Dave the Diver has released on PC to widespread critical acclaim, with many outlets earmarking the title for a Game of the Year nod when 2023 closes. Switch owners will have a chance to see what all the fuss is about later this year, but today brings us information on one of the game’s many inspirations, as well as insight into future content.

In an interview with GamesIndustry, director Jaeho Hwang spoke about a number of things that not only led to the creation of Dave the Diver, but directly inspired it.

“I got the idea from a Japanese-style pub on the Jeju Island seaside that only opens at night. The owner of the pub dives in the morning to catch fish and serves them to customers at night. I also read a manga called ‘Blue Hole’, with a story about a blue hole connected to an ancient world. I thought it was a really cool concept and wanted to create a game about this mysterious giant hole in the sea.”
