Dark Energy Digital has realized that listening to customer feedback is a good idea and wants players to provide even more.
Dark Energy Digital is continuing to work on making Hydrophobia a better game in the months after it was first released. While the developer released a massive update for the game last month, it turns out that Dark Energy Digital has launched a website designed specifically to gather feedback about Hydrophobia.
The Hydrophobia Listening Post gives players the option to rate and comment on just about every aspect of the game.
According to Dark Energy Digital's creative director Pete Jones:
"We launched Hydrophobia Pure after conducting extensive research into the issues players and critics had and the features you wanted to see included.
"We were absolutely blown away by the response you gave us, and the reception Hydrophobia Pure received. We believe there should be a two way relationship between developer and players, and as such we are committed to continuing the philosophy of collecting and acting upon your feedback to our games."
As previously noted, Hydrophobia was met with incredibly mixed reviews when it launched, with many critics faulting clunky gameplay and a number of other issues. When Hydrophobia Pure was released, it was hailed by many as a vast improvement over the original version.
