Hidden Deep Is A 2D Action Game Made By One Person And Inspired By Alien And Half-Life

The Lord of the Rings: Gollum's publisher is bringing out a new game in 2021 that takes place in a suboceanic research facility filled with aliens.


The publisher of the Lord of the Rings game centered around Gollum has announced the next game it will publish, and it's completely different. Daedalic Entertainment has announced it will publish the game Hidden Deep, which is a game made by a single person: Łukasz Kałuski.

Kałuski started the game in 2014 as a passion project and Kałuski has been funding it alone for three years. "Without a doubt, Hidden Deep is the biggest project of my life into which I put all my heart and sweat and I love doing this," Kałuski said on his website.
