Indie developer and publisher MintRocket has released a new trailer for Dave The Diver as the game is headed to Early Access in October. This is probably one of the cutest combination games we’ve seen in a while as you play a bartender and diver named Dave who heads down into the ocean to fish for different kinds of sea creatures to bring back to his friend, the sushi chef, on his barge by the bay where you help him serve customers at night. It’s part exploration, part puzzle solving, part restaurant management, and occasionally part survival game. All in lovely pixel art that really brings the game to life. While they didn’t put an exact date on it, we know the game will hit Early Access on Steam in October, but for now you can play a demo at the link above.
