The goal is to find the sub-ocean, which was the theme of the game jam.

Thanks to @DialMforMara for working with me and making sure we actually participated.

Just as I was rushing to get the submission in my music shuffled to "Marathon" by Rush.

Can't tell if it's being funny, ironic, or sincere.
