Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm is a simulation computer game for the Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows developed by Liquid Dragon Studios and published by Greenwave Games. The game was created by Northwestern Games.

Overview[edit]

Alaskan Storm is a game based on the television show Deadliest Catch. The game throws you into the boots of a Bering Sea Captain, where you must carefully plan your fishing trip, maintain your boat, hire crew members and more.

The Game[edit]

Alaskan Storm lets you captain your own boat in a search for the Red Gold of the Bering Sea. Select one of five real crab boats, including the Northwestern, Cornelia Marie and more, or create and customize your own boat. Recruit and lead your own crew from a roster of twenty real life crab fishermen. Selecting the wrong boat or recruiting the wrong crew member can mean the difference between landing a Bering Sea jackpot or disaster. Lead your crew in the strategic search for King and Opilio Crab while battling to secure your catch and livelihood before other captains and crews get to the crab first.

Reception[edit]

Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm has received mixed reviews, including a passable 6.4 rating from IGN,[1] a poor 4.0 score from GameSpot,[2] and a 56 out of 100 score on Metacritic.[3]

Releases[edit]

Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm was originally due for release on both Xbox 360 and PC in April 2008 but was eventually released for the Xbox 360 in North America on June 17, 2008, with the PC version later released on August 19, 2008. The release date for the PC version was pushed back several times due to glitches found within the Xbox 360 version.
