Ratchet and Clank developer Insomniac Games are working away on Song of the Deep, an underwater adventure game in which you take control of a makeshift submarine.

Inside the submarine is a woman named Merryn, who is searching for her missing father, a fisherman that has been lost at sea. The story is told through picture book-like cut-scenes and is inspired by Irish Mythology.

The side scrolling game plays out in Metroidvania style, with puzzles and exploration, and new skills gaining you access to areas that you previously couldn’t reach.

There’s also dangerous sea creatures to contend with, which means that it’s a good job that the submarine is equipped with various weapons.

As typical, there will be both a digital and physical version of the game, although the latter will be exclusive to Gamestop, as it’s them that are publishing the retail version.

Song of the Deep is due for release this summer on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The debut trailer of the underwater adventure game can be viewed below.
