About DREDGE

About this game

Pilot your own fishing boat in Dredge from Black Salt Games and Team17.

Exploring the Islands

In Dredge, players captain a fishing trawler to explore a collection of remote islands and uncover their secrets. Collectables, wildlife, and over 125 deep sea creatures await in each new region. Players must complete quests to gain access to strange abilities and research special equipment like upgraded boat capabilities. This helps them reach rare fish and valuable deep-sea curios which can be sold for money and to learn more about the area. 

Danger Lurking in the Depths

Dredging the depths reveals someone may be trying to dig up the past, but trusting them may not be enough. Navigating the treacherous waters is difficult during both day and night - sharp rocks, shallow reefs, and thick fog are all threats the player must face as they uncover hidden treasures. 

Strengthen Your Mind 

Players must strengthen their minds if they are to survive night-time trips out on the water. Utilising gained abilities such as upgrades for boat capabilities will help them reach previously inaccessible locations; each offering new opportunities, inhabitants, stories, collectables and wildlife. The Marrows offer a unique sea exploration experience where players can unravel mysteries while fighting off unseen threats in an unpredictable environment.

"It’s indicative of just how important a game’s moment-to-moment hooks are that even with its shortcomings, Dredge is by and large an enjoyable experience."

"Dredge is a low-poly, low-fi experience that punches so far above its weight it feels like eldritch magic at times is behind it all. The game’s painted representations of its...

Really liking this game. Who needs zombies or armies chasing you when there are big fishies and really creepy things happening in the water underneath you!!!

I really enjoyed it. The art is beautiful and it's great fun to discover all the different species of fish. I wish the NPCs were developed a bit more with more quests and possible interactions, but I have heard there will be a storyline DLC coming later this year, so I will be looking forward to that!

By the time of writing this review, I have played this game for 10 hours. This is a nice exploration game with a living world. While you travel the sea, you can witness little events like seeing whales or a kraken. You sell the fish you catch and use the money and resources you gather from wracks to upgrade your ship. All of this is wrapped in a story with quests that will take you around the main islands of the game. As a twist, you have to manage your sanity. If you stay up too long, you will go mad. Until now, I do enjoy the game very much. Played on the Steam Deck

Less than 15hours for all achievements, it deserves to be longer. Few things i didnt understand such as the symbols on the sand at two different campfires.

Dredge is a great game, but it is too short to be perfect as you are getting hooked on the game and ends, which leaves the user a bit disappointed this game would be a 5 star game if only it had more content
