The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human, a striking, yet endlessly lethal journey into the undersea graveyard of humanity’s fall, is now out on PS4 and Xbox One, letting console players try to fight back against the powerful underwater beasts that have overtaken a sunken Earth.
The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human is a breathtaking adventure, one that creates striking landscapes out of its pixel artwork. Thriving sea life swims idly alongside the ruins of humanity’s ads and skyscrapers, the world returned to a time before big business and Silicon Valley startups. Taking it all in is so wonderfully quiet, as well, allowing players to draw in the environments like a soothing breath of air. Things are just incredibly peaceful down here as the player wanders the waves.
Unless, you know, you want to keep probing deeper. There are countless dangers down under da sea, meaning to mince the player’s sub should they not take care. Should those not cause enough trouble, using harpoon-like weapons to fight off bosses with complex moves and weaknesses. It’s all quite jarring after moments of peace, but also teaches the player that moments of calm should be embraced and appreciated, as it is unknown how long they’ll last.
It’s an incredible adventure, so if you missed the PC release and would like to experience a mixture of calm and chaos, go get the console release.
The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human is available for $14.99 on PS4 and Xbox One (and various prices on PC through storefronts you can access from the game’s site). For more information on the game and developer YCJY, you can follow them on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
