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."

This game vibes, but the gameplay is shruggable at best.

This game has atmosphere, and dread. It builds itself very well, or at least in as far as a semi-casual game can. When I play this game, I feel as if it's not as deep as I want it to be. As I think it could be. I feel as if we could touch the characters more. Build up an image of the world. Maybe I am lacking in imagination, and want others to do the work for me. But I enjoy the worlds I get from playing games. In fact, it's one of the biggest reasons why I play them. In that sense, this game give style. It does give lore. But is it oozing with it? Meh. It's an independent game, and I think it's really solid for what I'm guess is something that was built during the pandemic. I like Squire for Hire and OG Tetris, so this is up my alley there. I hate quick time events, and input for attacks (like in RPGs). So that's a big no there for me on that front. I've been playing oodles of Intergalactic Fishing. I think once you understand the ins and outs of catching fish in that game, it does fishing right. It feels better than having to get the right clicks in a circle. In fact, if I had to be honest. For a game about fishing, the fishing is probably my least favorite part of this game. So take that as you'd like.

great game, at sub $20 this felt like a steal, a little short, but a GREAT experience. don't use guides on your first playthrough, 100% is easy to obtain on your second play with a guide.

A fun and very atmospheric game making the most of the low poly approach. Good casual play as you slowly unravel the story. I had a great time with the game.

I loved this game so much, I think I wish it was even longer. I think had a nice combination of ease and difficulty, and the graphics are almost comforting.
