"Nitro Family is an addictive, pick-up-and-play action shooter," states Scott Zerby, Vice President of THQ's ValuSoft division. "Utilizing the Serious Sam engine, Nitro Family pushes gamers' trigger fingers to the limit with innovative gun play and a relentless barrage of enemies throughout stunning environments."

In Nitro Family, players take on the role of Victor Chopski, with Maria, his piggy-backing wife, watching his back with her turtle-neck whip. Through progressive cut scenes, the full 15 level storyline unfolds--players must avenge the kidnapping of the Chopski's son against a shady underground of drugs and corruption.

Armed with a unique dual-hand weapon system, players rack up kills against advancing hordes of 50 enemies and bosses suspending them in mid-air with a remorseless stream of bullets. For ultimate single player destruction, or via internet multiplayer game play through GameSpy, gamers can unleash a joyful barrage of gunfire in Euphoria mode, where the action moves in slow motion, but the revenge killin' intensifies.

"We have combined groundbreaking features and brilliant 3D worlds to create over-the top game play," states Bruce Kim, Lead Game Designer of Delphieye, developer of Nitro Family. "There's not another arcade-style game that gives hardcore gamers the hyper action they crave and casual gamers the addictive click-and-play fun they demand--all for only $19.99."

Nitro Family has utilized DivXNetworks, Inc.'s patent-pending DivX® video compression technology for high-quality in-game cinematics. DivX technology creates DVD-quality video at a fraction of the size of other video technologies, providing Nitro Family users with a true cinematic experience.
