Go on, admit it, you're a sucker for the whole cyberpunk milieu, aren't ya?
Well, if so, perk up your ears for this bit of information: UK developer Team 17 (the team behind Worms, among other titles) and Italian developer Trecision are working on a title called Nightlong: Union City Conspiracy. The game is set in a dark, futuristic environment - the dark, futuristic world of 2099, in fact. Maybe the setting will thrill you if the news that Nightlong is to be a point-and-click adventure game isn't quite up to the job.
Players step into the well-worn boots of Joshua Reeve, "a 30-something tough-ass guy from Union City," who is called on by his old friend - now the mayor of Union City - to find out who is behind the terrorist attacks on the mayor's person and office. It all adds up to "a futuristic tale of intrigue, deception, and espionage," according to Team 17.
Nightlong will feature five levels rendered in SVGA graphics, "film-like FMV sequences," and, Team 17 asserts, more than 40 hours of gameplay.
The three-disc PC CD-ROM game is scheduled for an October release.
