Inspired by immersive RPGs from the 90s Sonar Shock looks great

By - | Views: 23,128

Sonar Shock looks a bit System Shock-like and that's a great thing, as it was inspired by various immersive RPGs from the 90s. We've had no shortage of excellent games arrive this year and Sonar Shock looks like another you don't want to miss and it has Native Linux support too.

"A Soviet dream turned nightmare: Explore the now empty halls of a Soviet super submarine and discover what caused its supernatural downfall."

Expect some quirky controls with this one, as it really does mechanically resemble the older games.
