What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“World of Diving is first launched on Steam as an Early Access game, and we're sometimes asked for our reasons. It's simple: We are not making this game for just us (although it sometimes feels that way!) but for you, our community. By involving you in the development process from early on, we hope to bring you the game that you won't be able to put down. Also: bugs. ;)”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“At the moment, we're not quite sure as to how long we will keep World of Diving in Early Access. A lot depends on your feedback and the wishes of the community. There is no official release date yet.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Upon launch, the full game will have more features, more content, hopefully a boasting community full of happy players to meet in-game, and lots and lots of awesome user-generated content... and - bare with us ;) - less bugs than the Early Access version. Some concrete examples are the ability to invite your friends in multiplayer, salvaging, improved player progression, and animal companions.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current state of the Early Access version is pre-alpha. As mentioned above, we're still implementing some cool features for you guys and even better - you can help decide which features are introduced first through community polls.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, for sure. We're more than happy to reward you if you're willing to accept our bugs! You'll save some money, as the full game at launch will be a little more expensive. Details to follow soon.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“You'll have a vote on our upcoming feature development through community polls and by participating in our lively, resourceful forums.

To see our current production schedule in real time here.”

Plan for Leaving Early Access



We hope you have enjoyed the improvements to the game in the updates over the summer. It’s been fun for the team to move the game closer to release and to receive the positive feedback from the community. We are planning to make another major leap forward. In fact, we are planning to leave early access in Q1 of 2017.

In our review of the outstanding tasks on Trello and additional features that we want to add to the game, we have decided the best approach would be to put our heads down and work on a single large update. This will allow us to build out new features and take more time to polish the game. 

This update will include these new features or key improvements (in addition to the other Trello tasks):
- Two new levels (Flying Dutchman & Community levels)
- Re-launch of the mission editor
- New capture & tag missions and storyline
- New map area missions and storyline
- New collection missions
- New location based missions
- New cosmetic peripherals
- Adding passive tools
- Adding flora & dive sites to the Oceanopedia
- Art improvements
- Improved daily mission spawns
- Re-launch of the equipment shop



This development approach does not mean we will not be publishing updates to the game until this major update. We will continue to publish bug fixes similar to the fix of the Sharks mission two weeks ago. The next update is scheduled for next week. These continued fixes are required to improve the game’s stability and improve your experience with the game in early access. It is also a critical step in finishing the game.
 
We are still likely to be addressing a number of bug fixes in the next major update, so we want to make sure that we have identified all the bugs we can. You have been a tremendous help to us in this regard. We only ask that you keep it up. We will be adding these reports to Trello as you submit them.
 
Again, thank you for being part of the World of Diving community and participating in the early access program. We could not make this game without you.

WoD UPDATE v0.17.10

A new update is out for World of Diving. In this update, we've added some new fish, improved the 'big fish' animations, added an update notification to the tablet and did some more bug fixing. We've also added sounds when surfacing and submerging. These were long overdue and add some extra immersion.

Please note the divegame.net profile settings have been moved to the settings menu. We've replaced the divegame.net profile button in the main menu with a button which directs you to the EUCL3D 3D printing service to print out your avatar.

The complete list of changes:
- The following sea life was added to the game: Lionfish, Orca, Red Rockfish, Rockfish, Sperm whale, Great white shark, Tiger shark
- Big fish trailing animation is now smoother
- An icon is now displayed in the tablet when it is updated (ex. when a story mission is completed or an Oceanopedia entry is updated)
- A sound effect is now played when surfacing and submerging
- The little hercules buddy's propeller now rotates when swimming
- Moved the divegame.net profile settings to the main menu settings menu
- Added a button to the main menu which directs you to the EUCL3D 3D printing service
- Fixed a bug where buddies were not removed when players disconnect
- Fixed a bug where dolphins would sometimes swim upside down
- Fixed a bug where the mask overlay effect was visible in the edges of the screen in VR
