Welcome to the PledgeManager for 🐟 Aquanauts - Discover the Deep 🐟!
If you missed our campaign, don't dismay! Just choose an option below.

Aquanauts is an underwater research and engine building game for 2-4 players. Send your aquanauts out to gather algae, build new facilities, and load up the submarine with newly-discovered samples. Specialise in researching different species or constructing impressive research stations to earn more kudos through public objectives, whilst keeping an eye on your opponents’ progress. Working together in adjacent research facilities can earn you additional resources, 

but ultimately only one person can become the most accomplished aquanaut.

See below for an overview of how you can #discoverthedeep in Aquanauts. Keep your eyes peeled for an update during the campaign where we'll release the pdf rulebook to read through as well as a tabletopia and print 'n' play version of the game to try out!

Local game stores, board game cafes, organised play venues and other retailers and businesses form the backbone of our community, providing a space for all us gamers to play, discover new stuff, meet other gamers and more.

ITB owes a lot of its success to the wonderful people in stores across the UK, convention organisers and others that have supported us, and we want to make sure that they can be a part of this campaign too!

Retailers that take part on the campaign, just like individual backers, are taking a chance on us and what we're trying to do - and for that we're really grateful.

Below you will find the beautiful faces of the incredible team behind this project!

Marco returns as project illustrator and graphic designer, Rose infiltrates yet another development project and this project introduces a new character, Michael!

Also featuring Linda & Kaysi, our newest recruits!

A massive thank you to Rose, who's tirelessly tested and researched the game, Marco and Michael for fiercely creative work, and to Lawrence and Jon for their excellent video work!
