"Escape from Paradise City offers an innovative blend of role-playing and strategy gaming mechanics within a dark, modern setting where the anti-hero rules the day," said Mario Kroll, cdv Software Entertainment USA's Director of Marketing and PR. "We are delighted to be able to expand our purchase options to our customers and are delighted that Direct2Drive's partnership offers a great, customer-friendly way to purchase and instantly play our titles."
Escape from Paradise City drops players into a dystopian world that combines a dark underworld and elements of the supernatural. In the game, the player is required to infiltrate the gangs of Paradise City on behalf of a powerful government agency that, despite its influence, has been unable to introduce even a glimmer of law and order to this horribly corrupt city. In an intertwining chapter-driven story, the player takes turns controlling one of three gritty characters that, for their own reasons, have "volunteered" to get to the bottom of the mystery behind the controlling crime syndicate's power.
