The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human is an atmospheric underwater action-adventure where you will be able to explore the perilous ruins of humanity.

The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human portrays the end of civilization as we know it. In the distant future - and as a result of climate change and a weakening sun - humans are forced to live underwater in order to survive. The heat from the planet’s inner crust may have kept the deepest cities alive - but as resources began to dwindle in 2971, it was decided that humanity’s only chance of survival would be to send subaquatic spaceships to a nearby wormhole to look for habitable planets. However, things did not go as planned. When one of the ships (Argo9) returns hundreds of thousands of years later, it becomes clear that humans are now extinct.

What happened while the Argo9 was away is a mystery solved only through the faint memories of humanity’s last automated machines, which endured thanks to a central power line. No one is left to tell the story of mankind’s last days. Without records or witnesses, the player must uncover and find answers.

The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human puts players in control of the long lost spaceship/submarine hybrid, Argo9 - which traverses the ancient ruins of human civilization at its technological, melancholy-infused peak.

The game challenges players to explore every nook and cranny in search of hidden passages and essential ship upgrades (such as boosters, extra armor, and weapons), while facing terrifying sea creatures and 10 intense boss fights that are a sight to behold.

Let curiosity be your guide on the inevitable voyage of extinction in The Aquatic Adventure of the Last Human!
