Markiplier makes his directorial debut

Markiplier previously released a teaser trailer for the film, which you can see above. The teaser highlights the film’s claustrophobic setting, which, like the game, appears to be set in a dark submarine. In the video game, players are threatened by changes in oxygen and pressure levels and attempt to navigate the waters using only the submarine’s camera and a chart. It’s a game Markiplier has even played on his YouTube channel, and he thanks fans in his new video for how well they’ve taken to the recent teaser.

“I can tell you that even in my wildest imagination of what it would be like when I wrote it, it’s so much more,” he said.
