Default Divemaster

Dear Community,

I am pleased to announce the imminent availability of our largest *original and indie* project so far, Divemaster - the ultimate scuba diving fun for your iPad

You can download the game for the iPad 2,3,4, Mini, retina Mini, and Air from the Apple iTunes store.

In the game you are a divemaster who's responsibility to find and show underwater animals to those divers who wants to take a photo about them. Can you guide 8 divers at the same time?

Paid version (no ads) and free version (with ads) are also available. Please buy or download for free our game and give high ratings and nice reviews if you enjoy the game, we made it for you!

Paid:



Free:

I thank to Adam, my programmer partner who made it possible by his hard and dedicated work through more than a year.

The game was developed by Unity 3.5.7 Pro, iOS pro, NGUI 1x then 2x series, 2D toolkit (+ sprite light system, courtesy of 2D toolkit developer), Prime31 video texture plugin + social plugins, Vectrosity line drawing system, Kalamona's underwater effects (and extra particle systems created for the game). In conclusion, the game would not be possible to finish without Unity and the Unity Asset Store framework. I received great help from these devs when I approached them with my questions, big KUDO's.

If you like the game. please share it with your friends.

Many thanks,
Gyula

Thanks, hopefully it fulfills your wish, at least a certain way. Behind the casual look there is real diving physics: Surface Consumption Rate (SAC) is varied by depth, divers' activity, being idle, swimming or be in panic. All the certification cards, tanks, lights etc are modeled by real diving -- your truly is also a divemaster and underwater filmmaker, so I know by heart how it feels :-)

Any plans to release this for the iPhone? I've been looking for something like this for a long time?

I'm sorry, but even the iPhone 5's screen is too small to accommodate all the icons and sprites. Some of the fishes are just above 40 pixel at the iPad version, imagine those at a much smaller screen. We tried it and it was not good enough.

Well, I just consulted with my programmer about this suggestion. Since we are preparing the Amazon edition, we will give a try to build it for the iPhone 4s and 5/5s. There is not so much extra work after the Amazon port... We will see :-) He told me that people who are accustomed to the smaller screen won't complain...

This game is so good.
It's relaxing, yet it does get challenging later on.

I will give deeper impressions later, but if you have any interest then at least try the free version.
A lot of love has went into this experience.
