DERRY CITY - April 04, 2011– Today Dark Water Studios announced the German retail release of DogFighter, the next-generation PC game from the Independent Northern Irish game development studio in German-speaking countries. The special edition of the game features an exclusive aircraft. DogFighter® is available throughout German speaking countries now.
The deal, inked with Berlin-based games publisher“Just A Game GmbH”, will see the special edition of DogFighter® made available throughout Europe's German-speaking territories (Germany, Austria and Switzerland).
“ Don’t expect to be trimming your flaps or checking your oil pressure!” said Sean 'MooTV' McCafferty, Design Lead at Dark Water Studios. “ With DogFighter we set out to adrenalise the standard aerial-combat game. A DogFighter pilot is a thrill seeker, a crack shot; someone that wants the thrill of the hunt with none of the tail-chasing hangups usually found in aerial combat games.”
PC GAMER calls it“... a cracker jack combination of Quake like blasting, breakneck turns and dizzying loop the loops…”
“ DogFighter has over 130,000 players and it is great to see the demand for it is growing. We look forward to seeing the German-speaking countries embrace the full-throttle thrills that DogFighter offers” said Lee Fallon, Head of Business Development. “ At Dark Water Studios we place an emphasis on developing original IP for domestic and international markets. The fact that we have signed this deal with JAG is a strong show of support that the games we create are what the market wants right now. This is very encouraging news.”
