When was the last time you took a submerged vehicle beneath the ocean and fought for oxygen and territory against other resource-hungry factions? Been a while, right? Let’s pretend like that’s a regular occurrence, because it’s going to take a lot of conditioning to survive Subseige, a MOBA RTS currently accepting beta applications for a sub-nautical fight for survival after a terrible climatic event (I wonder what brought that on?). Essentially after the planet suffers enough of human existence to the point where it’s having a hard time sustaining life, we decide to take a dip in the big blue pond that covers about 70% of our planet. I’ll tell you one thing, fleeing whatever weather-related phenomenon won’t end so well if you dive into the aphotic zone, it’s not much warmer down there. Add in the fact that to date we’ve only explored less than 5% of the planet’s ocean, so who knows what else is hiding down there in what I like to call “the scary”.
Subseige is an intense strategy battle arena that forces players to clash over resources while struggling to keep oxygen in the life support system of their vehicles. The game supports up to 12-player battles that the developers like to refer to as 12-player mosh pits. The last time I was in a mosh pit, I almost got punched out by a 16-year-old watching A Day To Remember, so I’d rather not get decked 2,000 leagues under the sea by a 16-year-old in a gunship submarine, but it’s going to happen one day, watch. Developed by Icebird Studios and published by Headup Games (producers of The Binding of Isaac, Limbo, Terraria and more) Subseige looks like a wild undersea ride, and the available trailers are a great example of what we can expect the game to feel like. The project looks solid and there’s only one way to find out the integrity of this upcoming title, signing up for the beta using the link below.
