Hydrophobia developer reportedly faces administration

Hydrophobia lets be honest even after 3 versions was still bad, and the team should have moved on. I'm not a games developer but I'm sure they can tell a bad game at some point and not waste 3 years, then a few more trying to fix it.

It's a shame too. The game had a very good concept unfortunately it didn;t have the best developers. Same thing happened to Turning point.

I remember being really hyped for hydrophobia, got my points and everything but the reviews put me off and waited for a price drop

but I still never got it, I don't think I will now shame because it was a good concept

Hydrophobia was a good idea, just poor execution.

Thats a shame, I rather enjoyed the demo. I would've bought it had it been a boxed retail product, but no box = no sale I'm afraid.
