The Farm 51’s FPS/puzzle/action adventure game, Deadfall Adventures, is due to explore your PCs on 27 September.
Deadfall Adventures looks like a bit of an odd one. Set in 1938, it casts players as James Quatermain – presumably the grandson of Allen – tasked with helping agent Jennifer Goodwin find the Heart of Atlantis before either the Nazis or the Russians. Man, Indy only had to deal with one of them at a time. What a lightweight.
Anyway: there’s a full single-player campaign (with both FPS blasting, puzzle-solving, and exploration) spanning everything from Egyptian temples and Guatemalan jungle to arctic wastes, in addition to “multiplayer battle arenas” and a just-announced “survival cooperation” mode. Considering The Farm 51 previously worked on NecroVisioN and Painkiller: Hell & Damnation, we’re pretty confident the FPS action will be rather intense. We’ll have to wait and see for the rest, but it’s inspired by classic summer blockbusters so – if done right – it should be an entertaining lark.
27 September, adventurers.
