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.
Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he’s willing to admit. He’s written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion – in all its various incarnations – for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
