‘DAVE THE DIVER’ gameplay is largely divided into two types, ‘Blue Hole exploration’ and ‘Sushi restaurant operation.’
During the daytime, players can explore the Blue Hole twice, and each night after sunset players raise money by using ingredients from fish captured during the day, to operate the sushi restaurant. Players can use the funds raised at the sushi restaurant to upgrade equipment, then explore even deeper areas. Fish and ingredients caught in deeper areas can be sold at the sushi restaurant at an even higher price.
In this multi-genre game, ‘DAVE THE DIVER’ provides a sense of full and varied gameplay, and the items players have acquired disappear when players die during exploration, so it also provides a similar type of enjoyment to what rogue-like games provide
Former arms dealer Cobra, discovers that every time he enters the Blue Hole the ecology and terrain change. He sees a money making opportunity.
Cobra convinces the ever-optimistic Dave (the playable protagonist) and Bancho, a sushi chef who specializes in cooking rare sea creatures, to open a sushi restaurant near this Blue Hole. While investigating the interior of the Blue Hole at the request of archeologist Bacon, Dave discovers that the descendants of ancient Sea People, who still live in the deep sea, are under threat.
Realizing that this will be catastrophic to not only the hidden village of the Sea People, but also to the Earth itself, Dave dives deeper to search for a solution to the problem.
