‘It’s not the most glamourous setting’: Still Wakes the Deep’s developers discuss why the oil rig setting works so well

Abandoned locations go hand in hand with horror games where players can be isolated, vulnerable, and, if you’re anything like me, confused. So Still Wakes the Deep’s location isn’t out of the ordinary for its genre, but even still, an oil rig off the Scottish coast is a pretty sick setting for some terrifying encounters. 

“It’s not the most glamorous setting, it’s not a fantastical setting, which players like,” associate art director Laura Dodds tells me. “We also don’t tend to hear stories about working people. I guess that’s why it’s not been focused on previously, but it’s brilliant.”
