Hi folks,

Some of you may have heard already, but here is the official announcement:

A diving game will be released soon for the iPad and later, possible for the iPhone4. It is designed by myself for you, fellow divers. In the game you are a divemaster who must guide underwater photographers to take pictures about underwater animals. Show them as many species as possible, and don't let them die :-)

As a sneak preview, please find hereby a screenshot, I hope you like it!

If you wich, please like our starting Facebook fan-page as well, where I will release more and more info, as we go closer to the launch date.
Divemaster fan-page

and follow me on Twitter:
DivemasterGame at Twitter

Best,
Jules

Thanks, Simon! Yes, finally we are close to release it... Somehow did not imagine (before) that game development is just as tedious work as video editing :)

The name is Divemaster: The Caribbean and the price is not decided yet, we are investigating the best pricing method. iPhone4 version comes after the iPad version, so it means that an update will make the game universal HD.

Right now it runs at 50 fps at the iPad (1) and at 60 fps at the iPhone4. The first, open water diver level is more than 8000 pixel wide :-)

Hi,

Not yet... We are working hard to submit it to Apple as soon as possible.

In the meantime, you can sign up for our newsletter at http://divemastergame.com, so you wil be immediately notified when the game hits the App Store!

Best,
Jules

That's pretty cool, well done.

You may need to port it for the Andriods.
More Android smart phones are being sold now and the number is only going to get larger.
The smart pads too will quickly over take the ipads over the next year or two.

Thanks Wagsy!

Yeah, well, why not? It depends on the revenues... Programming services are expensive...

Yes I bet it is.
It looks really great :-)

Another thing you can do is re code it in FLASH, then it can be played on any Android based OS and computers too.
You could use all the same graphics and stuff, just need a good coder.

Wagsy, not sure if you saw this from the other day

Adobe on Wednesday said it will no longer push its Flash software format for use in the browser programs that come with smartphones and tablet computers. Instead, Adobe will increase its support for HTML5, a collection of technologies backed by Apple and others such as Google Inc. and Microsoft Corp.
