SubRay is a beautiful and intense underwater exploration game, where you pilot a vulnerable little ship through the depths of an alien sea, with all manner of nasty creatures keen on making you their lunch.
Your ship doesn’t have much to defend itself in these hostile waters, just a dim set of lights and a gun which takes an unnerving amount of time to recharge. The gun is best used as a last resort, as the intentionally long charging time makes it useless for just blasting your way though enemies. It’s far better to turn off your lights and try and sneak past any underwater predators, as long as you don’t get too close to them, you should be fine.
The audio and visual design in Subray are both excellent, and do a great job of immersing you in this beautiful yet deadly world, building an uneasy tension that wouldn’t be out of place in a survival horror game, reaching an intense climax in the games finale. With a full playthrough taking less than 20mins, we’d thoroughly recommend checking this one out – yet another weird and wonderful creation from the students of the DigiPen Institute.
