Hi everybody, new user here, I'm looking for this game I used to play in the early 90s:
-You set out on a research boat and can go to various points of interest in the ocean such as the Marianas Trench and various wreckage sites (I think you could even explore the Bermuda Triangle)

-You'd descend in a submersible (I remember getting freaked out because there was this eerie red glow that activates in the submersible I think when you reached a certain depth)

-As far as I can remember it was all VGA graphics.

-There was a "Rec Room" onboard the ship that had an arcade machine that let you play that old wire frame battlezone/battletank game (there may have been another game as well)

I've been trying to find this game for ages, it was a big box game, I can't remember if it was specifically DOS only or if I played it through Windows.

Any help is appreciated thanks!

-UPDATE- Found what I was looking for:

It's an interesting relic if anybody is interested and can get it running.

Cool! Thanks for letting us know. I haven't tried, but I assume DosBox would run it no problem if you've got a copy of the game.

edit: ah, looks like archive.org carries it:
