Dark Energy Digital
has released a new trailer and several more screenshots
, a survival adventure set in the near future when the world has become massively over-populated. The game takes place onboard the "Queen of the World", a city sized ship which tours the globe and is home to the wealthy elite. An epic backstory reveals the rise of Malthusian politics as all eyes look to NanoCell, one of the Founding Fathers of the great vessel, who has vowed to develop the technology which will feed the burgeoning human population. As systems engineer Kate Wilson, you must use every tool at your disposal to survive and escape the flooding lower decks of the great vessel. The game uses the HydroEngine technology where water behaves exactly as in real life - it flows, it makes surfaces and characters wet, it carries objects and bodies and interacts fully with Hydrophobia's entirely dynamic environments. Hydrophobia will be published exclusively on Xbox LIVE Arcade.
