Ruff Trigger: The Vanocore Conspiracy

Octagon to Secure Worldwide Publishing for Playstos’ Debut Title Disable the Genetic Time Bomb in Ruff Trigger CHAPEL HILL, NC and MILAN, Italy, 2 July 2002 - Octagon Entertainment, Inc. has teamed up with Italian development team Playstos™ Entertainment to find worldwide publishing for Ruff Trigger: The Vanocore Conspiracy, an action-packed, shoot'em up experience currently in development for a next-gen console and PC. Vanocore Corporation is a suspicious conglomerate that specializes in the genetic engineering of pets, including the Piglet, one of its most popular commodities. An error in the genetic code has caused the harmless beings to transform into ravenous fiends known as Piglots. Many Piglets have been released into the Tyke Galaxy and it is only a matter of time before the docile animals turn into fierce beasts. It is now up to one agent to capture as many Piglets as possible before the cosmos becomes overrun with the morphing creatures. Ruff Trigger, an upright version of the Alaskan malamute sled dog, is the premier bounty hunter for Boss Private Investigation Agency (BPIA). Ruff agrees to hunt down the Piglets, aided or hindered along the way by information from his cohorts. In his pursuit, Ruff snaps up 13 bizarre but vicious weapons and maneuvers destructive machinery and vehicles to accomplish his mission. Action takes place on the three planets of the Tyke Galaxy, each full of diverse terrains, elevators and moving platforms as well as high-security and underground areas. Among Ruff's associates are an enchanting but fierce Siamese cat and a strapping desert fox. Adversaries include the enormous police Ratz, the Skul alien guards and the Spygoats of the Secret Service Federation, not to mention other bounty hunters, outlaws and dangerous creatures that populate the Tyke Galaxy. The ultimate dangers, however, lie in the bowels of the corrupt Vanocore Corporation. Ruff Trigger's single player gameplay offers Story Mode and Out on Bail on the PC version. For the console version, multiplayer mode allows up to four players to compete against each other or computer AI via split screen, and players can additionally select core characters as well as defeated enemies while contending on a minimum of three arenas. Ruff Trigger also offers many exciting power-ups, a wide range of equipment and control options. Octagon agent Jerod Kirby recently signed Playstos as a client. "I am very impressed with the professionalism and talent level of the people at Playstos. We are very excited to be working with the team." Playstos CEO Luca Da Rios and Director Gabriele Baldissera, "To launch our title we could not have asked for anything more than being supported and represented by the professionalism and experience Octagon offers, with whom we will undoubtedly do great things."
