Aquamarine is a beautiful 70s-era psychedelic comic book styled Sci-Fi roguelike survival adventure where you explore an underwater ecosystem, scavenge resources and attempt to find your way back to your crashed ship.
Previously featured on Alpha Beta Gamer back in 2018, Aquamarine is a turn-based roguelite survival adventure where you use an escape pod to explore an underwater world that you’ve crash landed on. You have limited resources and your escape pod is pretty basic (initially anyway), but as you explore you’ll discover resources and components for your pod that can give you some useful upgrades. There are a few issues though – your pod needs a constant supply of crystals to keep powered up and a lot of the wildlife you meet really isn’t friendly!
You do unlock the ability to attack with your pod later on, but on the whole Aquamarine is more about exploration and discovery than combat. Your food and power supplies give you enough to deal with so you’re best off avoiding conflict with the wildlife if possible. It’s also worthwhile paying attention to their behaviour as they can prove quite useful at times – such as one creature that can help you find crystals (as long as you reach the crystal before it!)
The current build of Aquamarine is a little buggy and prone to crashing, but it has a lot of potential. The Moebius inspired 70s-era psychedelic comic book art style is fantastic, the vibrant and deadly underwater world is a fascinating place to explore and there’s lots to discover in its depths. A beautiful undersea adventure well worth diving into.
