I started watching a Let’s play series on Subnautica while I was doing my own series on Space Engineers. I got so immersed in it that I stopped part way through and wanted to play the game by myself. It seems to have a gripping story and absolutely gorgeous views.
I dusted off my credit card, bought Subnautica and dived right into it. This is what happened.
I will be continuing both these series in parallel.
#01 – Getting my feet wet
In this episode, I get acquainted with the surroundings and craft myself a knife. I also end up dying 😦
#02 – Let There Be Light
I craft a flashlight so I can see in the dark, which is a lot of places / time. I go hunting for materials and end up blowing up 😦
#03 – Don’t Die
The main aim of this episode was to not die. Do I succeed? I also go find a lifepod.
#04 – Lifepod 17
I start this episode trying to find some silver, and end up going to find Lifepod 17.
#05 – Explorin’
We continue our hunt for silver, lead and the final piece of the seamoth. Trying to remain alive at the same time.
#06 – The Sunbeam
We get a message from the Sunbeam telling us that they are about to land. Rescue at last! or is it?
#07 – Lifepod 13
We head out to lifepod 13. On the way back, “Detecting multiple leviathan class lifeforms in the region. Are you certain whatever you’re doing is worth it?”
#08 – The Aurora
We head over to the Aurora and manage to explore a part of it.
#09 – Time Capsules
We head over to Second Officer Keens lifepod and find a few time capsules along the way.
#10 – Close Encounters
Try to head over to lifepod 12 which has sunk over 250m, but we don’t make it that far. Why not?
#11 – Land Ahoy
Head over to the co-ordinates provided by Second Officer Keen. Still scared of water from the last episode.
#12 – The Jellyshroom Habitat
Follow the Degasi into the Jellyshroom cave where we discover some treasures.
#13 – Stasis Rifle
We head back into the Jellyshroom cave looking for Lithium but ending up finding a lot more.
#14 – Wanted: Gel Sack
Realising how crucial these little things are, and regretting accidentally eating a bunch of them, I try and find some. Do I succeed?
#15 – Some Base Building
A little bit of base maintenance and upgrades. Making life easier 😉
#16 – Back to the Aurora
We go back to the Aurora, trying to get back into the Prawn Bay.
#17 – Lifepod 4
We try to find Lifepod 4 which is in Reaper territory. Scary!
#18 – Avoiding Lifepod 12
Terrified of going back to lifepod 12, I find something else to do.
#19 – Balls
I visit lifepod 12 (the balls). I then make my way to the Degasi habitat at 500m and run into a field of blue balls. On my way back, Balls! What the hell was that?
#20 – PRAWN
Finally get the parts together to build a PRAWN suit.
#21 – Torpedoes
Get down the 500m deep Degasi habitat, then decide I probably need some torpedoes.
#22 – Crabsquid Ahoy
We head back to the 500m Degasi habitat, torpedoes armed and full of bravery.
#23 – Enforcement Platform
I try and find the island which shot down the sunbeam again and this time, I succeed. Lots of exploration and finding lots of new things.
#24 – Enforcement Platform pt 2
Offload all the loot and go back to the Enforcement Platform for more explorin’. What is that alien device that needed an ion cube?

This episode is full of surprises.
