It’s Out! Our little cave-diver game which is our very own IP published by Thumbstar Games.
We decided to make Cave Diver out of a fondness for Mega Drive games, such as “Ecco The Dolphin” and the water levels on Sonic games. (Not to mention the classic from Durell software “Scuba Dive” on the ZX spectrum).
All of us wanted it to be incredibly easy to play, whilst quite hard to master.
The game went through a few guises as we developed it, we originally had a much faster game play and a more comic approach both visually and in gameplay.
It just didn’t work for us with the subject matter, we wanted a different feel… a relaxing…. flowing old skool “scroller”, with very rich Audio that relaxes you as you play. Very immersive, or sub-mersive if you prefer!
With a collective 20 plus years experience in games, Jamie Hales our Senior Programmer and Adam Dickinson our Production Director, we feel well positioned to steer Mi successfully into the mobile market. Publishing duties are handled by the fantastic team over at Thumbstar Games. We are all hoping that cave-diver will be the first of many successful mobile launches under this exciting new partnership.
We already have a busy production line of other games in development. We see Cave diver as just the first in this series, it naturally lends itself to an endless runner, and we have that well under way.
