T.I.G.'s Cause Origin Of The Species Delay!

For Immediate Release

Dallas, TX - March 24, 2005 - That's right, the constant harassment and threat of violence or worse from various Thugs in Government (T.I.G.) is forcing the relocation of Nu Generation Games every two weeks. As you can imagine, this sporadic packing and unpacking of the equipment makes sticking to the original ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES development schedule rather difficult.

So far the T.I.G.'s have been unsuccessful in their attempts at erasing the truth. "They may have thwarted our efforts for now, but they will never silence us," said Nick Bamford of Nu Generation Games. "It is important that the world knows about the insidious Project G.I.ANTS and the gene-altering chemical Triton-76."

ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES

Story:

An innocent camping trip into the Nevada desert takes a deadly turn when military black operations test a new viral weapon codename Project G.I.Ants, designed to create battle field infantry by mutating commonly found insects and parasites. When this test run goes horribly wrong the lives of 8 friends and a desert community is altered irrevocably.

Waking up in a jail appearing to be in New York, the player, an urban girl in her late teens, must remember what happened and set off to find her friends and save them from the madness. There are, of course, a couple of problems....

The presence of the virus "Triton-76" used by "Project G.I.Ants" in the surrounding air starts to trigger powerful and frightening mutations in the player and a standard order from a specific T.I.G. for the elimination of any witness ensues.

Colin M. Paterson, Operations Manager for Nu Generation Games was heard to say, "Look, we don't have much time. We must act before the final piece of the government's plan is in place. We have come to realize and accept the fact that Nu Generation Games was created for a reason. It is our destiny to use our skills and provide the general North American population with ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES, an interactive demonstration of the confirmed trouble that various government agencies are brewing behind closed doors and one possible outcome of their wanna-be God-like tampering."

The release date for ORIGIN OF THE SPECIES is now Q4 2005.
