It's not that strange for a developer to announce plans for a sequel to a successful game. It's not even that unusual for a publisher to make it clear that it intends to turn a successful game into a successful franchise
, either. Somewhat rarer is the announcement of a planned sequel to an unpublished game without the backing of a major publisher. Enter Blade Interactive which, in an interview with PS3 Attitude, made it known that it has sequel plans for its upcoming water-filled survival adventure game, Hydrophobia
. Whereas the first takes place on the Queen of the World, a huge floating city, the second game will take place in "a drowned Boston."
The first game, lest you've forgotten
, is being touted in particular for its impressive water physics. It all sounds very intriguing, let's hope the first game ... ahem ... makes a splash
so that the story penned for the sequel doesn't have to go to waste.
