Montreal, Canada. February 2, 2006 â€“ Game publisher Meridian4 and developer Frozenbyte are excited to announce the official release of the North American, English demo for their Action/Shooter; Shadowgrounds.
â€œThis demo gives players a taste of what Shadowgrounds is all about. The demo lets players feel the high-octane action and to test out some of the weapons and upgrades found within the game.â€ said Steve Milburn, Marketing Director at Meridian4, â€œWe know that once gamers get a taste of Shadowgrounds, theyâ€™ll be back for more.â€
About the Demo
The demo features the first two levels of the game. It includes several different weapons and upgrades including the iZ8 Minigun, the crowd pleasing (and dispersing) WM6 Grenade Launcher and of course, the fan favourite; the WP650 "B.R.N." Flamer. (For those of you who like your meat well done!)
Level 1 â€“ â€˜Power Plantâ€™ has you looking into what seems to be a routine power outage. You and two members of your team investigate the power plant. While you fix the problem, your friends mysteriously disappear, they canâ€™t be hailed over the radio and then all hell breaks loose!
Level 2 â€“ â€˜Water Treatment Facilityâ€™ has Corporal Jane Arwyn trapped and in danger. You must get yourself safely into the facility, rescue Jane and get out alive. Did we mention the hordes of aliens and a level boss the size of a semi?
Take on the role of Tyler, an ex-security expert, now working as a mechanic in the outskirts of the space colony on Jupiterâ€™s moon; Ganymede. What you thought was going to be just another cold, dark and boring day turns into a battle for your and the colonyâ€™s survival.
Shadowgrounds is an epic sci-fi game that blends addictive old school gameplay and modern technology into one big, nasty alien-battling carnage festival. The game is played from a top-down perspective that gives gamers a better view of the battlefield and allows tactical use of weapons - new tactics become useful as the arsenal is upgraded to even more destructive weapons.
2-4 PLAYER CO-OP MULTIPLAYER! - 2-4 players can play the co-operative mode on the same computer to maximize the destruction.
