was released earlier this year to wildly mixed reviews. Whether you loved or hated it, Dark Energy - the game's developer - has stated that "We have listened." (You can read the full statement in the press release.) A detailed response to some of the most vocal concerns will be released on Monday. As proof, there is a new page on the Hydrophobia's site
that says a purification is in progress. The page even comes complete with a countdown timer that will expire on Monday.
Stay tuned for further information on December 20.
We have listened
Dark Energy Digital, the developers of Hydrophobia, have been listening to the community and to the critics. We have listened to all those who loved our game, and to those who didn’t.
We have a new announcement regarding Hydrophobia coming up on Monday, and the countdown has begun at:
“Dark Energy is a community of gamers, and we want those that play our game to enjoy the experience. We’d like to thank everybody who has taken the time to produce feedback on our game. We’ve poured over the data from community feedback and analysed every review, comment or blog we could find. Nearly 250 reviews of the game were published, either in physical media or on the net. Some of them made good reading, while others were painful to read. However, to actively listen to the community, we cannot be selective in those we listen to, and there is no point in listening unless we are prepared to act. We have the purest of motivations and we will be announcing our detailed response at 11am GMT on Monday, so we'll be sending a press release your way then.” – Pete Jones, Joint Creative Director
Merry Christmas from everybody on the Hydrophobia team.
