Dive: The Medes Islands Secret videogame

The Club de Turisme Nàutic Costa Brava is collaborating in the production of a videogame for the Nintendo Wii Platform with the aim of promoting the Costa Brava and diving through new technologies.

The Dive: The Medes Islands Secret videogame is a recreational product developed by Cosmonaut Games and sponsored by the Club de Turisme Nàutic Costa Brava on the basis of a proposal presented by the 46 TSM company to the Patronat with the goal of applying new technologies to the tourism promotion of the destination. The videogame for Nintendo’s Wii console will be distributed online through Nintendo’s WiiWare™ service from May in the USA and from June in Europe.

Dive: The Medes Islands Secret is a platform and action diving videogame inspired by the Medes Islands. Its hero, John Sanders, must complete different levels and obtain treasures. The game will have ten levels, three of which are set on the Costa Brava: two on the Medes Islands and one at Cap de Creus. The seven remaining levels are set in world famous locations such as the Galapagos Islands and the Seychelles, etc.

This game has a potential market of 30 million users around the world (except in Japan) and will have a dedicated website that will provide information on the Medes Islands and the Costa Brava, as well as on the companies that form part of the Club de Turisme Nàutic Costa Brava. The Patronat de Turisme has provided 4000 euros in sponsorship money, coinciding with the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Medes Islands as a Protected Area.
