Hydrophobia Prophecy confirmed as “comprehensive reinvention”

Tuesday, 26th April 2011 12:45 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Developer Dark Energy Digital confirmed today that recently rumoured Hydrophobia Prophecy is a real thing and will release on Steam and PSN on May 9.

Apparently, this is a “comprehensive reinvention” of the water-based action game, and “includes upgraded graphics, brand new gameplay mechanics, exclusive new levels, a reworked back story, a dramatic new ending, recast voice acting and much, much more.”

The reworking is all based on user feedback, apparently.

Such is the desire to hear what you think about the game, in face, a new in-game dev feedback system called Darknet has been included in Prophecy. Darknet allows players to deliver opinions at any point during the game, which are “automatically augmented with contextual data about the game state at that time.”

The game attracted controversy when it released in later 2010, with DED claiming Edge couldn’t have played the full thing before awarded it 3/10. Edge denied the allegations.

Hydrophobia Prophecy will launch on Steam on May 9 and can be pre-purchased for $10.19/£7.64, a price which includes a 15 percent pre-order discount.

The PSN version will follow.

    This is just the Steam/PSN version of the ‘huge rejig’ they did to the XBLA version a few months back. Apparently it’s much better than it was, but still a bit shit.

    One thing they never changed with the 360 update was the voice acting. They need fired pretty sharpish.

    Theres some sort of father figure engineer type bloke who is apparently meant to be Scottish. Uh huh.

    @4, actually he does sound Scottish, sounds like a gay dude from the East coast to me, or maybe Fort William area in the North, and I’m from Central Scotland.

    Anyhoo, glad I didn’t get the 360 version if it’s coming to Steam.
