The expedition was going so well, but at 3,000 feet below the surface, when the ocean turns from blue to black, everything goes wrong.

Something cracks. Water starts to fill at your feet. The crane at the surface jams. The radio line goes quiet. And now the two of you are alone, only a few layers of steel and a quartz window to keep you from death. 

You have one hour of oxygen left.

Conserve breath, repair the bathysphere as much as you can, record what you see in the blue midnight of the ocean...and hope that you will see the surface again.


Inspired by the voyage of the bathysphere and the world's first deep sea dive, Into Blue Midnight is a GMless two-player Wretched and Alone game that lets you play out the last hour of two scientists within the bathysphere when everything goes wrong. 

All it requires are two players, a single six-sided die, a standard deck of cards, a block tower, some tokens, pen and paper, and a container of water.  

CW: this game deals heavily with themes of death, drowning, and despair, and has a high likelihood of player character death
