A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Tainted Sea is a simulator/action game that takes place in a future where a deadly super organism, known only as the "Tainted One" threatens to destroy and consume all life on the planet. Using an advanced sub, players will embark on a series of missions that take them into the tainted sea's dark depths. Players will need to defend themselves using their arsenal of torpedoes and other weapons, as they go face off against the bizarre and nightmarish monsters created by the tainted one. With only their sub's headlights and sonar to guide them, players will need to keep their wits about them as the tainted organisms could attack from anywhere.
