Derrick the Deathfin, Cute Papercraft Game, On Steam
It’s taken quite some time to get there, but papercraft adventure Derrick the Deathfin has finally made its way on Steam, for a price of €7.99, currently discounted 10% as a launch incentive. Its most highly regarded element is its visual style, but it’s a pretty fluid game as well.
This title goes way back, all the way to 2012. That’s “way back” in internet days. Derrick the Deathfin first made an appearance on Playstation 3, where it managed to gain a little attention and even claimed a respectable Metacritic score of 72.
On PC, however, this underwater title sort of slipped into anonymity and didn’t even climb onto Steam directly. Instead, it was relegated to Steam Greenlight, where the project remained for the longest time, while the PC build was available in other stores.
Now, it’s finally possible to play Derrick the Deathfin on your favored digital platform. If you’re a fan of classics like Ecco the Dolphin or Sonic the Hedgehog, this may be something you enjoy as well.
Through side-scrolling paper levels, Derrick the Deathfin has to crush incoming enemies with colorful cartoon bubbles, popping sounds when you zip by. Additionally, there are some fast-paced platform elements, such as flying through hoops and doing loops.
Derrick the Deathfin also has a few boss fights and so on. There are 32 levels to go through in total.
It’s been years, but we still can’t get over the fact how cute this game. Plus, you get to play as a shark, wrecking up the ocean, so that’s a selling point.
