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 an 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.
