Atari, one of the world’s most recognized brands and a third-party video game publisher, today announced that it will publish Downstream Panic! The game will offer unpredictable, fast-paced, tactical puzzle-action that places players in the position of a sea-creature preservationist out to save the world from a fantastic cyclone that has blasted the world’s fish into the Earth’s atmosphere.
It is up to the player to protect fish from land, predators and other obstacles through the use of a variety of innovative tools as they guide fish on their descent back into the ocean. Developed by Eko Software, Downstream Panic! for the PSP (PlayStation Portable) system is expected to ship early 2008.
Fans of fast-paced puzzle games will fall in love with this new twist on the fish-out-of-water idea, said Donny Clay, producer, Atari, Inc. We are thrilled to deliver this fun and interesting spin on the puzzle genre and look forward to publishing this title for the PSP system.
In Downstream Panic! players will save their scaly sea-friends in more than 80 different levels with five different customizable environments. Three different game modes (adventure, free play and survival) bring more of a challenge to the aquatic mix. With more than 10 hours of standard gameplay and downloadable content, Downstream Panic! aims to offer more than just the average PSP system puzzle fare.
