In Other Waters
In Other Waters casts you as an AI operator, guiding a stranded xenobiologist as they explore and study a beautiful and strange alien ocean.
About This Game
An alien ocean, rich with impossible life.
A lone xenobiologist, adrift in a world of secrets.
An AI, waking from a dreamless sleep, ready to guide humanity to a terrible truth.
In Other Waters is a unique exploration game, where you must aid xenobiologist Ellery Vas in diving and studying the depths of a distant alien ocean.
Explore an Alien Ocean
Casting you as an Operator AI In Other Waters is structured around an ever-growing, tactile interface. Through this unique mode of interaction you will chart underwater courses, scan environments for vital clues, and navigate this unearthly ocean.
Study New Life
Rather than play as a sci-fi soldier or planetary colonist, In Other Waters gives you the chance to engage with its world through xenobiology. You will assist Ellery in tracking, sampling and studying the planet’s life to understand how to navigate its ocean.
Uncover Terrible Secrets
As you dive deeper into the ocean of Gliese 677Cc, the bond between you and Ellery will be tested by what you discover. The choices you make, and the way you react to Ellery will change the course of the expedition.
"In Other Waters gets weirder and more interesting the closer you look."
"It looks simple (and ever so stylish) yet underneath there's oodles of narrative depth."
"Its Metroid-likeness doesn’t come from finding coloured keys or whatnot, but from studying the world and its ecosystems."

"It’s smart, and capable, and, yes, that instrument-twiddling captures a bit of the spirit of playing with toy instrument panels and fake science tools as a child."
