The first video game about Ocean world was released in 1983.

Sega has published all these games

May also be applied to cases where the surface world is devastated and uninhabitable, regardless of size, in the game mythos.

So the games are set either under the waves or the surface of the vast ocean, but with little or no habitable land to speak of in majority of cases.
