today unveiled World of Diving
, an online multiplayer dive game for PC, Mac and Linux that supports (but does not require) the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. A crowdfunding campaign is underway on Indiegogo here
. Over the coming month, Vertigo Games will be raising a total funding amount of $75,000 for the development of World of Diving.
Contributions of any size are welcome but you can have the full funder experience from pledges of $20 and up, which include access to the early beta, backer-exclusive forums, and the community development platform on top of a DRM-free digital copy of the game for all platforms when it launches early 2014. Stretch goals for other platforms have been mentioned, and will be revealed as the campaign progresses.
Starting out in the Caribbean, World of Diving aims to recreate and bring to life the world of wonder and discovery that is at the bottom of the ocean, where you will be hang out with friends - whether you have met them in or outside of the game - and can dive with the sea turtles, hunt for the great white shark, and party on your own luxury yachts.
