Top Games Similar to Subnautica


Subnautica is an underwater first-person survival game developed by Unknown Worlds Entertainment. The game provides you 4 different modes: Survival, Freedom, Hardcore & Creative. You can start playing by selecting anyone of the mode.

  • Freedom – It’s same like Survival but here no need to worry about hunger/thirst.
