Beyond Good & Evil… Beyond Evil & All Good!
For Immediate Release - Q1 2005
What would you do if you were abducted by aliens and had only a half-hog, half-pig to turn to? What would you do if you learned that everything you knew was a lie? Well, you'd do best to follow the example of heroine Jade, and fight against prejudice and propaganda to discover what truly is beyond good and evil in this epic 'third person' game of truth and deception.
The peaceful planet of Hyllis has fallen under attack by the Domz, an unrelenting alien race - or has it? The government would like you to think that the planet has been secured, but you, as freelance photographer and all-action reporter Jade, have been led to believe that this is not quite the whole truth...
Armed with a camera, various weird and wonderful sidekicks and some good investigative skills, you set out to uncover the truth and restore Hyllian freedom! Hovercraft racing, space travel, puzzle solving and some snappy photography are set against magical worlds featuring Rastafarian rhinos and giant talking walruses to ensure Beyond Good & Evil is a gripping gaming experience!
- Diverse Gameplay and freedom of movement
- An epic story of truth and deception
- Lead the rebellion - fight with stealth, force and wit
- Boundless, awe-inspiring worlds
- From the creator of the critically acclaimed Rayman franchise
