Nordic Games and The Farm 51, the publisher and studio behind Painkiller Hell & Damnation, have announced a new first-person adventure coming to PC and Xbox 360 on July 30. Titled Deadfall Adventures, the game is set in 1938 and has you racing against Nazis to obtain the Heart of Atlantis.
You'll be put in the shoes of James Lee Quatermain, escorting US agent Jennifer Goodwin to an Egyptian temple to retrieve the artifact. But the Nazi division Ahnenerbe, in charge of occult studies, is after it too. The globe-trotter finds temples across the globe in locales like the Arctic and Guatemala on his quest. As you might imagine, this involves taking down some Nazis, but the game throws in its share of puzzle-solving and exploration as well.
You might have noticed this sounds like an adventure movie in the realm of Indiana Jones, and that similarity isn't lost on the developers. "Deadfall Adventures marries the ethos of the Saturday morning matinee with the Summer blockbuster to create an original adventure which will grip players from start to finish," says Nordic managing director Klemens Kreuzer, in the announcement. "We're putting players into the heart of the action, just as they’d dreamed as children, staring at their heroes on the silver screen. It's fantastic to be working on Deadfall Adventures with The Farm 51 from the roots up; it’s going to be an exciting summer."
