Redmond, WA (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
Cascade Game Foundry (CGF), developer of Infinite Scuba®, is excited to announce they are the first independent game developer invited to join the PC Gaming Alliance.
The PC Gaming Alliance (PCGA) is a non-profit organization and dedicated team of companies working toward the goal of improving the PC gaming experience. Their mission is to deliver a superior gaming experience anytime, everywhere, on any screen, on your terms.
"We are honored and thrilled to be the first independent game developer invited to join the PC Gaming Alliance," says Kathie Flood, Managing Director and co-founder of Cascade Game Foundry. "This is a great opportunity for us to learn from the other members and to provide our perspective as an indie developer. We all want to create cool, unique experiences that connect with our audiences, wherever they are."
"Including independent developers in the PCGA is an important evolution, as our membership reflects the industry," said Matt Ployhar, President of the PC Gaming Alliance. "Cascade Game Foundry and the other indies we have invited will help us better understand the opportunities and challenges faced by small developers on the bleeding edge."
Infinite Scuba is a downloadable diving game that gives players ages 8 and up the beauty, mystery, and serenity of the Earth's oceans. Players do what real divers do - explore dive sites, identify wildlife, take photos, and find artifacts - while learning about history and dive science.
Cascade Game Foundry works closely with Dr. Sylvia Earle (National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence and founder of Mission Blue), the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI®), and over 20 dive equipment manufacturers, such as SCUBAPRO®, Oceanic, and Body Glove to insure the integrity of Infinite Scuba's diving experience and raise awareness of critical ocean and marine life issues.
Infinite Scuba was a finalist in Game Connection America's Selected Projects 2014 competition, a finalist in the 2013 Seattle Independent Game Competition, and the winner of the Best in DEMA Show 2012 award. Cascade Game Foundry is a 2013 Graduate of the Washington Interactive Network's REACTOR Accelerator.
