No it's not a game about the Canadian Reggae Rapper but rather a RTS based game based in the world of the criminal underworld. There aren't a lot of details in the press release but it's an interesting concept and something we'll have to check out at E3 next week.
2K Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced Snow, a real-time strategy game based on the greed driven world of a criminal empire. Scheduled for release in 2006, Snow is being developed for the XboxÂ® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PC by Take-Twoâ€™s Frog City Software studio.
â€œWith Snow, the team at Frog City has created a compelling fictional world of underground characters that translates perfectly into a real-time strategy game,â€ said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of Publishing for 2K Games. â€œSnowâ€™s gritty story follows the tradition of classic movie and television crime dramas and requires players to oversee every aspect of the criminal organization, all of which require calculated thinking in order to make your business prosper while at the same time keeping it safe from other rival kingpins. This will surely make for an intense, paranoid and most importantly, strategic gaming experience.â€
