A beautiful young woman wakes up in a vast and mysterious undersea temple complex, not knowing who or where she is. She soon learns that she has been frozen in a death-like slumber in a secret crypt for over a century. Now she must escape the crypt and explore the ancient underwater chambers to unravel the mystery. Use your Hidden Object and puzzle-solving skills to help Anna unlock the enchanted Royal Relics, and reveal the terrible secrets of the Empress of the Deep!
Empress of the Deep plays like a typical hidden object game with locations cluttered with random junk and mini-puzzles in between. The environment and graphics style is reminiscent of the early non-violent puzzle-solving adventures games such as Myst.
Of particular interest in the artwork is how various icons make it into the ruins of this futuristic civilization, set in the 22nd century. If you pay attention to the beautifully conceived underground city, you will see various classic items and symbols represented, such as The Thinker, the Statue of Liberty, and the Gordian Knot.
