From under the sea comes a surprise announcement: the former PSN exclusive Derrick the Deathfin from Different Cloth is now available for Windows and Mac for $7.99. This papercrafted underwater side-scroller is all about speed and high scoring, or to quote our own Danny Cowan, "It's basically a murderous, arcade-style take on Sega's Ecco the Dolphin."
Different Cloth's Gordon Midwood says the PC version is a 1:1 conversion, with keys and key+mouse controls added. Worth noting, Derrick the Deathfin has a Steam Greenlight page, too. The developers are using the Humble Store for distribution, so that would make retroactively handing out Steam keys simple. The devs write: "Derrick would be a perfect fit for Steam, with integrated high scores, achievements, in big picture mode.... mmm imagine that!"
