** Aquanox II was also at one point supposed to get an remake on the PS2 with the subtitle ''Angel's Tears.'' An combination of the game not passing Sony's quality assurance test and the developer shutdown meant it never got released.

The franchise stayed dormant for a decade, as Massive Development was shut down by their parent company, [=JoWood=] in 2005. [=JoWood=] themselves was later bought up by ''Nordic Games'' who at gamescon 2013 announced that they are working on a reboot of the franchise. That reboot turned out to be ''Aquanox: Deep Descent'', [[https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806010995/aquanox-deep-descent/ funded]] on Website/Kickstarter in September 2015.

In the first game, you are [[AwesomeMcCoolName Emerald "Deadeye" Flint]], a [[{{Privateer}} mercenary]] fighting a race of cyborgs called the Bionts (picking up from where you left off in ''Archimedean Dynasty'').

In the second game (whose events happen simultaneously with those of the first) you play as William Drake, a young (and initially [[WideEyedIdealist quite naive]]) man whose cargo freighter gets hijacked by a bunch of pirates, led by a treasure-obsessed man named Amitab, who then shanghai him into fighting for them.

* LoweredMonsterDifficulty: The Bionts, the BigBad faction of ''Archimedean Dynasty'', have been reduced to a weak group of [[TheRemnant Remnants]] who serve as the enemies in the game's first Act. Their ships are noticeably weaker and slower than they were in ''Archimedean Dynasty''; justified in that the remaining Bionts in Aqua are stray units leftover from the destruction of their civilization in the first game, who have not been maintained or repaired for more than a year.

An [[RecycledINSPACE underwater]] [[SimulationGame vehicular combat sim]], created by now defunct German developer Massive Development (not to be confused with Swedish studio Massive Entertainment). The game is a direct sequel to their earlier title ''ArchimedeanDynasty'' (a.k.a. ''[[MarketBasedTitle Silent Running]]'', which takes place [[ContinuityNod in the same]] [[TheVerse fictional universe]] a few years prior.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''Aquanox'' and ''Aquanox II'' start and end in the same in-universe timeframe, each with a rather large cliffhanger promising more epic adventures [[spoiler:involving an all-out war with the bionts and their masters, and possibly a LetsYouAndHimFight situation with Flint and Drake.]] No sequel was ever made.

* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: The surface has been rendered uninhabitable and the oceans are covered with an impenetrable layer of highly radioactive dead organic matter which makes travel to the surface impossible. What's left of mankind lives purely UnderTheSea.



* TheStoic / DeadpanSnarker: Flint (in contrast to ''ArchimedeanDynasty'', where he was more of a cheerful LoveableRogue).



* SubmarinePirates: The world of Aqua has them. In fact, the main plot of ''Aqua Nox: Revelation'' is kicked off when your character's [[TheMothership home sub]] is hijacked by pirates while he is away, and he is forced to deal with them from then on ([[spoiler:one of them later turns out to be his uncle]]).

* MegaCorp: [=EnTrOx=] Corporation. Its three main products/services are right there in the name: energy, transportation, and oxygen (well, a mix of helium, as oxygen is toxic at that pressure, but [=EnTrHe=] wouldn't sound as cool).


Added DiffLines:

* WaterIsAir: The small, one-man subs maneuver very much like aircraft. The game tries to HandWave this by claiming that supercavitation technology allows subs to do exactly that. Supercavitation is a RealLife technology that creates an air bubble around the craft to reduce the drag and speed it up. The technology is currently being used to build some super-fast Russian torpedoes. In fact, DARPA is supposedly working on a way to create fast-moving mini-subs for quick underwater transportation using his method. However, currently, DARPA isn't even sure that a submersible craft can even turn when using supercavitation, much less maneuver like a fighter jet.
