Trawl Up Some Fish and Elder Gods in Dredge

Fishing Up Some Trouble in 2022


Dredge | Featured

Normally I don’t pay much attention to fishing games. But when said games take place in a Lovecraft haunted world? Then you have my attention. Which is why Dredge looks so very interesting. Developed by Black Salt Games and set to launch on PC and Switch in early 2022, it’s a game with undercurrents of danger right under the surface. By day, you fish, talk with strange inhabitants and upgrade your boat and gear. By night, you can spend time tranquilly hunting for food. Or maybe something worse will hunt you as their next meal…

Dredge | Inhabitants

I love the discordant symmetry of the game, and think it could be something special. I’m especially curious to see how the Lovecraft elements work in the adventure. While they do say some inhabitants will ask you to dredge up dangerous artifacts, I have a feeling there’s some combat against Elder Gods (or their spawn) as well. Granted none of that is clearly shown yet, but there’s time for more reveals.
