New ‘Dave the Diver’ Video Game Available For Early Access on STEAM


A new diving video game is now available for early access.

“Dave the Diver” is a hybrid marine adventure set in a mysterious “Blue Hole” where the ecology and terrain continue to change, according to Seoul, South Korea-based developer MINTROCKET:

“Combining adventure and tycoon gameplay, ‘DAVE THE DIVER’ provides a variety of fun experiences. ‘Deep-sea exploration’ in a beautiful sea setting, combines a mix of 2D and 3D, and ‘Restaurant management’ in which you finance the shop by capturing fish and cooking them.”

Featuring up to 10 hours of ocean exploring and sushi-slinging gameplay, the early access version lets the player get a taste of the secrets of the Blue Hole in the first three chapters of this upcoming title.

The main story of the game is as follows, according to MINTROCKET:

“Former arms dealer Cobra discovers that every time he enters the Blue Hole the ecology and terrain change. He sees a money-making opportunity.

“Cobra convinces the ever-optimistic Dave (the playable protagonist) and Bancho, a sushi chef who specializes in cooking rare sea creatures, to open a sushi restaurant near this Blue Hole. While investigating the interior of the Blue Hole at the request of archeologist Bacon, Dave discovers that the descendants of ancient Sea People, who still live in the deep sea, are under threat.

“Realizing that this will be catastrophic to not only the hidden village of the Sea People, but also to the Earth itself, Dave dives deeper to search for a solution to the problem.”
