Rotterdam, The Netherlands – March 26, 2014 –
Dutch independent studio Vertigo Games today launched the first playable, named “Stage 0”, of the online multiplayer VR-enabled underwater experience World of Diving
Stage 0, which is playable with both the Oculus Rift and a traditional monitor, lets players dive in with up to 4 friends, to give their customized character a spin in their own personal diving base, and to get a first taste of what the upcoming underwater experience will entail.
“Launching an early, scalable build in this fashion allows a small studio such as ours to stagger the release in manageable chunks, while at the same time giving our ever-growing community the chance to get involved in a transparent and open development process from very early on,” says Richard Stitselaar, Creative Director at Vertigo Games.
Vertigo Games emphasizes that Stage 0 is not meant to be representative of what World of Diving
will offer players in its final stages – neither in scope nor feature completeness. “Stage 0 serves to give players an impression of they can expect from World of Diving
in the future – and a way for us to start an open, informed dialogue with our enthusiastic, resourceful community,” Stitselaar adds.
Stage 0 is now available for PC to anyone who has pre-purchased World of Diving
via its official website: http://www.divegame.net
. Mac and Linux support is expected within the next weeks.
