The Ice Caves of Europa may set players in the uninhabited caverns of Jupiter's moons but the lack of life doesn't excuse players from tense and drama-filled gameplay. Designed as a hybrid of drone simulator and story-driven adventure, the Ice Caves of Europa tasks players with completing mining and exploratory adventures through the titular caves. Throughout these missions, a larger narrative will begin to form that plays of themes of humanity and identity.

Players navigating through the Ice Caves of Europa will be doing so in an AI-controlled Dragonfly named Verne. Navigation is the main challenge presented within the game and allows players to control flight, momentum and thrust. The burgeoning AI of Verne also plays heavily into the story, as a mysterious conspiracy unfolds around the player.
