BARI, ITALY (October 20, 2005) - P.M. STUDIOS today officially announce the Italian release date of the 3D Action-RPG Game- ETROM: "The Astral Essence".
Etrom "The Astral Essence" will be released in Italy on November 16, 2005
"We are thrilled and proud to start the publication of our project in Italy. Etrom is a product that has been entirely designed and made in Italy by a 100% Italian team! We are sure that the Italian players will appreciate this aspect. Etrom is an open project and addressed to a worldwide audience, but its conceptual and cultural roots are knowingly European, as far as its myths, knowledge and imaginary worlds are concerned. As I said at the beginning of the development of this great work, Etrom cannot be considered simply as a game but it's a Universe. P.M. Studios is inviting you to enter this Universe..." - Fabio Belsanti Managing Director & Lead Designer-P.M. Studios.
Earth 476. A.H.E.F. (After Human Empire Foundation): the Future?
Etrom is an epic adventure that will take you into a dark future where warring societies are divided not just by walls, but also by laws, secrets, religions and the terrifying Void Lands. In a world with fantastic technologies, people will find their future in ancient civilizations governed by mysterious hidden energies.
Etrom leads you across realms and cities, through democracies and "nazi" dictatorships. It is a journey through space-time portals, amongst the Thrones of the Abyss, and beyond the gates of the City of Light. With a huge number of locations, and settings it plunges you into a world of rituals, fraught with secret-service plots and held together by dark spells.
Etrom is an endless journey with AND against demons, secret divinities, dragons, mechs, hovertanks, different races and intelligent entities from across space and time...From a brooding world of megacities you will set out across many dimensions and realities to face men and gods projected into the absolute infinity.
