Take a deep Breath and follow the Echo

Dive into a hostile, alien world and explore the sea 4000 feet below the oceans surface.
Take a seat in a DSM-V Mark 4 submarine and find the blackbox of Saratogas sister ship, the Lexington.
Are you up to this task, commander?

0.1 - First release, known bugs:
- crashes randomly in rare occasions.

While the Experience already offers a good experience, it is still worked on giving it more polishing, especially in the last quarter.
Also the performance is a big problem, I am working on getting the best out of the engine, but there is still some room to get more out of it
