Outside of soldiers, athletes, and city planners, few professions are readily adapted to games. Czech developer Mindware Studios and Texas-based publisher Aspyr Media are taking a stab at adding psychologist to the list later this year with the release of Dreamkiller on the Xbox 360 and PC.
A first-person shooter, Dreamkiller puts players in the role of Alice Drake, a supernatural psychologist with the unique ability to enter her patients' minds and fight their inner demons in the most literal sense. Drake will traverse the game's 12 levels not with textbooks and theory, but with an arsenal of special abilities and dual-purpose weapons, such as a minigun that also lobs grenades at enemies.
Dreamkiller is set for an October debut. For more on the game, check out GameSpot's hands-on impressions.
