WDC partner launches Iron Fish adventure game

This week sees the long awaited launch of Iron Fish, a thrilling new computer game created by Dean Edwards and creative games developer, a psychological thriller that takes place in the dark depths of the ocean. Players are immersed in an aquatic adventure, rife with peril and discovery, through the eyes of elite ocean investigator, Cerys, sent to solve the mystery of an unexplained mayday call.

The Iron Fish world is one full of beautifully designed marine creatures, including majestic humpback whales, as well as sharks lurking in the shadows who might just get a little too close for comfort.

Through WDC’s partnership with Iron Fish 50p from every sale will go directly to help WDC fight the threats faced by whales and dolphins in the real marine environment.

To mark the launch we have gone behind the scenes to speak with the game’s creator, Dean Edwards, to find out more about his passion for marine life and why he chose to support the work of WDC.
