TopWare Interactive has announced that it will publish Scivelation, the latest title from the Black Wing Foundation. If you’re anything like me, you probably assumed the Black Wing Foundation to be a selcouth society dedicated to taking over the world. Imagine my surprise when I recalled that they’re actually the Ukrainian developers responsible for the quirky Stalin vs. Martians.
According to a press release posted on IGN, Scivelation is an action packed third person shooter. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic future dominated by an iron-fisted global government known only as The Black Wing F… er… The Regime. As you’ve probably surmised, you won’t be working for them. A shame really, as the pay and conditions are quite generous. Instead, you’ll be enlisting with the resistance, who operate in the very definition of an unsafe workplace.
If the story strikes you as somewhat generic, the art design probably won’t inspire you either. The game’s hulking gunmen and murky corridors were brought to life using Epic Games’ aging Unreal Engine 3. Perhaps the game itself will offer a degree of nuance absent from the publicity.
Scivelation will be released for PC and unspecified “next-gen consoles” in mid 2010.
