Developed by Raffaele Picca (aka PixelGod) Deep Echo is an Oculus Rift VR under water demo that will hopefully lead to a full game. You're 4,000 feet below the surface of the ocean sitting in the seat of a DSM-V Mark 4 submarine tasked to find the blackbox of Saratogas sister ship, the Lexington. The music is composed and produced exclusively by Raffaele Du Marteau and certainly helps to add to the feeling of being under water.
