A downloadable game for Windows

WolverineSoft Studio Presents:

Outfit, crew and command your submarine to save what's left of humanity beneath the seas of a ruined earth. Man your sub's systems and take aim in this real-time strategy epic! Inspired by FTL, this subnautic student project serves as our first 2-semester release.

WolverineSoft Studio

Subtension was created by 40 people across two teams at the University of Michigan's WolverineSoft Studio, a student games studio undertaking semester long projects. It is an educational case study of Subset Game's FTL: Faster Than Light, and takes inspiration from its game mechanics as well as other games in the genre. Work on this project took place between May and December 2022. This project represents the studio's first 2-semester long project, the prototype produced by the Summer team can be found here: https://wolverinesoft-studio.itch.io/project-light-prototype
