For immediate release

Cascade Game Foundry Partners with the PADI organization, DEMA, Mission Blue, SCUBAPRO, Body Glove, Oceanic, BARE and more to launch new Windows PC and Mac game.

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON – 13 March 2013 – Cascade Game Foundry (CGF®) launches Infinite Scuba™, the first product in their portfolio of next-generation simulation games. Infinite Scuba helps players of all ages experience the beauty, mystery and serenity of scuba diving in breathtakingly recreated dive sites from around the world.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with world authorities on scuba diving and environmentalism to create Infinite Scuba,” says Kathie Flood, Managing Director at CGF and a 17-year veteran of the video game industry. Partners include PADI® (Professional Association of Diving Instructors), DEMA (The Diving Equipment and Marketing Association), Mission Blue (the Sylvia Earle Alliance) and 20 scuba equipment manufacturers, including SCUBAPRO, Body Glove, Oceanic and BARE. “Our partners,” says Flood, “helped us create an incredibly immersive experience, one that delivers the real adventure of scuba diving to our players.”

“As a featured gear manufacturer, we are very excited for the release of Infinite Scuba. It is very thorough and well thought-through, with excellent attention to details that will make a noticeable difference for real-life divers who play the game,” says Kate Booth, Marketing Manager for the Americas - Johnson Outdoors Diving LLC, which includes the SCUBAPRO® and SUBGEAR® brands.

In the initial release of the downloadable game, players explore a shipwreck in Chuuk Lagoon, the site of a pivotal World War II battle that is now a renowned South Pacific dive destination. In the years since that battle, the Chuuk shipwrecks have transformed into thriving reefs. Players search for fish and coral, as well as artifacts from the war, each of which unlocks a page of local history or dive science. Players exploring the wrecks can take photos to share with friends and earn dive certifications which unlock additional content.

Players can also purchase and download new equipment, challenges, and dive sites from inside the game.

“Scuba diving is an exciting, life-changing activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages,” says Kristin Valette, PADI Americas’

Vice President of Marketing and Communications. “The PADI organization’s goal is to help people learn to dive and appreciate the wonder of the underwater world. Through our partnership with Cascade Game Foundry, PADI and Infinite Scuba will introduce an even broader audience to the excitement of diving and encourage them to dive into the real thing.”

"DEMA is extremely excited to be part of the launch of Infinite Scuba," commented Tom Ingram, Executive Director of DEMA. "The game is a positive fit with DEMA's mission of promoting sustainable growth in recreational diving and activities such as DiveCaching. Having the diver search for DiveCaches while diving in Infinite Scuba will showcase the adventure and excitement of discovering 'real treasure'


Cascade Game Foundry is hard at work creating additional dive sites and adventures for Infinite Scuba to be released in the second quarter 2013. The game is available now for Windows PC and MacOS. To download and play Infinite Scuba visit
