Song of the Deep Discusses a Father's Inspiration - His Daughter

By Kevin Tavore, 4 months ago
Insomniac's Song of the Deep is coming later in July. We know it's set underwater and stars Fiona as she journeys through the ocean, exploring and attempting to find her father who once traveled down this path before her. She travels by swimming at times, but mainly by piloting her trusty submarine through the sometimes treacherous waters.

Today's trailer dives deeper into the story behind these characters and what inspired them. Brian Hastings has a daughter named Fiona, it turns out. As you can imagine based on the names, she served as strong inspiration for who and what Hastings wanted the main character to be. Some of Fiona's attributes represent what he already sees in his daughter, such as her dedication to family. Other attributes are those he hopes any daughter would one day have.

Hastings is happy to be able to create a new world - it's one of the things he most enjoys about being a developer. As for Fiona, she's just happy to have a dad who's cool enough to work in the video game industry.

Song of the Deep sets sail on July 12th for Xbox One.
