About this game

In a grasp for salvation with sentinels closing in, you've stolen a Nauticrawl. You check the radar, turn a few knobs, press some buttons… then you realize

I don’t know how to move this hunk of metal...

If the pursuing forces or the crushing atmosphere don't kill you first, the Nauticrawl - designed to be piloted only by the ruling elites - just might. This instrument, your only hope of survival, could also be your demise.

With the right amount of experimentation your escape plan just might succeed. Pull levers, redirect power, hack devices, uncover communications, try anything and everything

You've heard the rumors. You know many have died doing what you're doing. But as the corners of the story pull back and you learn your way around the consoles, you just might get off this wretched rock.

Nauticrawl unfolds through turn-based exploration, as you puzzle out how everything fits together. Begin each run anew, but bring with you what you’ve learned along the way. 

Think it through. Make mistakes and experiment. 

You can do this.

Had an absolute blast playing this!

Surprisingly, after failing to start the engine on my first run, I fully beat the game on my second (although I'm sure I missed a lot).

What would be the best way to report some minor bugs?


why is it cheaper on steam?


Hi, it should be the same price, are you sure both steam and itch are displaying the same currency?

aaaah, my bad, my steam was in euros! thanks

Nice style and might be right up my alley as I'm a sucker for nautical as well as games with roguelike elements.
Do you plan to release it for Linux as well?

Curious as well. Dunno if it could be run with Wine, otherwise? Definitely want to get this for a friend as a Xmas present but he's a full Linux guy.

sorry @murks and @rykerish, but no planned linux release at this point.
Wine might be a way to go, but I haven't tried.

Hi, thanks for the support! and by all means, go with whatever platform you prefer, I'm 100% committed to support both : )

Ah a man of culture I see. Man, this does give of 20,000 league vibes

Wishlisting this & will buy when you release a GNU/Linux build! Looks exciting :)


Bravo! Just finished the game. It's a great piece of work all around. I can't praise it any more specifically as I want to avoid spoilers, and much of the pleasure of this game is figuring out what the player can even do, then figuring out what to do with that knowledge.

I desperately want to play this game in VR, no gameplay differences needed. The fuddling about of "what does this button do?", with the tactile sense of actually operating this bizarre contraption, would be a sublime experience.


Nethack meet Mirrormoon EP meet 20,000 leagues under the sea.... This game have a great potential. You may dead a lot, but  after every death you'll get new information. This game, is in my top list for this 2019.


This game looks great, really looking forward to giving it a shot! Any word on a release date or possible demo?
