IDEA Games will launch online distribution of PC game UFO: Afterlight!

Prague, Czech Republic - February 22, 2007

IDEA Games - gathering of independent developers - is proud to announce the launching of the online distribution of their new strategy PC game UFO: Afterlight developed by Altar Games!

UFO: Afterlight is a third installment in the legendary UFO series which was sold more than 350,000 copies worldwide. "We are excited to have an opportunity to sell UFO: Afterlight directly to players around the world, without the limitation of release dates or territories," said Martin Klima, Lead Producer at IDEA Games. "From now on you are able to buy UFO: Afterlight no matter where you live!"

For online distribution of UFO: Afterlight IDEA games choose to use its own internet server SprocketIdea.com where you can buy and download computer games developed by members of IDEA games.

The online release date was set to February 26, 2007.

Like its prequels, UFO: Afterlight is a mixture of squad based tactical action and global strategy with the gamer controlling the actions of elite ground troops, and the running and expansion of the home base while collecting resources.

Although the basic game specifications will remain similar to those of UFO: Aftershock, there are many new additions and improvements in both strategic and tactical elements of the game. For instance all the action will take place on the planet Mars; you'll have the opportunity to meet a number of new enemies, research new technologies, manufacture and use new advanced weapons, and even change the face of the planet in order to make it habitable to humans. All this plus a new graphical look, focus on RPG, smart scripting and a new insight on the series' storyline, makes the game a unique challenge to create a new home for mankind.
