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.
