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.
