June 23, 2006 - Edge of Reality, the independent Austin, TX based game developer, today announced the development of their own self-funded next-gen project, Cipher Complex. After eight years of consistently producing commercially successful titles for various leading publishers, Edge of Reality has decided the time is right to give life to its own internal vision. Cipher Complex, the first completely original title from the company, is an intense, cinematic military combat game that will deliver a brutal shot of adrenaline straight to the hearts of next-generation gamers.
"The evolution of action games has seemed to plateau, perhaps because of the emphasis on sequels," said Binu Philip, president of Edge of Reality. "We are exploring and developing brand new styles of gameplay and methods of storytelling. The concept and mechanics of Cipher Complex have been incubating in our mind for years, and with power of the next-gen consoles, we can finally make our dream project a reality."
In Cipher Complex, a recon satellite is mysteriously blasted from orbit, and when diplomatic requests for information are stonewalled, the US government is forced to call in its last resort - Operative John Cipher. Charged with uncovering the truth by any means necessary, Cipher is going behind enemy lines to extract information the hard way.
Cipher Complex is slated for release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2007.
