Iron Fish was delisted from Steam on June 25th, 2018. In the Steam Greenlight program for nearly a year the game was Greenlit by the Steam community and released on October 25th, 2016. The day after release a community forum post was made by the developers asking for bug reports from players. The last response was issued on April 11th, 2017 promising more updates to the game. It appears the team chose to take the game down rather than field support issues, hopefully returning soon with an updated version.
We were unable to find an official public statement from the developer or publisher as of this writing. A “Download Now” button has been added to the game’s homepage but it seems the site may have been compromised and we did not attempt to acquire the game.
About the Game
“What will a simple mayday call bring to the surface? Iron Fish is a psychological deep-sea thriller that challenges players to navigate the dangers that lurk at the bottom of the ocean, where humans no longer have the upper hand. What sleeping horrors await you in unexplored chasms?
Dive into the depths of an aquatic nightmare: Iron Fish places you at the helm of a psychological thriller as you stumble across the sleeping horrors of the deep. Explore Cerys’ turbulent history, as her story and mind unravel before your eyes.
Iron Fish takes place in a vast underwater world. You will begin in the relatively safe environment of manta rays and gentle whales but you will be quickly plummeted deeper into the fathoms of the ocean. Each chapter you embark upon sees you descend further into the unknown, with an expansive environment to explore, unique to each level of descent.
Explore a vast underwater environment. From the shimmering subsurface to the deep, dark depths of the Atlantic, you will immerse yourself in gorgeous environments, dynamic soundscapes and an intriguing plot.
Discover lost relics, civilisations and mysteries. Everything you see and experience will guide you through the game’s mysterious, twisting narrative, challenging even the most accomplished explorer.
Built in Unreal Engine 4, Iron Fish offers a stunning single player experience with endless replayability with a collection of Steam achievements to conquer as well.
Collect and master equipment and vehicles to better increase your odds of survival, as well as assist your intrepid adventuring.
Evade a variety of ocean-dwelling nasties. With less than 4% of the oceans having been explored, survival is not guaranteed against creatures that blur the boundaries between science and fiction. There are no weapons against such beasts; tactics and diversion are your only hope.
Experience an emergent horror sandbox. No experience is the same. Follow the given missions or explore your massive environments to unearth further secrets and horrors. Ambient, terrifying sounds and creature behaviour develop and affect the state of mind the protagonist, plunging you deeper into the growing psychosis of isolation.
We are proud to be supporting WDC, Whale and Dolphin Conservation through our Iron Fish partnership. For every copy of the game sold, 50 pence will be donated directly to the charity, to contribute to the great work they are doing around the world to protect beautiful whales and dolphins and their habitats.“
