Developer The Chinese Room and publisher Secret Mode have released a brand-new behind-the-scenes video for its upcoming title Still Wakes the Deep. The new video goes deep into how the game’s world is and the inspirations that went into the game. Still Wakes the Deep is an upcoming narrative horror game and the new BTS video is titled An Introduction to Worldbuilding which dives deep into how the world of the game was developed and what was the main inspiration behind its spooky and atmospheric environments.

Check out the new BTS video below before we jump into additional details:

In the BTS video, the developers explain the narrative of the game and research driving development. The narrators include Lead Environment Artist Iain Gillespie, Associate Art Director Laura Dodds, and Lead Designer Rob McLachlan who offer a behind-the-scenes look into this upcoming horror game. The developers explain how the environment will evolve over time along with key inspirations behind the horror. The period, the geographical location of the rig, everything plays a key role in the story of the game.

For the game’s development, the team developed a fascination for cranes and scoured British Petroleum’s documentary archives for an authentic representation of a Scottish oil rig in the 1970s. The game is played in first-person, and you step into the shoes of an off-shore oil rig worker who is fighting for his life through a vicious storm, perilous surroundings, and the dark, freezing North Sea Waters. There is no form of communication active, and all of the exits are blocked. Amidst all of this chaos, an unknown horror has boarded the rig and you have to survive.
