Haarlem, The Netherlands – 23 October 2012 - Publisher Iceberg Interactive announces that it will be distributing the cel-shaded fire-fighting simulation for PC “Real Heroes: Fire-fighter” via its global network of digital partners, in a deal with US- based companies Open-2 and Scientifically Proven Entertainment. The game will also appear on retail shelves across the UK and Ireland on 23 November 2012.

Iceberg Interactive Sales Director Howard Newmark says: “Real Heroes: Fire-fighter is an exciting non-violent action game, featuring an all-star Hollywood cast, from shows including Buffy, Rescue Me, Aliens and The Shield. It is one of the best fire-fighting simulations created to date. Many of us wanted to become firefighters when we were young, it being a heroic and dangerous profession, so we are eager to get this in front of a global audience very soon.”

Celebrating the agreement, 4 brand-new screenshots have been released and can be downloaded here. Iceberg Interactive has also released a trailer for the game, which can be found at the Iceberg YouTube channel.
