Improved Version Of Hydrophobia Flooding Steam, PSN
If you've always been afraid of the water, maybe you need to face that fear.
Today, Dark Energy Digital has announced a "comprehensive reinvention" of Hydrophobia for Steam and the PlayStation Network. Hydrophobia Prohecy will boast "brand new gameplay mechanics, exclusive new levels, a reworked back story, a dramatic new ending, recast voice acting and much, much more," the developers worked to improve the Xbox 360 release thanks to feedback from the Hydrophobia Listening Post. Said Dark Energy's Pete Jones:
"We could’ve just ported Hydrophobia Pure over to Steam and PSN after the positive response it received, but we decided to go much further. The community really blew us away with the incredible response to Hydrophobia Pure and the outstanding level of feedback on the listening post, so we wanted to return the favour and ensure we created a bigger and better experience in every possible respect with Hydrophobia Prophecy for Steam and PSN."
Well, yeah, an improved title is definitely better than a port. And the coolest part is that Dark Energy has implemented a direct feedback system in Prophecy: it's called Darknet, and "allows players to deliver specific opinions at any point during the game, which are automatically augmented with contextual data about the game state at that time." Hey...every game should have that!
Hydrophobia Prophecy will hit Steam first on May 9 and the PSN release will follow. For more info, visit the game's official site.
