Dive into the dark and dangerous world of Barotrauma, a cooperative submarine disaster simulator videogame published by Daedalic Entertainment.

Cooperate To Survive

Players control a submarine and its crew as they explore the depths of the hostile foreign moon Europa. The moon is full of danger, and the players must work together to find a way to survive.

You can choose a battery powered submarine, dive 2000 meters down into the ocean, run out of power and get stuck. You can inject alien parasites into your best friend, watch him turn into an eldritch horror of tentacles and pain, and infect the rest of the crew mates. Play with your friends

Literally one of the best games ever. You got your steal coffin, and you got sea monsters on Europa. Just buy it, I pick it over the four AAA games I have that I still haven't even played because of this game.

Pretty cool game. It is VERY overwhelming at first, as the game hardly explains what you need to do. But it is quite entertaining stumbling around a submarine with friends equally as confused.

Exactly what you expect. Explore alien depths with intricate submarine mechanics requiring coordination and teamplay. Has to be played with friends to unleash its full potential.

The atmosphere of the submarines, the fun animations, the satisfying upgrades and crafting, all make this game perfect for singleplayer, and multiplayer alike, sometimes you’ll be faced with some unfair scenarios, but submarines are pretty much always and unfair situation

Great game, recommended!

Very good game, quite tricky at times, but still insanely fun. Keep in mind that it does have a learning curve.

I bought a copy for myself and a few of my friends. If you're into exploring the depths of the ocean, potentially being stuck inside the submarine for extended amounts of time without too much action at times, and scrambling to salvage from mistakes, this may be a game for you. The only issue is the single-player where you'll be stuck at playing captain because bots aren't really smart enough to navigate a submarine from Point A to Point B.

TL;DR: A very solid co-op experience, especially for fans of horror!

A fantastic game with friends, albeit with pretty bad NPC AI. Lots of chaos in missions with the quiet planning and organization beforehand, amazing atmosphere both in outposts and out, and consistent updates for years with a great modding scene. Frequently on sale for cheap enough to buy for the whole gang, and works well enough on any PC not made of toilet rolls and tinfoil. Some bugs than can be pretty frustrating, and it's an odd to learn game, but it keeps me and my friends coming back regularly to see what new horrors in the deep are waiting.
