A lonely diver tries to find a way to connect with profound feelings while hunting for treasure.

This game was made for the May 2018 Bitsy Jam: Ocean.

Most of this game was implemented using ruin's "Image to Bitsy" tool.

Most of the sketches were created using the art of Ernst Haeckel as a base.

This game was made as an exploration of the possibilities of Bitsy, a browser based game creation tool developed by Adam Le Doux.

Cool game man!

It's impressive what you can do with a simple tool like Bitsy! I really hope to see more from you!!!

This is really good. It's really just a short exploration game with a very personal choice at the end.

I was fine playing with the primitive graphics we see at the beginning, but I love how the deeper you go the more amazing things you start to see, and the sketches are actually gorgeous. The range of colors you used is perfect for a dive deeper and deeper in the depth. I think you really capture the mood as the player goes deeper.

You could add music, but if you do, I wouldn't go for anything really melodic or rhythmic. Try adding a soundscape of some sort. Either something eerie that reminds you of outer space, or something gentle and warm like we see in a lot of ocean documentaries. But make it more of a mood-setter than a song. In fact, it would be cool if it started off bright and got slowly darker as the player descends.

The choice at the end was unexpected, and although it seemed likely to me that I do one and then come back the other, I understood that it was more representative of a perspective. I picked humbler selection and was happy with the ending I got.

Fine job!

Some music wont be bad and a mute button in case the music gets annoying.And in rest its a nice idea!
