HMS Marulken Preview

Usually when things say "coop multiplayer" it's an instant no-go for me due to my massive dislike of people, but this game actually got me excited! A massive part of the appeal of submarine titles for me, is the depth of atmosphere (hurr hurr submarine pun) created from being chased by destroyers; the sonar ringing off the hull and the last minutes manoeuvres to avoid the depth charges.

If the game can pull it off, it promises very tense gameplay, with an exceptionally strong reliance on actual co-operation to even just stay alive! Having one person on each station, cut off from the works of the other crew members, means you are really reliant on everyone doing their jobs effectively and relying on communication skills so much, you could probably put a successful game down on your CV (disclaimer: don't actually do this)!

Summary
HMS Marulken is a very interesting take on the submarine simulator genre, that promises - and delivers - exciting and atmospheric gameplay that forces you and your crew to cooperate and communicate effectively to survive the icy waters off the coast of Sweden. The alternative history story will likely deliver a refreshing look at an already well used period in military history.

Although bugs are present, the developers are very keen to hear from the community and are determined to act on them to deliver the best possible gameplay (I've spoke to them myself). This is an alpha, so some issues are to be expected, but I'm confident that with due diligence, Skvader Studios will deliver an excellent game!

An interesting take on the submarine genre, delivered with well thought out gameplay mechanics and brilliant graphics!


I really enjoyed my time with HMS Marulken, and both myself and my friends are keen to get back to our stations in more videos. As such, I have decided to back the project on Kickstarter. The game still needs funding to ensure the resources are in place to develop the game, so if you like the sound of the game, then please take the time to back the project at the Kickstarter link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...arulken-reboot
