SANTA ANA, Calif., Nov. 30, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Crave Games, the full-service publishing division of Fillpoint LLC, one of the videogame industries' leading providers of online distribution, fulfillment, and e-commerce services for national retailers, today announced that the Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos™ game has shipped to retailers worldwide for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Wii™ system from Nintendo and the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system. Developed by DoubleTap, the game captures the drama and excitement of the Discovery Channel's Emmy-winning, #1 series Deadliest Catch, challenging players to take on the world's toughest job, crab fishing. The game is now available at retail stores nationwide for a suggested retail price of $49.99 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation®3 and $39.99 for Wii. In memory of the late Captain Phil Harris, a portion of the proceeds from the sales of the game will be donated to the Seattle Fishermen's Memorial.
Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos combines strategy and action as players chart a course through the unforgiving Bering Sea on a quest for opilio and king crab. To begin, players choose a boat to command for a season and strategically decide where and when to harvest the crab. The action comes when it is time to successfully retrieve crab pots from an angry sea. Players will test their skills in the real-life situations that captains and crew encounter daily, including setting pots, repairing the ship, sorting the catch and even rescuing men overboard.
Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos also provides plenty of ways to connect with the TV show for loyal fans, including competing with or against the real-life captains, hiring the actual crewmembers and fish the authentic boats from the show. The game includes a special video tribute to Captain Phil and the PlayStation®3 version features the new Move support as well.
Deadliest Catch: Sea of Chaos is rated "E 10+".
