Hoi!!!

Anyways, here are some things essential for underwater games.

1. Get the background right:

Okay, look. There are only like 7 good terrains for ocean based games.

The water terrains:

IMG_1496 - Frozen Lake
IMG_1498 - White Water
IMG_1499 - Grey Water
IMG_1500 - Pink Water
IMG_1501 - Purple Water
IMG_1502 - Dark Blue Water
IMG_1503 - Blue Water

And the sand terrains:

IMG_1504 - Sand
IMG_1497 - Purple Sand

If you are making the game based underwater, you may want to make it seem underwater. If you are using the sand terrain, place a tinted barrier over the sand on the above layer with collision off.

If you’re making a game that is on land, but you can go in water or through it or something along those lines, you make the water have a teleporter that teleports you into the underwater area.

2. Props:

Use props such as alien grass as seaweed, coral, and rocks to imitate the seafloor.

Corals:

Alien plants(seaweed):

Ideas:

Some underwater based games you can make are:

  • Escape the submarine
  • Underwater city rpg
  • Boat with gear

Underwater things you can make:

Submarine:
This is composed of many props, such as space containers and anvils, and broken glass as the windshield.


You can also make an underwater bed, which is very easy to make. With a semi-transparent metal sign and a blue barrier and stuff, you can make this!

Fish Tank:
Made from Fish, Crab, Lobster, and Shrimp(Which, for some reason, the latter three are in the food section) emojis, copied into Text Boxes, a translucent blueish barrier, translucent coral prop, Sand and Water.

You can also make a few jumping aquatic animals(If that makes any sense) like this(It’s not much to look at right now, just an example):

Underwater Volcano

Design By Haiasi

Using Hay Stacks and tinted barriers you can create an Underwater Volcano!


(I blend in the corn lol, also sorry if the art is bad, this was made on mobile but I tried my best lol.)

Also credit to WolfTechnology for the idea!
I took it from their pyramid guide:

Shipwreck: This is based off the simple concept of putting wood items in the water using a tinted barrier. -CD

Underwater Hallway
glass cup, metal signs, barrier(no collision)
