Unusual Lovecraftian Horror RPG Dredge Announced

Black Salt Games team is working on Dredge, an unusual fishing RPG with horror elements, inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

  • Developer: Black Salt Games
  • Publisher: Black Salt Games
  • Genre: Fishing RPG
  • Platform: PC, Switch
  • Release Date: 2022

Independent New Zealand studio Black Salt Games has announced its first project. It turned out to be an unusual fishing RPG enriched with elements of Lovecraftian horror, called Dredge. The game is to be released next year on PC and Nintendo Switch.

The action of the game starts on the archipelago known as Marrow and the surrounding ocean. At the beginning we will have only a small boat. Fishing will provide us with income to upgrade the ship, e.g. by installing a more powerful engine or expanding the hold, as well as buying new rods, nets and crab pots. With time, we'll buy a better boat and get access to richer fishing grounds.

Fishing will not be the only source of income. We will quickly receive offers to salvage artifacts lying at the bottom of the ocean. These orders will be lucrative, but risky, and moreover, as the plot develops, the employer will give us more and more reasons to distrust him.

The ocean in Dredge will be a dangerous place. Along with the usual hazards such as storms and shallows, our lives will be threatened by mysterious beasts that attack both from the deep and from the air. Survival and earning will be facilitated by supernatural powers, which we can acquire thanks to the artifacts extracted from the seabed.
