Windows 8.1 App Watch: Infinite Scuba

Care for some scuba fun? Virtual, of course. This interesting new game recently made available for users of Windows 8.1 aims to provide that underwater adventuring feeling.

Infinite Scuba is, for all essential purposes, the first scuba diving simulator for the platform. Listed as free on the Windows Store, this is actually a limited trial of the game, and you are required to purchase the game to access all content.

The official description:

“Want to explore the ocean like a real scuba diver? Infinite Scuba® enables you to experience the beauty, mystery, and serenity of scuba diving and artifact discovery in exotic real-world locations. Search a real Japanese ship sunk in Micronesia during World War 2, identify sea life, and take photos to share with friends, while learning about history, marine biology, and dive science.”

Like most good journeys, you begin on a ship, where you can equip your diver — provided you have all the unlocked equipment. Once that is done, you can start to explore your chosen underwater area.

The trial limits things to a sunk Japanese warship, where you can identify sea life and take photos.

Download size for the base game comes in at just 27.9MB, but unexcitingly, supports is only limited to the x86 and x64 versions of Windows. Touch is limited too, as this game is designed to work best with keyboard and mouse. But it is a fun trip, nevertheless, and well worth a dive.

    I’m not a big app guy, but I am such a deep sea fan and love the realism this provides. BY FAR, my favorite app watch you guys have done. I’m checking out this free trial after work tomorrow. Stunning.
