STP: The Drowning, a unique free-to-play shooter we’ve had our eye on for a while, has just been released in New Zealand and Australia. We’re not sure when it will land in the U.S., but we took the game for a spin. Read on to find out what to expect when this post-apocalyptic game hits an App Store near you.
At the start of The Drowning, a hands-off introduction finds your character on a small motor boat. Something is clearly amiss, because you’re audibly freaking out and plowing through the water at a dangerously high speed. After a few near-misses with rocks and abandoned boats, two animated corpses pull themselves onto your vessel, and you crash on the shore.
