The game looks great. A couple quick thoughts after dieing twice.
I feel like mouse based movement would be a lot more fluid through the game.
Struggled to get air. Feels like it should be a lot easier toward the top. Perhaps if bubbles came out faster.
I also had problems getting air. I sat there waiting above a pot from 50% air and ended up dead because I couldn't figure out how to align myself with the air bubbles.
Consider maybe not destroying the bubble unless the player gobbles it and maybe consider showing how much air was collected via a floating +43 or something. That will help the player know if they are getting air or not.
With a mouse, some early tutorial type stuff (how to use bubbles), and a little more activity (eels, fish, and etc), I can see this actually doing pretty well. With a dedicated server where the generation only needs to happen once and players can join at anytime and do deep dives via co-op, even better.
