Hydrophobia priced, kicks off XBLA ‘Game Feast’

Dark Energy Digital’s “survival-adventure” Hydrophobia will kick off Microsoft’s upcoming “Game Feast” on Xbox LIVE Arcade on Wednesday, September 29. The game will run you 1200 MS Points, the equivalent of about $15 out of your pocket.

As you might guess, Hydrophobia‘s hook is its water effects, powered by Dark Energy’s “HydroEngine.” The game gates place on a floating city-sized ship which is attacked, leaving the player (as systems engineer Kate Wilson) to do everything she can to survive the flooding vessel.

Game Feast will continue with Comic Jumper (October 6), Pinball FX 2 (October 13), and Team Meat’s Super Meat Boy (October 20).
