In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

Advent Rising Screenshots



Publisher: Majesco Games
Developer: GlyphX Games
Platforms: Xbox, PC
Genre: 3rd person, action/adventure
Release Date: 2004

Overview:

Advent Rising is the first in an epic trilogy of action/adventure games, presented in a stunning cinematic format to deliver an unprecedented variety of game play experiences. Built on the Unreal Warfare engine, it offers precise, refined play-dynamics with action-packed adventure and style, wrapped in a visually imaginative universe. Advent is akin to a fast-paced action movie where the player is swept up in a continuously evolving series of sequences and events.

Working with award-winning science fiction author Orson Scott Card, GlyphX Games has created a gripping storyline that will thrust gamers and readers alike into an incredible intergalactic saga. In Advent Rising, players make decisions that effect not only what they experience in the first game, but the entire Advent trilogy.

Storyline:

In Advent Rising, a common legend pervades the galaxy—that of a powerful, highly intelligent ancient race that will one day deliver the universe. They are known simply as Humans.

Some claim them to be the messiah, believing they will one day come to deliver the universe into harmony. Some simply see them as a symbol for eternal hope. Others see them as purely fantastical creatures existing only in the imaginations and storybooks of the young.

The Seekers, however, know that Humans truly do exist and see them as an enemy that must be destroyed. Under the guise of benevolent explorers they comb the universe and eradicate any Human colonies they find. Until now.  

This year, gamers find out what it means to be truly Human.
