Narcosis is a survival story set at the hostile depths of the Pacific Ocean. Stranded after an accident, an industrial diver takes desperate steps to surface before his oxygen - and sanity - give out.

Narcosis began as a project at ENJMIN, a prestigious videogame school in Angouleme, France. The game was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Student Competition category at the 2013 Independent Games Festival. Currently under construction using the Unity3D game development engine, Narcosis is scheduled for release Q3 2015.
