Wow! This looks cool!! I actually kinda dig the green screen. Now I wonder if this has any kind of items to buy or upgrades to help you get deeper or if it's more of a high score chaser? I'll look into it.

UPDATE:
Did some research. It looks pretty good in motion. The mechanics remind me a lot of Deep Loot by Monster & Monster. You can level up during the game, but once you die, you lose your EXP, but keep you level it looks like. Either way, I'm picking it up now.

While i suck at all these rogue-like games, i had my eyes on this. If i'm not completely wrong, sorry in advance, this adorable art style was made by Folmer Kelly (Irrupt).

Isn't a game like this supposed to have Gamecenter? This hold my buy back. Now i need to know more before diving in deep

You mean gamecenter, so you can share your highscore? As far as i know, this game has an end. So I am not sure why this game needs Gamecenter tbh.

That is correct, I did indeed do the art for The deep!


And yeah, Danny didn't put in Game Center because it's not a high score chaser kind of game.

The objective is to pretty much go as deep as you can go. No upgrades, but you level up the more you play which means you have more air supply, which means deeper exploration. It's a decent roguelike. I would have loved to see upgradable/different weapons and maybe some things to collect though. It's still a good game as is.

Love to hear any feedback you guys have. We have a tonne of ideas in mind for upgrades and future awesome things! We just had to get the app out there and see how it got received before spending another 8 months on it.

So yeh, hopefully we'll be able to cover our bums and add more things for you! You can follow us at @FunnyLookingGs and you know send us feedback or ideas or what not

Thanks again if you have bought!
