Ship Simulator 2006 Announced
Lighthouse Interactive has announced that it has acquired the rights to Ship Simulation 2006 in a deal with VSTEP. Here’s a bit on the game:
Ship Simulator 2006 is a revolutionary new game that puts players at the helm of some of the most varied and detailed ships to be found at sea, where they will need to perform a multitude of tasks, all set within a stunning 3D environment. Players will take control of a wide array of ship types, from massive cargo ships to speedboats, yachts, water taxis and even the mighty Titanic. The waters you sail are also as varied as the ships, from the biggest harbours in the world, such as Rotterdam and Hamburg, to the calm aqua marine waters of the Thai Phi Phi Islands. Gamers will experience how challenging it is to steer the Titanic through shallow water, or just how it feels to navigate a cargo tanker or tug boat – including how diverse the controls are.
The game lets players play with 8 different ship types in 700km2 recreated harbors in 40 different missions. There will also be a mission editor, ship exchange, dynamic weather system and credits to earn.
