‘Dave The Diver’ Video Game To Launch This June


The full version of the diving video game “Dave the Diver” is due out on PC this coming June, South Korea-based developer MINTROCKET announced this week.

Initially released in “Early Access” last October, the game has earned a collective “Overwhelmingly Positive” score from the Steam community with over 8,300 reviews submitted.

“Dave the Diver” is a hybrid marine adventure where players dive into the mysterious, fictional “Blue Hole” to catch fish by day and serve fresh sushi to patrons in a seaside restaurant by night. Players traverse the vibrant, and sometimes dangerous, ocean in order to catch the fish needed to supply the restaurant. When they surface, they can serve patrons from near and far so they can earn money to improve their diving gear, allowing them to dive deeper and for extended periods to capture more exotic fish while fending off any threats they encounter.

The announcement of the game’s full release was part of the Future Games Show Spring Showcase.

When the game launches on PC this summer, it will feature the remaining chapters (4-7), additional maps with more areas to explore and new bosses to take on as the mysteries of the “Blue Hole” unravel, according to MINTROCKET.

“Dave the Diver” will be available in English, German, Japanese, Korean, Simplified and Traditional Chinese as well as Spanish and more languages to be added at launch. The game will also have full controller support for those who like the classic gamepad experience and Mac iOS support as well.

The game will retail for US$19.99 (~€18.45). To play the early access version, go to the Steam Store.
