I hope you’re not drenched from all the water I talked about last week. Brace yourself! You’ll feel water-logged today because you and I will dive back into the ocean.
I’m going tell you what I think a good underwater game should have. Then you will see why thatgamecompany is the best option to make the game.
Last week, I flooded you with talk about Endless Ocean and why I liked it. Go play Endless Ocean on Wii before you judge my taste in games. You’ll find it is like a refreshing fizzy drink in your otherwise stale gaming diet.
Now, I’d like to see a AAA ocean exploration game on the other consoles and PC. I’d want this game two have two feature.
1. An endless free-roaming mode like Endless Ocean
That means you can swim around the ocean in any direction and at any time. You could turn off damage mode too. That means no fear of shark bites or third degree sunburns.
You could call it grand theft auto under water, but, you know, without the prostitutes and drug dealers. Though I suppose you could get into some bloody shark battles.
2. A co-op story mode
It might be cool to swim through the ocean with a friend. You could explore the wonders of the ocean in the free roam mode. Or you could dive into a cool story together.
Sign me up for a thatgamecompany ocean game that has these features. They know how to dazzle us with a desolate desert. Why not try the same thing with an ocean? I’d like to see how they handle all the fish interactions; this could cause the game to sink or swim.
They could also copy the multiplayer from Journey. I can picture it now. You swim around an ocean and strangers jump into your game with splash, like a cannonball at the pool. Sounds like fun to me.
But could thatgamecompany make a great underwater game?
I think so.
• their games have a great art style
• their games are original
• Journey has exceptional multiplayer and music
How could you resist a non-existent game this good?
