Hello everyone, I imagine many have been wondering about the story of deepworld. I have come up with my own theory which tries to stray away from fiction and more to reality, examining various objects in the game and factors that some may not have taken into account.
First off we’ll start as to when the game is taking place. We already know it’s in Victorian times somewhere like the beggining of the 20th century. Over the course of my playtime I have noticed a writing on a sack depicting a year:
Now as to how we ended up in this apocalypse scenario. Obviously the brains invaded, but how did we get so soundly defeated? Well my theory is that an organization poisoned food and deprived humanity of any sort of necessities making it extremely hard to survive. This would explain why we cannot drink wine or tea, or eat canned food. Our characters can only eat jerky and fillets and jarred water from caves or lakes.
I would find a symbol found on a wine bottle as supportive of this theory.
I find the “hat” graffiti and the hat on the wine bottle consistent as to links to a secret organization.
Now about the technology we have at the moment. It’s clearly reverse engineered from our brain oppressors as they’re the only other NPCs that use things like Energy Cannons and Jets. However automatons use more conventional weapons such as frost and flame throwers as well as bullets, which may lead to the conclusion that they may be human manufactured although I haven’t formed a theory on the automatons just yet.
I hope you find this interesting and share any other interesting details or your own theories on the game. Have a nice day!
