Black Wing Foundation
, a Ukraine-based
, a Source-engine third-person shooter due for release
for PC and Xbox 360 next year. Some concept
online along with info on the game and its background story. Here's a bit:
2026. The World government resorted to stem cells and gene engineering to stage
the Judgment Day. They created genetic replications of Christ and Antichrist and
destroyed them right away in the course of events to set forth severe
fundamentalism on Earth, propped by the idea of communicating with God via
machines as well as by the army of cloned creatures, called Angels...
Every single step of mankind is controlled by the will of a handful technocrats
looking after several super-servers “linked-up to heaven”, so as to make any
their decision the only and right one. The population is kept in constant
stasis, technologies are forbidden, each and everyone has to “repent” once a
week, putting it in a more plain text “repent” means a weekly brain-scan. For
any wrong thoughts they find they may execute or send to Hell - cybernetic
virtual environment system that makes a man suffer immensely. In year 2026, the
dissidents, profoundly individual people across the globe set up scattered
resistance teams and try to topple the regime. They wage invisible wars, but the
strengths are far from being equal…
The protagonists of the game are people from various climes with different past,
but common and terrifying present. They are bound together with the idea of
overthrowing the Regime and destroying the Hell and Paradise virtual systems.
They will have to overcome many obstacles on their way to the truth, hidden from
people by the New World Government.
Throughout 14 missions grouped into 7 episodes, the player will take up roles of
Narumi Amano, - a genetically modified assassin, Sergei Thor – the captain of
east European resistance cell and Alexander Geist – a rather cynical psy-powered
smuggler with his own motives to hate the Regime. The game is planned for
release in Q2 of 2009 on PC and Xbox360.
