TopWare Interactive has nabbed the rights to 'Scivelation', and Ukrainian developer Black Wing Foundation is working it now. It's a post-apocalyptic setting with oppression to fight.
They describe the oddly named game as "ambitious," one that'll transform the genre into an "unrelenting interactive experience" as players hit back against the Regime as a rebel.
While the premise of the game is certainly one that's dystopian itself, the developers hope to give us something original anyway. They have a shot as well, Black Wing Foundation was the studio behind the charming Stalin vs. The Martians.
This "ambitious, story driven, action game" is powered by the Unreal III Engine so at least we can expect some interesting explosions and the like. "Scivelation will transform the Third-Person Shooter genre into an unrelenting interactive experience, hurling the player into a blockbuster journey, steeped in conflict and veiled in uncertainty," read the release.
"Set in the distant future, Scivelation’s universe is a world born out of the ashes of conflict and misery. An oppressive global dictatorship, known as the Regime, has risen to power after the aftermath of the Apocalypse; aggressively seeking out and eliminating any opposition to their tyrannical government."
"With this capricious, dystopian reality as a backdrop, the player will take his or her place amongst the ranks of the resistance, waging war throughout the furthest reaches of the globe in this action-packed battle for freedom and survival."
Let's hope the Ukrainian developers have big secret gameplay plans stuffed up their sleeve ready to amaze us when it arrives on next-gen consoles and PC in 2010.
