Seabed Prelude, a musical VR adventure that launched back in February, 2017, is getting another update so now is the best time to take a good look at it. Featuring a beautifully immersive underwater world, Seabed Prelude takes you on a journey through a post-apocalyptic seascape where you must clear ancient tracks by playing a powerful pipe organ, or alternatively, a system of tesla coils. While traversing the depths you will have control of an RC drone that you can maneuver from within the bathyscaphe to explore stations.

The devs recognized all the issues that the title had during its launch and improved multiple aspects of the game such as drone mechanics, gameplay responsiveness, level art, etc. We have Steam review codes available for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive if you’d like to take a closer look at the game.
