Dave the Diver has convinced more than 3 million players

Small indie games like Dave the Diver don't need insane amounts of money, spectacular graphics, and overly complicated mechanics to become big hits. A cozy and personal experience that combines fishing and questing with restaurant management mechanics is enough to deliver a unique experience capable of captivating a huge fan base. It's not a matter of hype or being trendy. In the case of Dave the Diver, it's all about delivering an experience that players can enjoy, and developer Mintrocket has achieved such a goal on its first try and with honours. The game has caught the eye of an increasing number of players since it was released and it's one of the biggest indie hits of 2023.

Simple mechanics for an engaging experience

Dave the Diver puts you in the shoes of a guy who dives to catch fish during the day and runs a sushi restaurant at night. Such a simple premise has enough room for adventure and exploration in an engaging experience that has only needed six months to sell over 3 million copies. Mitrocket has announced the achievement in a publication via X where the studio also thanks all the players for their support.



Not too long ago the studio also released a collaboration with another fishing game that became a hit last year, Dredge. The approach of both games to such an activity is completely different, but the eerie atmosphere and supernatural horror touch of Dredge have become a perfect addition to expand Dave the Diver with new gameplay features while maintaining its unique style.

Anything that Mintrocket may be preparing for Dave the Diver in the future will surely have a warm welcome from a huge community of fans.
