Hydrophobia: First look at the game that's going against the flow

According to Blade Interactive's Pete Jones, "games have got to be done differently, it's got to change.

Look forward to hearing more about this.

Looks like a cool game. The whole keeping her calm thing was also used in Eternal Darkness. Which was a nice effect. The water looks great.
