The ocean is a massive place. So massive in fact, that over 80 percent of our ocean is unmapped, unobserved and completely unexplored. There is much to learn from the mysteries of the deep, including things from the past that we might have no records of in the books. “Dive In The Past” attempts to recreate that mystery but in a smaller body of water, the Mediterranean Sea.

“Dive In The Past” makes you a deep sea diver, exploring the Mediterranean Sea and discovering all its lost and ancient mysteries. The game is an adventure quest in which you explore and discover mysteries – mysteries like the remains of ancient civilizations and the shipwrecks of the past.

The game begins with you receiving a mysterious diary that points you in the direction of different shipwrecks and remains. You discover these sites with different high-tech tools like scanners that map the floor of the water and help you discern remains from mud and seaweed. Once you discover these sites, you get to explore them as they tell you their stories and secrets from the past. To discover these secrets and study artifacts, you must solve puzzles.

The game is a very chill experience as you are mainly exploring against a calm musical backdrop. The graphics are pretty great for a mobile game; it really gives you a bit of an appreciation for what real marine archaeologists and oceanographers do in their quest for discovering the past and present in the deep blue sea.

“Dive In The Past” is free to download on the Android and IOS stores.
