The First Draft

The Peaceful Grotto

Our very first biome, about 8 months ago, was 'The Peaceful Grotto,' and it's since been renamed to 'The Gulley' based on the currently-in-the-works prelude novella to Overhuman. Originally I really wanted to set ourselves apart from our inspiration, Subnautica, by focusing on a more active and terrestrial playstyle.

Verticality and satisfying terrestrial movement were core concepts from the very start, and we've only reinforced this since this art was made. The hobbit holes are abandoned shelters from the ancient human colonists of yore... what bones and treasures lie within?
