It was supposed to be a simple mission. All I had to do was collect some samples from a contaminated area under the sea. As soon as I left the ship, everything went wrong. Communications were lost and my submarine crashed on the ocean floor. I survived, but my oxygen is running low and I can't contact anyone for help. All I can do is move forward with this operations drone as my only companion. Trouble is, it's been acting sort of weird lately. Almost as if it's trying to sabotage my mission...
Anoxemia is a story-driven exploration game that puts you in control of the scientist Dr. Bailey and his operations drone, ATMA. Search the ocean floor as you discover and extract samples from the bowels of the underwater caves. Danger lurks in each passageway, everything from poison drifts to powerful ocean currents, mines leftover from the war, and mobile machines running haywire. There's also the ever-present risk of running out of oxygen. Fortunately, ATMA can help guide you to your destination using a few special tools and upgrades. Assuming you can find them, that is.
The world of Anoxemia is both breathtaking and perilous. The seas are quiet most of the time, but as soon as you see a flashing light or hear a noise echoing from the distance, you know it's time to run. Of course, there are some dangers you just can't run from. Dangers you don't even know exist. Dangers from within...

Dr. Bailey, explorer, awakens with a diving suit into the depths darker, with little oxygen in the reserves and a strange drone speaker, called ATMA. The protagonist has to fight for its survival, exploring the depths of the sea in search of three elements - sometimes plants, sometimes documents of sunken ships - to pass on to the next. The plot of the game must be built reassembling the fragments of a story always ambiguous, never entirely clear, which leaves many doubts and anxieties. Despite the player directly controls only the machine ATMA, will be important to exploit the ability of man to carry and place explosives, as a shield against ordigini able to decrease the energy of ATMA, and to collect the precious resources that constitute the target of each level. At the same time, the drone is practically essential: it has a radar able to highlight the dangers hidden from view and indicate the location of items to collect, it comes with a handy grappling hook to move some objects and can sidetrack drones opponents can block the movements of the doctor. The title is very difficult, almost unnerving, because of its structure trial and error, most of the roughness derived from a simple control system but not always reactive. Anoxemia is a title undoubtedly fascinating, but not for all. The awkward design choices and the nature of the game makes it very harsh, a product inadvisable players disinclined to trial and error and even fewer patients.
