Game on! Iron Fish partners with WDC

WDC is thrilled to announce the launch of a new partnership with the makers of a brand new computer game, Iron Fish (see trailer below).

Iron Fish, created by Dean Edwards and creative games company BeefJack takes place in a gorgeous oceanic environment where players are immersed in an aquatic adventure, rife with peril and discovery. The world is full of marine creatures, beautifully made, and as close to the real-life creatures as possible.

A portion of all sales of Iron Fish will go directly to WDC, supporting worldwide efforts to protect whales, dolphins and the oceans.

Creator, Dean Edwards, has a special affinity for marine biology, which is clear from the care taken with Iron Fish. Talking about the partnership with WDC he said; ‘I am honoured to have this opportunity to support WDC and the extremely valuable work they do around the globe for our beloved marine mammals and oceans.’

‘We are extremely grateful to Dean and all the team at BeefJack for the support that they are giving to WDC,’ said WDC CEO, Chris Butler-Stroud. ‘Their generosity and commitment to the welfare of whales and dolphins will help us continue with vital projects and campaigns and to help create a world where each individual is safe and free.’ 

‘We also welcome a game that opens up the mysterious world of the deeper oceans to new generations. Iron Fish demonstrates that games have the power to transport us into a challenging and fascinating world, and make us want to discover more about the incredible creatures and environments that make up this remarkable planet.
