Song of the Deep is...

...unusual in a lot of ways.

Now... at first glance, this appears to be a little underwater exploration/shooter that lifts a few mechanics from my beloved Galak-Z (and it is).  It's even a Metroidvania - which if what Galak-Z started out as - but everything else is weeeird...

First, it's the next thing from Insomniac, who used to make those fantastic Ratchet & Clank games, but more recently has made middling third-person shooters and mostly bad Ratchet & Clank games.   It's also their first large-scale 2D game since... well, ever.

...but not too large-scale.  They're planning on a fifteen dollar price point, which brings us to the second weird thing - Song of the Sea will be the first game published by GameStop.

Not kidding.  There's a whole frickin' GameIndustry article about it.
