Venetica Announced

DTP announces Venetica, a new RPG in the works at German developer Deck 13 for release on PC and Xbox 360 some time next year. There are some screenshots on AtomicGamer along with a gameplay trailer. Word is:
Hamburg/Germany, May 27th, 2008 – Deck 13, one of Germany’s most successful game developers, has teamed up with dtp entertainment to present Venetica, a visually stunning role-play game with a cryptic storyline. Venetica mixes emotions and action in a unique free roaming and living sixteenth century world full of surprise.

In the era of Venetica, Death walks among the living as a flesh & blood being, carrying out the deeds of an ancient council known by a few as Corpus. Each generation of the Corpus is set with the task of selecting the next predecessor of the bringer of death. Unfortunately, the most recent council had unwittingly selected a crafty necromancer who is determined on bringing death and destruction to the world.

This conniving imposter has managed to transform into an undead fiend, which no mortal man can kill. This power-crazed necromancer is hell-bent on destroying the reinstated Death and the council of Corpus. Only one person stands in his way, Scarlett, the daughter of Death.

Up to now she has known nothing of her origins, her powers and the capabilities that she possesses – now she is challenged to learn how to develop and use her powers to save her father and curse the necromancer and his henchmen to the eternal hereafter.

dtp entertainment is going to release Venetica in 2009 for PC and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

saturation of the market with dozens of consoles? check
hundreds of mostly low-quality games? check
Hundreds of games in development? check

There's one difference though. Back then it was almost entirely relegated to kids and nerds. There was a much smaller amount of consumers that were interested in them.

These days the market is positively huge, but then again GTA4 is only 1 game out of many.
