Iron Fish’s Deep Sea Horror Now Shivering Timbers

I have recurring nightmares about driving over a bridge, only to find the deck is missing as I plunge to my death. That doesn’t have much to do with BeefJack’s Iron Fish [official site], but I absolutely hate the claustrophobic thought of drowning, and this game has a ton of water.

In Iron Fish, you play as Cerys, an elite British naval investigator, as she explores the harsh realm of the Atlantic depths. Everything that is bad in the ocean seems like it will remain in your general vicinity as you explore shipwrecks, man vehicles, and generally do sea-related things.

The game is touted as an “emergent horror sandbox”, so if you get tired of things related to the main plot eating your face, you can go swim around and find some optional face eating. Just don’t go doing it in real life. I realize it’s almost Halloween and all, but that’s a really bad idea.

Iron Fish is available now on Steam for £11.24/14,99€/$14.99.

    Cerys is a lady’s name, so I read the article and wondered why they’d named him Cerys. But according to the official site he is a she, which makes more sense.

    More like “submergent horror.” HA HA!!?

      I didn’t think anyone would be prepared to sink so low.

    From that video I expected
    heart beat…

    Breathe, breathe in the air
    Don’t be afraid to care
    Leave but don’t leave me
    Look around and choose your own ground

    For long you live and high you fly
    And smiles you’ll give and tears you’ll cry
    And all you touch and all you see
    Is all your life will ever be

    Run, rabbit, run
    Dig that hole, forget the sun,
    And when at last the work is done
    Don’t sit down, it’s time to dig another one

    For long you live and high you fly
    But only if you ride the tide
    And balanced on the biggest wave
    You race toward an early grave
