A 24-player game consisting of 4 networked pods holding 6 players each. Players took the roles of 'volunteer scientists' sent into the Loch Ness in a submersible to rescue Nessie's eggs from 'bounty hunters' (actually other players who all see themselves as rescuers). Each player had a unique input device designed to compliment the controls of others, to promote player interdependency.


Virtual Adventure hardware.


The game was introduced at the IAAPA Theme Park Expo in 1993 where it won Best of Show, and was in the SIGGRAPH Electronic Theater in 1994. It won 8 awards including the first 'Best Virtual Reality' award from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences.
