you wake up in a flooded facility at the depths of the ocean. it is only a matter of time before the pressure of the miles upon miles of water above you cracks the fragile shell you are trapped inside. and there is something in there with you.
This is the nightmare Dr Adrien Blanc is living. She took her job as a researcher at Challenger Deep – a Theme Park with a fully-functioning and state-of-the-art research facility at the edge of the Marianas Trench – because she wanted to push the boundaries of science. Now they find themself fighting for their life. The power is running out. There is nobody but a malfunctioning AI to guide her. Neither Adrien nor the AI have any idea where the Breach to the facility happened, or what caused it. What they do know is that there is something else inside Challenger Deep. Something that should not be there. The next nearest point of escape is across the Theme Park, through a complicated system of doorlocks and safety mechanisms designed to protect life in the event of system failure. The only problem? The designers did not account for the problem coming from inside.
We need your help to make this show happen.
Challenger Deep is our most ambitious project yet and we want to make sure we can compensate everyone properly and fairly for the amazing work they do for our podcast. The best way you can support us is via Patreon. Small, regular donations can support not just Challenger Deep but our other shows, including the incredible Spirit Box Radio.
It will cost us approximately £1000 to compensate voice actors for Challenger Deep: Descent.
Another £1000 will allow us to upgrade our audio equipment, and any more will go towards keeping the lights on in the studio.
