World Of Diving claims to be “the first online multiplayer diving game”. I say “claims to be” because I am sure I played an online multiplayer diving game before, but Google can’t conjure it for me, and therefore it does not exist. Anyway, I’ve always felt that deliberately going underwater with sharks was one of those things that was best left to Not Real Life, and so videogames seem like the perfect opportunity to do such insane things without getting gnawed on, or having to breathe salt water or anything. That, at least, gives this game a good reason to exist. But is it $75,000 worth of a reason? I cannot say. Not even with an Oculus Rift strapped to a man’s face.
The top reward tier is “Get the great white shark buddy and freak out other divers!” It sadly does not then say “And In The Game”.
