Morrisville, NC November 27, 2000 People around the world were stunned when a nerve gas attack left hundreds injured in Japan. Can you imagine what would happen if terrorists used biological warfare on a larger scale? In this modern day holocaust, a virus starts attacking people with a specific genetic make-up and there is no cure. Red Storm Entertainment and Holistic Design, Inc. bring you into this deadly world with the upcoming PC game, Bio-Strike.
Bio-Strike is a real time strategy game in which you are the CEO of a powerful genetics research lab. You have also been struck with an unknown and potentially lethal virus. By acquiring other companies and with the use of your own corporate security force, you will need to find out who is behind the creation of this lethal designer virus and stop them in their tracks. Time is not on your side.
Holistic Design, Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia has been chosen by Red Storm to bring this world to life. The crew at Holistic has been making games for the past 8 years and has a long history of designing successful strategy games. The lead on Bio-Strike, Ken Lightner, is best known for Merchant Prince, Machiavelli the Prince, Battles of Destiny, and Warhammer 40K: Final Liberation.
"Working with Red Storm on a Tom Clancy project has given us a chance to combine some of the best elements of a modern strategy game -- corporate takeovers, highly trained assault teams, computer hacking, research on the cutting edge of science, and more, Holistic Design, Inc. Director Andrew Greenberg said. In Bio-Strike, players have to act on, and react to, the sudden changes that today's science creates. While they can concentrate on certain areas, they have to also be ready for anything that gets used against them.
Bio-Strike will be released late in the first quarter of 2001 for the PC. The Tom Clancys Power Plays novel, Bio-Strike, based on the Red Storm game, is available this month in bookstores nationwide. Published by Berkley, the book is already on the New York Times paperback bestseller list.
