Hi folks,

soon I will finish the gameplay video/trailer for the game. I thought I share a frame (work-in-progress). Do not try it with your real iPads, they are not water resistant! Footage was taken at the Red Sea, using GoPro Hero.

I visited your site and subscribed and checked out the screenshots on show - Which look very nice by the way :-)
Can you tell us a little about the gameplay we can expect?

Hi,

first of all, thank you very much for signing-up, and for the compliments, I'm happy if you like them

As for the gameplay:

The game centers on the real-life responsibilities of any divemasters: managing and leading a group, helping identify marine life, and much more.

You are the divemaster in our game, and here is what you do:

-- Connect the divers to those animals they wish to photograph. At least one photo is needed, otherwise you cannot send them up...

-- Each photo taken rewards the player with tips from the divers. Photos are collected in the album.

-- Using these tips the divers can be upgraded by means of training and new equipment. (If you need more money, you can buy via IAP)

Just like a real divemaster, the player must take good care of their divers: if they run out of air, they will die and the game will end. You can give them once a tank to top-up their air reserve.

In a way a very simple 2D line-drawing game, but under the nice graphics real diving physics is working (I'm a divemaster myself as well). So the whole diving business can be found here, trainings, tanks, lights etc. Even you can get bio/chemical/nuclear waste out of the water and get extra environmental bonus.

Imagine Flight Control with two major differences: collisions are not dangerous, and each plane has a fuel reserve, which represents the time until you have to find the (moving) target.

I hope it helps As soon as I finish the gameplay video, I will announce here first!
