How to make your own Deep Sea game


Robin Arnott's Deep Sea is a harrowing, totally unique game that, until now, could only be experienced at an event attended by Arnott, because the installation relies on a special customized gas mask, blacked out to prevent any light from getting in, and fitted with microphones to pick up your own breathing – making it so that if you breathe too loudly, you can't hear your orders, and can't find the enemies you're tracking by audio.

Arnott has released the Deep Sea software, and provided Tech Hive with detailed, step-by-step instructions for how to make the installation. If you have access to a gas mask, a steady hand, and the ability to withstand extremely claustrophobia-inducing situations, you can try Deep Sea for yourself. (By the way, this is not an April Fools' Day joke.)

Arnott is now working on SoundSelf, a meditative game that responds to vocal input with visuals and music. The Kickstarter drive for that has six days left.
