You’d think that with all the work required to prep for a World Record-breaking freedive — physical training, interacting with sponsors and media, etc — that that would be enough for just about anybody, right? Not for William Trubridge.

The World Champion freediver this month introduced a freediving game — “William Trubridge’s Plunge Free-dive” — that you can play on your smartphone or tablet. As William says on his Facebook page:

“I’m excited to announce the launch of the first-ever freediving game app. Created by Mark Major and the team at Broken Back Games, it’s a fun and addictive app where you have to make sure you turn around with enough oxygen to return to the surface, while avoiding the hazardous fish and rescuing Maui’s Dolphins along the way.”

While a lot of game developers would be looking to make huge profits off their product, that just isn’t William. All the profits from the game will go toward the Maui’s Dolphin Fund, which works to save this dwindling species.

The game is available for Apple iOS and Android devices.
