What our players say...

 

"10/10 This game is the PINNACLE of an early access game This is EXACTLY what early access should be."

"Challenging and very, very addictive. It's hard to believe this thing is still in Alpha"

"as you're familiar with the build mechanics the game opens up into a fun and rewarding experience. - Superb!"

"Absolutley flawless, and its even still in early access with this level of polish!"

"This game has absolutely blown me away. I'll admit it's difficult to learn at first, but well worth it."

"From The Depths has everything a game needs. It is not a Minecraft Clone, it is not Robocraft, either. It is pure and utter Sandbox with Vehicles."

"Another wonderful thing about this game is the developer's 100% commitment"

"It's a near-finished product with the developer Nick Smart taking an interest in the community and taking their advice"

All quotes are taken verbatim from user reviews on our own Steam Page go and see for yourself! At the time of writing we have 176 reviews of which a staggering 94% are positive. We are active in our community always listening and responding to feedback, we work with our players to give them the features and improvements they want and even feature exceptional community content in the game itself. A lot of early-access games talk about letting players help guide the development, with From the Depths it gets done.

So what are you waiting for? Unleash your imagination and go to war with From The Depths!

  • Add an air pump controller! July 21, 2017
    I have a submarine that I made and I made it so it is neutrally buoyant. So it pretty much allows me to manoeuvre it around with the dive planes and rudder. I want the sub to only be manual control. So no AI. But I need an air pump controller, so if I want […]
  • Shell speed not consistent with the wiki formula July 21, 2017
    I've been trying to write a program to optimise Flak CIWS shells given a lowest acceptable speed, autoloader size and desired damage (probably 100). In the process I've got a class with methods for working out shell speed, reload and cooldown times based on the gauge, d, the number of gunpowder casings, n_GP, the number […]
  • Question/problem with obstructed view in build mode July 21, 2017
    Love this game... been on the alpha for a while and spent ridiculous hours in the sandbox mode mostly. I like having the two build modes and use the keyboard mode for building and camera mode for inspecting, but the issue I'm having is with the camera mode and how there's always a selected block […]
  • How do I make a plane? July 21, 2017
    Hello Ive made several ships and tanks before, but i've never made a plane. I've tried once, but it was a disaster. I don't really know where to start, can anyone help?
  • [SS] Thyr - Lowering broadside minimum range (and some other minor changes) July 21, 2017
    So after hearing that the Thyr likes running away, which is not a very desirable trait for a ship with only forwards-facing main guns, I went ahead and re-configured the ship's broadside settings in an attempt to keep her from exposing the vulnerable aft so often. In addition to that, I did the following while […]
  • not sure how to make a "Object avoidance" system with ACB's July 20, 2017
    I can not figure out how to create a object avoidance system so my hover ships do not hit each other or a enemy building, like how planes will avoid each other in the air by veering right.
  • Missiles too weak now? July 20, 2017
    So HE is already useless against armor. But they were made viable for torpedoes due to underwater effect. Thumper is pretty useless, literal surface impact damage. Missiles aren't that fast or has a lot of mass. Before, frag was decent against armor to a degree. Now it is useless. Only thing left for missiles is […]
