Subnautica: Sleeping with the fishes in Video Gaming Posted August 27, 2018 Been playing this game for about a week, and really enjoying it so far. Like others have mentioned, the horror/suspense elements of the game have been the most surprising and fascinating to me. I don't play many survival games so I don't know how common this approach is, but I am definitely overcome with a sense of fear anytime I travel to unfamiliar areas. I'm at a point in the game where I rarely have to worry about food, water, or oxygen, so the fear I experience is purely based on not knowing what lies ahead of me. I had a particularly unsettling experience early on. I decided that I would try to swim out to a relatively distant landmark. By the time I arrived, night had fallen, and I had not yet constructed a flashlight, so I was swimming blind. As I was attempting to explore the area, I got stuck in some geometry. I attempted to free myself for a good 20-30 seconds, and during that time I didn't notice that the music had changed to a much more aggressive track. I finally noticed the music when I managed to free myself, and only had a few seconds to frantically look around before a massive creature appeared in front of me and killed me in one blow. I still don't know exactly where I ended up when I got out of the geometry glitch, so I get pretty terrified anytime I'm within a few hundred meters of the area I swam out to. Knowing that creatures like that exist in the game (and also NOT knowing precisely where I encountered them) makes exploring new areas genuinely terrifying.
