Dark Energy Digital Closes Down

If you played Hydrophobia, then this really shouldn’t come to surprise to anyone. After a horrible release on the Xbox, they tried to retool the game in a later version. However, even the updated version was pretty awful. Naturally, the company going under was going to happen.

According to GamesIndustry.Biz “It is also suspected that the company’s assets could be bundled into a ‘pre-packed’ administration deal, with newly formed outfit Dark Energy Publishing, said to be lined up to take control of physical assets and IP at a bargain price.”

Currently the future is up in the air, but if Dark Energy Publishing doesn’t obtain the assets, then we might see someone else stepping up for the amazing water engine used in Hydrophobia.

    i was expecting hydrophobia 2 because of the ending of the first, and it was NOT awful, it was good.

    If you played the Xbox version, then the PS3 version continues past where the Xbox version ends. However, neither are a good ending.

    Your wrong, the PS3 version is nothing like the 360 version, a 100% completely different story. Ive played both.

    They should sell HydroEngine, or at least make a different game for it. Seems like it would be good for a combat diver game.
