Details about the movie are scarce, but a teaser trailer has been released on Markiplier’s YouTube channel that can be seen below:
Iron Lung is a horror game set in a claustrophobic one-man submarine nicknamed the “Iron Lung.” The set in a universe where every known star and habitable planet vanished decades ago, leaving behind an empty universe of asteroids and lifeless moons. The survivors have spent years searching for any remaining natural resources, and a mysterious anomaly known as a Blood Ocean was discovered on an otherwise barren moon.
The game Iron Lung was released in 2022 and was popular among the YouTube crowd. It takes place inside a submarine, where the player explores the depths of an ocean in search of resources. The game was praised for its bleak and oppressive atmosphere.
