Along with innovative high-tech stealth/robbery game actions and events, STOLEN also boasts some truly amazing technical and presentational features to give it a spectacular look that will captivate gamers.
STOLEN will compete against some of the recent and soon to be released ‘stealth’ genre titles, many of which have been some of the biggest hits and emerging brands of 2003.
STOLEN, being developed by premier developer Blue 52, has already been two and a half years in the making. The team deem they are reaching an unprecedented level of excellence with a specific focus on high quality rendering technology, including advance shadowing and lighting techniques, character animations and high-tech gadgets and weaponry.
“Blue 52 has impressed us not only by its amazing technology but also by its ambition and talent in reinventing the genre”, said Hip Interactive’s Graeme Boxall. “It is so rare these days to see a game that appeals to you immediately, well we have found it.”
“Having worked with passion on Stolen for more than two years, we wanted to find the best home for it”, commented Blue 52’s Managing Director, Jason Perkins. “We have definitely found it in Hip Interactive, not only will they ensure the necessary publishing focus, they will also offer a genuine worldwide distribution through their North-American and European set-ups.”
Hip Interactive owns all rights to the game and the property, seeing it as a long-term intellectual property which should be followed by sequels.
Hip Interactive confirms its growing portfolio of upcoming multi-format releases which already include Garfield, Digital Extremes’ Pariah and CT Special Forces: Fire For Effect.
