CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The first details were
released today for Nether, the upcoming, online survival-horror game from
developer Phosphor Games and game production company Nether Productions. A
persistent-world, massively multiplayer online game based entirely in an urban
setting, Nether challenges players to survive day-to-day while trying to uncover
the truth behind the apocalyptic event that has changed mankind forever. Nether
is slated for release in the fall of 2013 for the Windows PC platform.
“Our focus is to veer away from some of the ‘traditional’ survival-horror
offerings in order to provide something new for the genre, with a great urban
setting, a different type of story and an experience that excites us as fans and
will be something definitely fresh and new for gamers.” “Our team has a strong
and varied background that includes the creation of post-apocalyptic titles, so
we’re really excited about Nether,” said Chip Sineni, Creative Director at
Phosphor Games. “Our focus is to veer away from some of the ‘traditional’
survival-horror offerings in order to provide something new for the genre, with
a great urban setting, a different type of story and an experience that excites
us as fans and will be something definitely fresh and new for gamers.”
In Nether, players are thrust into a decimated, post-apocalyptic city where the
remaining human population has degenerated into a chaotic state of lawlessness.
A pervasive sense of evil looms over the land as people struggle to survive and
rumors circulate of vile, demonic creatures that roam the cities to claim any
souls still living. As one of the few remaining survivors, players must decide
if they will Prey or Pray as they use skill and cunning to obtain food, weapons
and other supplies necessary for existence while trying to determine whether or
not to approach and trust other players or go at it solo.
Nether is currently in Alpha phase, with early-access planned for this fall.
