Soma is a science fiction survival horror game played from a first-person perspective. Thomas Grip of Frictional Games stated that the player will "encounter a number of strange creatures, each an embodiment of an aspect of our themes."

Soma has been in the making since 2010. It was revealed in April 2014 that setting the game in the bottom of the ocean was an idea which was decided on a "whim" by Frictional Games co-founders Thomas Grip and Jens Nilsson, and Grip further said that they wanted to try this for a long time. On January 6, the developer stated that the game's development is mostly done, and that they're only polishing the game in works now.
