Gamer's Gate Gets Frictional with Penumbra: Overture

Company: Gamer's Gate
Product: Frictional Games' Penumbra: Overture

Digital community platform Gamer's Gate, announced today that it has signed a new exciting title by Swedish developer Frictional Games. First out in a series of games, "Penumbra: Overture" is guaranteed to keep players on edge as they explore its scary and immersive environment.

Played from a first person viewpoint, Penumbra: Overture's captivating story line introduces challenging mind puzzles in a detailed world where secrets are uncovered.

The 3D engine utilises cutting edge technology as well as an advanced physics system, where the mouse replicates natural movements to create a highly interactive and life-like game world. The same technique is applied to the weapon system, where the mouse serves to give players an increased realistic feel of combat.

In Penumbra: Overture, however, fighting enemies is not something best done with brute force; In most situations, fighting is a last resort and the player is often better using his/her wits. The enemy A.I. will also do its best to hunt and scare the player. Horrific creatures encountered can break down doors, use group co-ordination, interact with the physics and much more.

Penumbra: Overture will be released in the end of March and will retail for 19.99/$19.99.
