In Fathom you play as Nathaniel Lockhart, a shipwrecked Victorian adventurer of the 1870's who is lost at sea in the Caribbean. Lockhart has no memories of the events surrounding the shipwreck, but has visions of a mysterious design for an underwater craft called the Bathysphere and recurring nightmares of a violent attack on the vessel that led to the shipwreck.

Obsessed with the idea that this is the only way to find answers to the mystery, Lockhart pools his resources to build the machine and mounts an expedition back to the murky waters that haunt his every thought. Lockhart must build and master the mysterious underwater craft and ultimately take control of Atlantis, repairing the broken machines of the Atlanteans and solve their ancient puzzles to uncover the mystery.

"At Ironsun, we are massive fans of Steampunk and feel that this sub-genre has been completely underused in today's world of interactive entertainment" said Managing Director, Paul Kelly of Ironsun Studios, "Fathom mixes the myth of the lost city of Atlantis, the worlds of underwater exploration and combat with puzzle solving as players journey deep in the waters of the Caribbean sea, visiting ancient ruins and beautiful caverns in an awe-inspiring beautiful 2.5D world".

The official Kickstarter campaign for Fathom has now gone live until March 29th and is targeting a funding goal of £120,000.

Backers of the Fathom Kickstarter campaign will be rewarded with goods ranging from digital gifts, such as an exclusive in-game relic, to an ancient head stone rendered with the backers' face, to a gameplay demo and awesome limited edition T-shirts and hoodies designed by the Fathom artists for a truly unique steam punk look.
