Actrio launch

We are so pleased to announce our partnership with Actrio Studio and their incredible ocean exploration Virtual Reality (VR) game, The Great Ocean.

The Great Ocean is an immersive VR game that lets you take control of a deep-diving ROV and explore fascinating spots like the Galapagos or the Deep Sea. Use your upgradeable tools to solve quests like freeing jailed whales, or exploring sunken WW2 battleships.

Not only can you explore and learn about the ocean and the creatures who call it home, but Actrio Studio will generously donate 20% of their net revenue from in-game dolphin adoptions to WDC’s vital conservation work, making a real-world impact on protecting dolphins and whales.


“We’re so excited to be partnering with Actrio Studio on this incredible game.” Says Sally Ward, digital partnerships manager at WDC. “Actrio have jumped straight into the deep end with their support and on top of the dolphin adoption donations, the wonderful team have developed unique WDC-related missions and content in the game including freeing belugas from a sea pen and saving a whale from entanglement. They are also developing a special WDC-branded demo version of the game to support our outreach and engagement at events like Develop:Brighton and the World Ocean Summit.”

"We are thrilled and honoured to work with WDC on our game The Great Ocean." Says Michael Geidel, producer at Actrio Studio. "With the knowhow and guidance from WDC we create more authentic levels and missions and at the same time our players can contribute to saving the real whales and dolphins worldwide." 


Sally and Michael also collaborated in October at the AWE Conference in Vienna, giving a fascinating talk about how XR experiences can positively impact ocean health, using this partnership between WDC and Actrio Studio as an example! You can catch the full talk on YouTube here.

A huge thank you to Actrio Studio for their generous support! You can purchase The Great Ocean now on the META Quest store and wishlist on Steam.
