The indie scene grew a lot in the past years thanks to this generation of gaming consoles and fundraising means such as Kkickstarter, which helped creative minds fund their projects. With such a large spectrum of creative people managing to get their creations out there, it wasn't long till we saw a concept that is out of this world. What Robin Arnott did, was create a game that focuses on sensory depravation, and can basically only be played by hearing. Imagine playing the game with a blacked gas mask on, relying only on sound. Deep Sea will drop you in the ocean, where you're chased by a creature, and equipped only with a gun. All you can here are eerie noises, the creature, and your own breathing. To play the game you'll need a blacked out gas mask, a joystick, headphones, microphones, and a MAC. Arnott was kind enough to release the files and instructions required to get Deep Sea up and running. This game was released in a bid for Arnott to get funding for another upcoming sound driven title Soundself which you can try out and pledge for on Kickstarter by clicking here.
