/Aquanox_Deep_Descent/ Looking at the forum, opinions seems to be divide over weather it just a underwater shooter and other who were expecting more of an rpg game.

      Website here https://www.aquanox.com/

      A youtuber playing the tutorial, it in German so no idea what he saying but it gives you look at the game and it’s is only from about a week ago.

        Interesting, they have went for an Elite Dangerous cockpit layout. I think that’s a good move, everything laid out just where you need it.
