Infernal (World Premiere)

"Infernal" tells the story of Ryan Lennox, a handsome devil who works undercover for the forces of Hell as a special agent on Earth. The game play centres around the eternal battle between heaven and hell, good and evil.

You're a top intelligence agent, but also a devil straight from hell. You use the latest hi-tech gadgets, hack computers, fight hand-to-hand or provide cover fire. And when all this becomes insufficient, use your supernatural infernal powers. Ryan Lennox turns into a ghost, feeds himself with defeated souls and every weapon in his hands becomes truly devilish...

Unique atmosphere, unbelievable graphics, great amount of possibilities combined with simple intuitive steering, and a hero never seen before - this constitutes the essence of "Infernal".

Age of Pirates: Captain Blood (World Premiere)

"Age of Pirates: Captain Blood" is a pirate action game. The player is supposed to assume the role of brave and noble pirate captain, Peter Blood, and follow his intriguing and amazing adventures in 1685 on the Spanish Main.

Passing through hard times, he escaped from the tropical plantation hell and become a pirate. Soon the Caribbean was set ablaze by his deeds and exploits. "Age of Pirates: Captain Blood" gives the gamer the extraordinary chance to live the life of one of the most eccentric pirates of all time. Follow the pirate star in an amazing quest for gold, glory and love.

Ancient Wars - Sparta

"Ancient Wars: Sparta" is based on the history of the ancient ages and their main nations. Spartans, Persians and Egyptians are fighting for influence around Asia Minor, Europe and North Africa. Following historical events, the action takes place with different campaigns for all three races.
