Developer: NuclearVision Entertainment GmbH
Genre: First-person Shooter
Platform: PC CD-ROM
Release: March 2005
Whiptail Interactive has struck a worldwide publishing deal with respected Germany-based developer, NuclearVision Entertainment GmbH for its latest project, Psychotoxic. The European side of the deal will see Whiptail Interactive publishing the title in all territories with the exception of Germany, Austria and Russia where the game has already been published and well received by trade and consumers alike. Whiptail's US office will publish the title stateside.
A first-person shooter set in 2022 New York City at the time of the arrival of Armageddon, The Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse is preparing to doom planet Earth. Assuming the role of heroine Angie Prophet, the player is humanity's last hope, the gatekeeper standing in the way of this madman's quest to wreak hell on Earth.
The game follows Angie Prophet's quest as she battles zombies, bad cops and other forces of evil. Discovering herself to be half-woman, half angel as she progresses through the game, she develops six different supernatural powers including invisibility, the ability to slow the passage of time and also to influence other characters by entering their dreams. Played over 21 levels, Prophet's arsenal of nineteen weapons is set to include revolvers and F.B.G.'s (big guns!).
Psychotoxic features graphics powered by the Trinigy Vision graphics engine which allows advanced effects such as per-pixel lighting, self-shadowing and volumetric fog.
Commenting on the deal, NuclearVision Entertainment's Tim Bruns offered, "Psychotoxic's unique level design of 21 real scenario levels and 8 differently themed dream levels featuring over ninety carefully-crafted opponents will enchant gamers worldwide!" Chris Warrender, Whiptail Interactive's publishing director commented, "We're very happy to have secured this title on a worldwide basis. We're looking forward to doing great business with Angie Prophet. I know for a fact she's looking forward to working with me on those late nights as we localise Psychotoxic!"
Psychotoxic is slated for a March 2005 release.
