Subnautica - Sparse Reef

A more quiet and contemplative area of Subnautica's ocean. We developed this out of a desire to have a less vibrant, more sparse coral reef zone in the game. Using photo references, we came up with an area with a reduced colour palette and many empty areas, that was nevertheless teeming with life and keeping some important secrets.

Subnautica is a BAFTA-nominated open world survival exploration game set on an alien ocean planet. After crash-landing, you must learn to survive, develop technology, dive deeper, and ultimately learn the secrets of this strange world.
