Xbox Live's Hydrophobia is the lead game in Microsoft's latest collection of digital titles – Game Feast.

Like its Summer of Arcade promotion which featured games such as Limbo and Lara Croft & The Guardian of Light, Game Feast is Microsoft's pick of new downloadable titles in early Q4.

Hydrophobia will be available to download for 1,200 Microsoft Points (around 10) on September 29th, ahead of other digital games including comedy superhero action title Comic Jumper, Pinball FX 2 and platformer Super Meat Boy.

Set in an alternate future where the world is over-populated, Hydrophobia takes place on a city-sized ship sailing across the globe that is attacked by terrorists. As the crew's engineer, Kate Wilson, players must use tools to solve a series of puzzles and avoid drowning on the lower decks.

The game features a new ‘Hydro' engine that promises to model water realistically. It is in development at Dark Energy Digital and has been in production since 2007.
