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...

Great experience, if youre someone who scares easily but you still like scary games, this is a great option. The only thing I will say is it's pretty short

Spooky and fun. This little indie offers a lot more than just cruising around the sea in your boat. Stubble upon shipwrecks, dredge up loot, all while avoiding the night terrors…

Dredge is a super fascinating and engaging blend of mechanics, with a wholly unique theme and setting. It manages to be chilled out and tense at the same time. There's a lot of different things going on, but the game never feels overwhelming, rather it feels wonderfully deep, with a lot of rewards for intentional exploration.

This game is sweet. I love inventory management and upgrade your stuff kinda games. This game was made for me. Between the game play and music I couldn't get enough, I wish there was more end of game content(places to explore, more upgrades) but maybe in future itll have some dlcs. I'm super picky when it comes to spending money and time on games and this was well worth every penny\second for me.

This is a captivating game in the weirdest way, which matches the eerie tone of the game. I enjoyed every moment of the loop and couldn’t put it down. I’m super stoked to see what the devs put out from this point on.
