A downloadable game
For the first time, a group of underwater people are getting together to meet, share their lives, and commiserate about life out of water.
Secret gill-men, naiads, barnacle lords, fish-women, and the people who love them all meet in their reluctantly adopted hometown far from the sea, all glad for some understanding and companionship in a dry, difficult world full of secrets and hardship. Maybe if things go well this can be a monthly thing.
You play people who really ought to live underwater but are, instead, selling real estate and wireless plans in suburban Atlanta. So you are a princess of Atlantis, or a swamp monster, or a siren, literally a fish out of water in the dry world, and the people you meet at a Day's Inn conference room once a month are solace and reminder.
