GMX announces LEGACY: DARK SHADOWS

LONDON, UK (28 August, 2004) - GMX Media are today announcing that they will be publishing a new PC CD-ROM adventure title - Legacy: Dark Shadows. The game is a point & click adventure with a dark science-fiction storyline spanning a period of 200 years.

"Legacy: Dark Shadows is an adventure title that combines state of the art graphics technology with a storyline inspired by the best movies in Sci-Fi history." commented COO for GMX Media Eugene Perry. "It has been a labour of love for the developers at Razbor, who are keen to create an experience of unparalleled depth and content with a focus entertaining gameplay."

"The world of Legacy is a dark and cold one, and almost as frightening as the possibility that one day it might be our reality. It is a world where people are mere pawns in the never-ending chess-matches of the powerful few, a world where freedom and human rights are just words, relics from a time long gone." Zdravko Marijic Razbor.

The story so far...

In the year 1930 Japanese scientists discovered an unusual substance which when injected in human body starts to regenerate body cells stopping the process of aging. However, with the first few volunteers it became clear that something has gone wrong: after ten days the rejuvenation was so intense that a body couldn't take that much of a shock. All of the subjects died of a stroke. In 1936 Japan and Germany sign the Anti-Comitern Pact. Hitler's leading scientist Josef Mengele negotiated the terms of the cooperation with Japanese concerning the research of the regenerative substance.

These negotiations lasted until 1941, when Germans realized that their soldiers aren't able to bare the cold Russian climate. Japanese, concerned for their interests in Russia, decided to help them unconditionally. In December, 1941 the Institute for Hereditary Biology with its leading scientist dr. Mengele received a mysterious package from Japan. Only the chosen ones knew that it contained all records regarding the creation of the regenerative substance...

This was only the beginning - The effects of their actions would echo through two centuries!
