No VR headset required! All you need to play is your PC.

History

In March 2020 sailors around the world found themselves quarantined at home. In response to this emerging situation the MarineVerse team decided to create something that will be accessible to as many people as possible.

Features

  • Your own small interactive sailboat. Steer and control the sails with simple keyboard controls.
  • An idyllic Caribbean location to explore. Look around using your mouse or change camera position for a better view.
  • Immersive audio with sailing and ocean sounds.
  • Simple, but realistic sailing mechanics. To sail upwind, you need to zig-zag and tack, like in real life.
  • An optional voice-over instructor to give you some basic tips on how to sail.
  • Easy Race - Race and compare your score with the global community of players
  • Multiplayer - Sail with friends, including sailors sailing in VR Regatta!
