PS4 Exclusive Deep Down: Capcom Wants Memorable and Charming Characters, Immersive World and More

on February 15, 2015 3:38 PM

The upcoming PS4 exclusive free to play action RPG Deep Down is still mostly an enigma. A playable version was available at Tokyo Game Show 2013, then the game dropped back into semi-limbo, with sporadig glimpses, screenshots and videos among months of silences and several delays of the Japanese beta, which still dosn’t have a firm release window.

Recently, Capcom Online Games renewed its career opportunities site, and it included several ads for the development of Deep Down, that give us a glimpse on what kind of experience the developer is aiming for.

GUI Designer

Understanding the specification of the system, the UI designers should be in compliance with the game concept and the view of the world, and an expression of the perfect functional beauty.

The excitement of the game and the impression it gives are determined by numerous effects. Please express the image that you envision in the game.

3D CG Background Designer 

Background designs that make the player feel immersed in the world. Using your past experience, please express the essence of gameplay directly connected with the game’s design.

2D Artwork Designer

Even if the design is innovative, if characters aren’t “charming,” the game can’t be enjoyed properly. Please convey entertainment from the point of view of 2D artwork.

Animation Designer

People, animals, monsters, etc… The behavior of each makes the game beautiful. Let’s deliver a more realistic and dynamic experience to the player.

Looks like Capcom is aiming to impress us with Deep Down, and what we’ve seen so far was definitely impressive. Hopefully, though, we won’t have to wait too long to be impressed. I’ve been waiting to put my greedy paws on this game for a long while, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
