Nordic Games have today announced their latest game titled Deadfall Adventures, an FPS set in 1938 that promises to deliver a blend of shooting, puzzle solving and adventure when it releases on July 30th for PC and Xbox 360.
Powered by the Unreal 3 engine, Deadfall Adventures follows the tale of James Lee Quatermain as he has to escort Jennifer Goodwin, a US agent and former colleague of his, to an ancient Egyptian temple to recover an ancient artifact called the Heart of Atlantis. As you would sort of expect things quickly go downhill when James lee Quatermain (that is a bloody awesome name, I must say) finds himself caught up with the Ahnenerbe, which are the Nazi’s occult specialists, who also want to get their mitts on the Heart.
“Deadfall Adventures marries the ethos of the Saturday morning matinee with the Summer blockbuster to create an original adventure which will grip players from start to finish,” says Klemens Kreuzer, Managing Director at Nordic Games. “We’re putting players into the heart of the action, just as they’d dreamed as children, staring at their heroes on the silver screen. It’s fantastic to be working on Deadfall Adventures with The Farm 51 from the roots up; it’s going to be an exciting summer.”
“We’re thrilled to be working on our second project alongside Nordic Games,” says Wojciech Pazdur, Development Director at The Farm 51. “We’re putting everything into the games’ stunning graphics to create a unique experience that will be both challenging and engaging. The great thing about Deadfall Adventures, it makes us discover the little Indiana Jones in all of us.”
Indiana Jones, you say? Sold. Any game that takes inspiration from the hat-wearing hero is okay in my book.
Deadfall Adventures is due for release on July 30th of this year on PC and Xbox 360. Fingers crossed for a fun romp.
