Sci-fi Trilogy Game for the Xbox - 2004

Award-Winning Novelist Orson Scott Card Collaborates on Back-Story For New Series of Video Games and Novels Strengthening its position as one of the industry’s fastest-growing publishers, Majesco, today announced Advent Rising, the first in a trilogy of games for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and personal computer. Featuring an unprecedented collaboration between interactive entertainment and science fiction writing, famed novelist, Orson Scott Card, embellishes on the gripping storyline behind Advent Rising, and will author a novel based on the game. Both are scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2004. "While technological advances continue to open doors for exciting new gaming experiences, storyline remains the one element most critical in allowing the gamer to feel like an essential part of the game’s outcome," said Ken Gold, Vice President of Marketing for Majesco. "The tremendous literary vision of Orson Scott Card coupled with GlyphX Games’ masterful approach to graphics and game play mechanics, ensure that Advent Rising will captivate the mind and emotions of the player, while pushing the boundaries of gaming to a unprecedented new level." "What I found most interesting about collaborating with Majesco and GlyphX on the Advent Rising project was their sincere desire to create a game in which the story served as the springboard for all the other elements," added Orson Scott Card. "Creating an engrossing story is paramount in establishing credibility with players and allows them to connect with what’s happening on screen." In Advent Rising, a common legend pervades the galaxy - that of a powerful, ancient race that will one day unite the universe. Millions of cultures from vastly distant worlds revere and hallow these mythological beings known as humans. One race, the Seekers, know humans actually exist and are threatened by their potential power. Under the guise of benevolent explorers, the Seekers travel throughout the galaxy in a desperate attempt to eradicate any human society they unearth. Players assume the role of Gideon Wyeth, a remnant of the last human outpost, on the brink of discovering the incredible powers that lay dormant within him. It is these powers the Seekers are so desperate to suppress. Developed by GlyphX Games, Advent Rising is a third-person, intergalactic action/adventure of truly epic proportions, akin to a fast-paced action movie where the player is swept up in an ever-evolving series of sequences and events. Built on Epic Games’ Unreal Warfare Engine, Advent Rising offers precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe. Advent Rising will be unveiled through exclusive screenings of a specially created game trailer at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, May 14-16, 2003. The official Advent Rising website is located at www.AdventTrilogy.com.
