March debut for Hydrophobia

Release date washes down-stream

Blade Interactive's Hydrophobia has been out of the limelight for some months, the potentially innovative action title seemingly taking a back seat while bigger festive debutants strut their stuff.

However, we learn today that the game is still very much on the way, reporting that Blade will actually publish the game themselves come March 2009.

The third-person shooter is set aboard a ship, and will be built around realistic water and physics, among the best in the business, apparently. Puzzles will be key, the player forced to move around the wet stuff in order to reach inaccessible areas.

The game is being made for the PC and next-gen consoles (I hate that phrase), and looks visually lovely. It was originally due out this year. More soon.
