What is Project Nautilus?

Project Nautilus is a slow paced, exploration focused, 3D first person action game where the player takes the role of an underwater drone operator hired by the Isthmus Corporation to expand the company's autonomous underwater drone network. The player must remotely pilot a drone through a labyrinthian set of underwater caves, installing wireless signal extenders and eliminating any threat to those signal extenders. As the pilot dives deeper, slowly they begin to realize that these caves are far older and more alive than their employer is trying to convince them.
