FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Headup Games announces Hack'n'Slash in a unique science fiction setting

Dueren, June 30th 2009 – Headup Games, a recently founded and independently financed publishing company for core PC titles located near Cologne in Germany is proud to announce its main project for this year to be GREED, a merciless hack'n'slash action-RPG. GREED is scheduled for release in November 2009.

GREED features all ingredients to create an enthralling hack'n'slash classic. In the tradition of other critically acclaimed and proven genre colleagues you as the player will need to fight your way through masses of critters, robots, aliens and many other exotic adversaries while collecting unique items and skills thus leveling up your character. In contrast to the genre ancestors, the story of GREED takes place in an adult and mature science fiction scenario. In the futuristic universe of GREED the discovery of novel interstellar travel possibilities has lead to a new age of colonialization. The five largest colonial powers are entangled in a full-scale war over a new element called Ikarium, the recently discovered rare source of nearly unlimited energy. You as a former member of an elite military unit will fight a battle for your survival not know-ing that your actions will lead fate of all mankind into dramatic consequences…

GREED takes your character, chosen out of three completely different classes, through manifold levels and environments, all playable in three increasing difficulty levels putting even the toughest endgame player to a test – but as always, more pain con-tains more gain! Embedded in various scenarios, GREED throws waves of deadly foes in your way as well as screen filling end bosses. But don’t despair! Helpful innovation can be found in numerous innovative features such as the unique dodge move, self-charging shields or destructible environments. The combination of the different character-specific skills and abilities in three categories gives you the diversity needed to conquer even the toughest foes. And if you need a little more support, GREED also features a cooperative multiplayer mode where you and your friends can show the universe what you are made of!

Features
• Hack’n’Slash in a dark science fiction setting
• A huge variety of different levels in three settings, each playable on three dif-ficulties, inhabited by fierce and deadly creatures and screen-filling end bosses
