What is DREDGE?

DREDGE is a single-player experience that offers a fishing adventure with an eerie twist.

The key features you can expect are:

  • Captain your fishing trawler across remote islands with unique inhabitants, wildlife and stories
  • Explore the sea to discover hidden treasures and complete quests for new abilities
  • Upgrade your boat’s capabilities and research special equipment to access rare fish and valuable curiosities
  • Sell your findings to locals to learn more about each area and reach secluded locations
  • Strengthen your mind and abilities to survive trips out on the water after dark.
