Dive in the Past by game development team 3D Research Srl based in Italy, has won the Fan Favorite voting round 18 at the Game Development World Championship 2021 (GDWC). The game is available on Google Play and Apple App Store.

Dive in the Past takes the player on a journey inside the underwater world, where modern and ancient wrecks and submerged cities lie. A magic diary hides a mystery to be discovered, and the Mediterranean Sea wrecks and ruins of ancient populations to explore. Hi-tech tools show how ships and cities looked in the past. Dive in the Past mixes the exploration with puzzles and quests.

A multidisciplinary team aims to apply its expertise in the gaming sector, by delivering outstanding videogames with innovative gameplay and storytelling solutions.
