Infogrames has announced that Eden Studios is currently working on a game named Kya: Dark Lineage for the PlayStation 2. In the game, players will assume the role of Kya, who is sent on a journey to find her brother as well as a safe way home. During her quest, Kya meets a tribe of beings known as the Nativs, who are being oppressed by the wolfens of the Brazul army. The game will feature nine worlds and more than 34 quests that will test Kya's different abilities, which players will be able to unlock and improve as they progress through the game. These powers will eventually enable Kya to reach areas that were previously inaccessible.
"We believe that Kya: Dark Lineage is one of those rare, genre-defining products and as such have invested the necessary time and resources to successfully launch the property in the interactive entertainment arena," said John Hurlbut, senior vice president of US marketing and general manager of the company's Beverly studio. "Kya: Dark Lineage promises an engaging and magical experience whose beauty, brilliance, and appeal will transcend established consumer demographics and result in a product of global appeal."
"From the start, Kya has been meticulously developed from the ground up both in terms of character and story development, right down to the proprietary game engine," said Stephane Baudet, chief executive officer of Eden Studios. "Kya promises to be a game of epic magnitude, and we are committed to delivering unprecedented gameplay to all fans of this genre."
Kya: Dark Lineage is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 2 this fall.
