Dave The Diver Dev: Plans for New Content and Interest in Possible Crossovers
Dave The Diver, a unique casual adventure game, has garnered overwhelming positive reviews from fans, with over 43,000 reviews on Steam. The game, created by South Korea-based studio MINTROCKET, combines exploration, management, and humor into a single-player adventure RPG. Players control Dave, a lazy yet helpful character, who dives into the depths of the “Blue Hole” during the day to capture different types of fish. At night, Dave uses the captured fish to help prepare dishes for the local sushi restaurant, Bancho Sushi. The game’s premise is highly praised by fans, and its success has exceeded the expectations of its director, Jaeho Hwang.
MINTROCKET is dedicated to improving Dave The Diver based on user feedback and has already released several updates since its launch. The studio is currently focused on Quality of Life improvements and bug fixes. However, fans are eager to know if there will be any new content added to the game. Hwang has expressed the studio’s plans to include new content in the future, and there are also discussions about potential collaborations or crossovers with other games. Hwang believes it would be “really cool” to see Dave appear in other games.
In addition to these updates, Dave The Diver will be making its way to the Nintendo Switch later this year. As the Switch is considered beneficial for smaller-scale indie games like Dave the Diver, its release on this platform could significantly increase its outreach. However, Hwang mentioned that there are currently no specific dates or plans for the Switch release. The studio is currently working on optimizing the game for the Switch, as some areas of performance suffered from lag. They are also considering enhancing the user interface and incorporating features like vibration feedback for better compatibility with gamepads.
While Nintendo Switch users eagerly await the availability of Dave The Diver on their platform, PC players can continue to enjoy the game and anticipate new content and potential collaborations or crossovers. With the continuous rise of crossovers and collaborations in the gaming industry, it will be interesting to see how Dave could fit into other games or how other games could be represented in the indie title.
Dave The Diver is currently available on PC.
