Dark Energy Digital have sent out a pre-announcement announcement stating that they have taken in the feedback and criticism on Hydrophobia and that they will announce measures on Monday to "purify" the game. Hydrophobia currently holds a 58/100 score on Metacritic (based on 45 reviews).

Pete Jones, Joint Creative Director, added the following to the press release:

"Dark Energy is a community of gamers, and we want those that play our game to enjoy the experience. We'd like to thank everybody who has taken the time to produce feedback on our game. We've poured over the data from community feedback and analysed every review, comment or blog we could find. Nearly 250 reviews of the game were published, either in physical media or on the net. Some of them made good reading, while others were painful to read. However, to actively listen to the community, we cannot be selective in those we listen to, and there is no point in listening unless we are prepared to act. We have the purest of motivations and we will be announcing our detailed response at 11am GMT on Monday, so we'll be sending a press release your way then."

The developers have launched a countdown.

It will be interesting to see how this one plays out...
