About
Water Game is an aptly named game where the water level has been raised, and coral reefs have taken over the world. You awake inside an escape pod on a water dominated world where all of the above-ground life is all but dead, but the underwater life has exploded into new heights.

Gameplay
Players will spend most of their time exploring an underwater world, accruing special items, and hoping that the wildlife doesn't notice you.

The first goal is to survive and scavenge for items and tools, later on, you will explore the deeper parts of the ocean and gather resources to improve your tools. Numerous creatures will roam the world, most of them are out to make you, or a nearby mob, their next meal. Occasionally, you will encounter wrecked ships and escape pods that will give insight into what happened to you and your ship.


Questions and Answers

Q: "This sounds cool, is the game released yet?"
A: Not yet officially, I have released an alpha version but I still have some minor issues I need to iron out before I feel like the game is ready. If you want to help, I have a list of issues here: https://github.com/lefty-studios/water_game/projects/2

Q: "Eww, why are you using GitHub?"
A: Because.

Q: "Why is the game named "Water Game?"
A: Because I'm too lazy to think of a real name Because the name "water_game" is a parody of "minetest_game."

Screenshots:
Coming soon. ;)

This game sounds interesting. Will there be "alien" creatures?
My best mods: space_travel, time_travel, and rocket.

Maybe. ;)

The creator of the Paleotest and Draconis mods is making a mob roster for this game.
Stay tuned!

I downloaded the alpha game and tried it out. So far, I like this game. The technology (such as the phasers and crafting table), underwater landscapes, and the creatures are all cool.

For some reason, the starting pod is underground. Is that just a bug?

Thanks, the game is still a work in progress.
The pod starting underground is definitely a bug...
Can you send screenshots of the pod?

Here's a screenshot. I'm using version 5.0.1, which is not the most recent version.

Hi Lefty, looks like a good mod! Unfortunately I can't get it to run - possibly because I'm playing on a Mac. Details of this machine: Macbook Pro with Catalina, MAC OS 10.15.5.
Version of Minetest 5.2.0 for Mac.

The problem I'm having is this:

2020-07-06 17:19:50: WARNING[Main]: Undeclared global variable "armor" accessed at ...ents/Resources/games/water_game-0.1/mods/phaser/init.lua:14

2020-07-06 17:19:50: ACTION[Main]: Server: Shutting down

THe game needs to find 'armor'. I've tried several possibilities but no luck. Can you advise please? I'm really looking forward to swimming with the fishes!

The game crashed when I first tried it, after spending several minutes I got to run without crashing on me.
I copied some of the files from the default folder in Minetest game and that seemed to work, also the mese water source texture was missing, so I added in a generic one and now the errors don't show up.
Still plenty of errors I couldn't figure out, but otherwise it works great.
I like the ocean theme of the game.
