Brighton, February 16 th, 2012 – It’s not only spearfishing: Depth Hunter, the new underwater hunting action simulation by developers Biart, takes players deep down into the depth of the oceans to simulate the excitement of breath-hold spearfishing, and more. Lace Mamba Global today announces to release a retail edition of the PC version of the game in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Scandinavia, the Benelux countries, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and Poland. Depth Hunter is scheduled hit the UK and Irish retail shelves on April 20 th, 2012.
Depth Hunter offers 25 exciting missions in which players will hunt different fish species and face the difficulties of breath-holding spearfishing, an ancient fishing method. Players can also search for treasures and take underwater photos to capture the beauty of the simulated, detailed and lively underwater worlds.
Spearfishing and Underwater Hunting are ancient fishing and hunting methods, used to catch fish and shellfish by using a mechanical harpoon. Today, spearfishing is a sports activity in many countries around the world, especially in the UK, around the Mediterranean Sea and in South America. Spearfishers hunt while diving apnoea, holding their breath, so have to coordinate their energy carefully while monitoring their prey, especially in tactically challenging hunting situations.
Depth Hunter is developed by Biart Company, who recently successfully released the underwater third person shooter Deep Black.
