A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The Dreadnought is a short horror game following the HauntedPS1 Summer Jam's theme of submechanophobia, the fear of submerged man-made objects. In this game you pilot an unmanned submersible drone, tasked with finding a yacht that went missing shortly after its owner died.

For most of us who worked on this game, this was our first proper foray into game development. We're very proud of what we accomplished, and we hope you enjoy the game!

This was a very creepy game. I find being underwater to be very intimidating and tense since you have no idea what is around the corner. You did a great job at recreating that tension. Keep up the good work! 

Took a short hiatus from YouTube and returned with this, very well made! I'm impressed! Love the mechanics and theme of it all.

This game requires patience in the tense pursuit of uncovering a deep and disturbing underwater mystery! Gameplay begins 29:10 -

Hey, the sense of dread in this was great! For a first outing I think you really nailed the sense of dread and, without spoiling anything, I like the idea of the reveal in the end.

Will be keeping my eyes on all involved for future projects :)

This is a great first game! I hope you enjoyed collaborating on this project and had a lot of fun! I've posted a review on the jam submission page, and made a playthrough video: 



the ending felt way more funny than scary :|

The game's concept is not something new. I've played many like this, especially the most recent one "Turgor Pressure". Now, to say the game is bad, no, it has good sound design and well-built atmosphere, although the pacing is super slow and the conclusion to the story feels a bit weak. Unfortunately, I did not finish the game, but, if you want to see the full review, check out the video:
