Hamburg, Germany: August 14, 2006 – The upcoming hit adventure game Undercover: Operation Wintersun now has a home on the web: at www.undercover-game.com, gamers will find everything about the espionage thriller set in Nazi Germany.
In addition to info about the game and its exciting story, adventure gaming fans will find screenshots, artworks and much more. Soon to come are videos and fascinating background articles. The official forum for the game is already available for all discussion of the promising point & click adventure.
The year is 1943 and Undercover sees players take on the role of British physicist Dr. John Russell, who is sent into the lion’s den by the MI6 to follow leads on German research into a devastating weapon of mass destruction.
Russell is far from a trained agent, but is accompanied by two MI6 operatives on his dangerous foray into heavily guarded archives and secret research facilities – but can he trust them or are they pursuing their own agenda?
The shocking truth is revealed in Berlin’s Heereswaffenamt: documents confirm that the Nazis are very close to completing the development of a “uranium bomb” – a nuclear device! The new weapons system is already nearing the first test. Russell’s mission takes on a terrifying new dimension: his search for the production facilities leads him right into the hands of a sinister German general, who has his own fanatical plans with the powerful, new weapon… Russell’s mission is only just beginning!
Even though the story of Undercover: Operation Wintersun is fictitious, it is grounded in historic facts, framed both by authentic details and actual events, as well as myths and speculation about the Third Reich. Intricately designed backgrounds, detailed 3D animation and many cinematic cutscenes create a frighteningly real atmosphere.
ANACONDA will release the adventure game Undercover: Operation Wintersun by the end of September. It is being developed by Austrian developer Sproing Interactive Media.
