Akella Company and Atari, Inc. have signed a long-term agreement on distribution of Atari’s games line-up. First three games to be released in CIS are Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, Timeshift and Fahrenheit (also known as Indigo Prophecy).
In Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure you play as Trane, a talented graffiti artist with urban street smarts, crazy athletic abilities and a drive to make your mark where no other taggers have gone before. Every day you live "The Sport of Graffiti", risking your life to reach the city's dangerous sweet spots where a well-placed graf piece will bring respect and reputation. Progress your skills from being a "Toy" with Stickers and Marker Pens to "All City King" with an arsenal of Wild-styles, Roll-ups, Stencils and Wheat-pastes. But in your quest to become a Legendary Graffiti Artist, you must battle a corrupt police state that gets a stranglehold on New Radius. As you advance your Rep with more advanced Graf Techniques, you learn that there's more to Graffiti than just putting up your name.
Timeshift is a story-based first person shooter where player must use elements of time control from a device known as the Quantum Suit to overcome obstacles, solve the game's challenges and defeat a variety of enemies. Using Quantum Suit the player will possess the ability to slow, stop and reverse time allowing for unprecedented control over time in the game. The game-play implications of this technology are tremendous. Although some games have allowed for a cinematic slowdown effect, never before has time control been explored in such depth and with such a profound impact on the game-play.
In Fahrenheit you will play as Lucas Kane, an ordinary man, who kills completely stranger in the restroom of New York diner. After that Lucas becomes haunted by strange visions of a little girl calling for help. The manhunt is on, NYPD is looking for Kane. He must try to keep one step ahead of the police to discover what is happening to him. Inspector Carla Valenti and Agent Tyler Miles are heading up the investigation. A series of disturbing clues takes them into a world they can only dream of. Meanwhile the early onset of winter paralyses Manhattan in an unbearable grip of snow and cold. Each day the temperature drops as the winter conditions draw over the dark streets of New York.
The final countdown has already begun!
