Lighthouse to Launch Ship Simulator 2006

Leading publisher Lighthouse Interactive announced today that it has acquired
the rights to the innovative PC game “Ship Simulator 2006”, in a deal with Dutch
developer VSTEP.

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
harbors 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.
