Ico gets eco in the first trailer for Submerged

Submerged explores a vaguely serene, post-apocalyptic world that is, well, submerged, thanks to global warming, melting icecaps, and poorly constructed window air conditioner units. We’ve been tracking it for awhile, through screenshots and Vines, and now the Australian studio Uppercut Games has released a full trailer. Seeing this thing in motion teases out the Ico-ness of it: the sense of melancholy, the earnestness of its central relationship, the way it explores a brown palette without looking, like, all brown everything. 

The game is due out next year.
