Iron Fish is a psychological deep-sea adventure


Iron Fish claims to be a "psychological deep-sea thriller". They might as well have called it Game Phil Will Never Play. Maybe you, dear reader, aren't innately terrified of inhospitable nightmare worlds, or the deadly gelatinous animals that dwell within them.* If that's the case, then you can probably make it through this announcement trailer without wanting to cry all of the water out of your body.

The game will challenge players to go exploring the depths. As the official site's About page puts it, "seven miles under the surface is dangerous territory for humans, especially when only five per cent of Earth’s oceans have been explored so far."

Iron Fish is due out at the end of the year.

*Seriously, what the hell is with jellyfish? They don't have brains. And they were proper shits in Ecco the Dolphin.

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
