Nordic games has released information and an announcement trailer for Deadfall Adventures, their new first-person action game that revolves around treasure hunting and supernatural creatures.
In 1938, James Lee Quatermain seeks an ancient artifact called The Heart of Atlantis, accompanied by a colleague named Jennifer Goodwin. They head to an Egyptian temple complex in the hopes of finding it there. Also, there are Nazis with an interest in the occult involved. Sounds kind of familiar, doesn't it?
The premise kind of sounds like an alternate version of the Raiders of the Lost Ark script, but the name Quatermain also calls to mind the literary figure, Allan Quatermain. Allan was an adventurer who lived out his days in Africa as an expert marksman. Maybe Nordic will tap into this character and fashion James Lee after him?
The game will run on the Unreal Engine 3 and promises lots of great first-person shooter action, as well as may puzzles and traps to overcome. It also promises to give players the sense that they're playing through summer blockbuster adventure.
"Deadfall Adventures marries the ethos of the Saturday morning matinee with the Summer blockbuster to create an original adventure which will grip players from start to finish,” said Klemens Kreuzer, Managing Director at Nordic Games.“
The game is set for July 30th, 2013 release on PC and Xbox 360. Let us know what you think of the game from the screenshots and the announcement trailer below. Does it remind you more of Indiana Jones or Uncharted? Sound off!
