SEOUL -- "DAVE THE DIVER," a casual, single-player adventure role-playing game developed by South Korean game developer MINTROCKET, has achieved milestone sales of three million copies. This is the first time for a South Korean game developer to garner global attention with a single-player video game.

The adventure game, released in October 2022, depicts a story about Dave, a hard-working diver. Players can control Dave to catch fish, manage a restaurant, and farm vegetables and aquatic organisms gathered throughout the gameplay.

MINTROCKET is a subsidiary of Nexon, a major South Korean game publisher. South Korean game developers mainly focus on creating massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) which involve many players who cooperate to complete quests and collect items.

"3 million global sales of Dave the Diver! Thank you so much for the support and love!" MINTROCKET said on January 4. The game was released for PC through a game platform Steam and the console platform Nintendo Switch. DAVE THE DIVER was given the "Sit Back and Relax Award" by Steam at the end of 2023.
