* SceneryPorn: The whole game is filled with large, gorgeous environments, from the shallows the player starts to a tropical island, along with coral reefs, kelp forests, a mushroom forest, underwater mountains, dark caverns, a deep lava area... With all the alien fauna and flora providing for unique-looking places, the player will be here for a treat scenery-wise.

Added DiffLines:

** Spadefish are non-aggressive and harmless to the player, but crashing into them damages your Seamoth, forcing you to repair it every so often during long voyages.

Added DiffLines:

** In the [=PS4=] console release, prolonged play could cause the map to load incorrectly or not load at all (in this troper's experience, it's at some point exceeding 2 hours). This could allow access to cave and tunnel resources while also removing above-ground barriers for crashfish to aggro you. Since this glitch allows you to go under the terrain, it's possible to exploit it to make travelling to places easier.


* AscendedFanboy: Let's Play channel WebVideo/NeebsGaming made a series of videos essentially roleplaying through the game during development. They were contacted by the developers and ended up providing some voice acting for the finished game as part of Alterra HQ.

* InternetBackdraft: In February 2018, Unknown Worlds Entertainment elected to fire Simon Chylinski, their sound developer, due to statements which were hateful in nature. Due to the political nature of the incident, the resulting FlameWar was... not pretty, speaking lightly. [[Administrivia/RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment And that's all we'll say.]]

Added DiffLines:

*** The former fate of Lifepod Crew 6, which was changed upon the launch of the game. A paranoid and distressed Aurora passenger takes the sole radiation suit from an Alterra crew member, but the passenger fails to do up the zipper and dies slowly of radiation; her crew member partner is left (correctly) guessing she won't make it much longer either -- in other words, two people (likely) die a slow and agonizing death depending on how [[spoiler:the Warpers treated the crew member]]. In earlier versions of the game, this gave a free radiation suit, but later versions deemed this was too much of a boon -- the crew member now mentions that there's lead around the area for the player to craft a suit themselves, and instead the pair die quickly from an accidental flare explosion from the passenger; the player can find a couple of leftover flares.


*** While she was distrustful and arrogant, [[spoiler:the woman who accidentally irradiates herself to death goes out with a whimper and her partner fears (correctly) that he won't last much longer.]]



** The tale of the ''Degasi'' survivors. [[spoiler:Paul Torgal, his son Bart Torgal, and their mercenary Marguerit Maida. The three are the only survivors of the Degasi, and manage to not only find one of the only above sea-level land masses on the entire planet, but with Bart's educational implants, manage to create a stable resource of food and water for them to survive on. Then the planet's violent monsoon season starts and destroys their food supplies and threatens their lives, forcing them to take refuge deep underwater in spite of the dangers. To make matters worse, Bart then discovers they are infected with the planet's virus that is slowly killing them. Marguerit attempts to assist Bart in finding a cure, but her heavy-handed ways to finding aquatic specimens cause them to become unfit for experimentation, leading to the point where she brings a stunned ''Reaper Leviathan'' back to Bart, only for it to (unsurprisingly) come to and destroy their base, killing Marguerit and Paul and leaving Bart as the sole survivor. From the trailer, it's revealed Bart created a second base in the shallows and spent an unknown amount of time in isolation, wracked with guilt over his hand in the deaths of his father and friend. He eventually abandons his own safe base to venture back to the island base as he knows he's close to dying from the virus, and makes one last sad voice log talking about how he'll soon be joining his lost companions in the ocean's ecosystem once he finally passes.]]

* EndingAversion: Some players just don't want to finish the game, either from simply [[IChooseToStay falling in love with the planet itself]] or from finding the and/or learning more and more about [[CrapsackWorld the place you'd be returning to]] and not finding it very appealing. The utter lack of background for the player character doesn't help; he really has no apparent motivation to leave the planet other than his PDA telling him to.
