Schizm goes gold

Dreamcatcher's North American version of the ambitious sci-fi adventure game will arrive in stores in mid-October.


A Dreamcatcher spokesperson confirmed today that the North American version of the ambitious adventure game Schizm has gone gold and will arrive in stores later this month. The game was developed by LK Avalon, and it was released in Germany in June. The game was created primarily for DVD-ROM, although it will also be released in an abbreviated version on a series of CD-ROMs.

Schizm is set in a space colony on a remote alien planet. Players assume control of two members of a supply vessel sent from Earth to the colony. The previous inhabitants of the colony have mysteriously disappeared, and players must investigate the area to find clues. The game's nonlinear story was created in collaboration with Australian science-fiction writer Terry Dowling, and it takes players through a wide variety of prerendered 3D environments. Players simultaneously control the game's two main characters, who can explore the gameworld independently.

Schizm will be available in stores in mid-October for an approximate retail price of $29.99. For more information, take a look at our previous coverage of the game.
