At one time or another, you’ve probably looked at the Oculus Rift and thought to yourself, “I bet those would make some bangin’ underwater goggles.”  That may not be the exact sentiment expressed by the developers at Vertigo Games, but in our GDC 2014 preview, I was told that the form factor of the new piece of tech did in fact provide the initial inspiration for World of Diving.

    This with Oculus would be amazing!  I can't wait to do the real thing in the Philippines at the end of the year.

    I dislike FB very much so I hope not.. lol    I could just picture a fish swimming by with an advertisement painted on its side hehe  And then hypnotoad is waiting for me right when I step out of the water.

    Sounds like a game with almost nothing to do.

    I'm pretty sure most players will be bored in less than an hour, at least if they don't have the Oculus.

    I scuba dive regularly and it's a great hobbie with friends. VR scuba sounds a bit like watching paint dry.

     

    Plus Google are already doing Reef Cam on the Great Barrier Reef.

    And here I thought the Diving MMO was an aprils fools joke

    Or........here's an interesting idea...why not get off your fat asses and go do the real thing instead of pretending to scuba dive in make believe world.

     

    I swear....the amount of yawns this title produced is phenomenal.

    Not sure about an entire game centered around scuba diving.  Maybe.  I would prefer to see these features implemented in to a game and it become one aspect of the game, not the entire game.  There is another MMO around here called SNOW.  You spawn on a mountain and ski down. Exciting?  I am an avid skier but not sure I care to do this for hours in an MMO exclusively.
