Try life as a strange jellyfish on a remarkable world. Learn to fly through the skies of a psychedelic Venus to explore and make your species flourish.

Deep Under The Sky details the strange and exotic life cycle of the Venusian Jellyfish, a symbiotic creature which lives amongst the majestic Sky Whales, high in the clouds of Venus. Scatter your children among the Sky Whales and then help them flourish by nurturing them and fighting off the parasites that threaten to make a meal of them.

Come with us, relax, learn to really fly.

The gameplay is a deep exploration of single button input, and the player triggers a string of jellyfish abilities one after the other to achieve complex and organic results.

Float through 80 levels in 4 worlds. Compare times with your friends and try to find all the secrets to unlock a darker, harder difficulty.
