The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human is a pixelated, side-scrolling, underwater action-adventure game about exploring the decaying ruins of our species — and fighting deadly sea-creatures — in search of answers about our downfall.
Melancholic underwater atmosphere: We really wanted to show the beauty of the sea as well as our influence on nature.
Exploratory storytelling: The story is mainly told through the art and backgrounds with some textual hints along the way.
Unique conflict encounters: Throughout the adventure, you will encounter — much like Odysseus in The Odyssey — monstrous beasts and challenges that you will have to best.
Polarized gameplay: It’s pretty chill until you’ve gotta fight for your life!
We think it’s important to bring up global issues that have affected our lives and try to give a different point of view: climate change, terrorism, and technological progress.
We’re not lying: You are the last human; humanity is doomed.
The water rose by an unpredictable amount due to climate change. The Earth’s surface froze over, and humans were forced to live underwater — where they could still harvest energy and grow food — changing how cities and districts looked. As resources began to dwindle in the year 2971, sub-aquatic spaceships were sent to a nearby wormhole to look for habitable planets. Things did not go as planned. And now the ship, Argo9, has returned thousands of years later in a time after humans have gone extinct.
It’s up to you to determine whether the ruins of our species is a travesty or an inevitable conclusion as you explore the lush aquatic world and encounter deadly underwater monsters.
