Publisher Strategy First Inc. and developer Cinemax Ltd. announced today that their classic action-adventure game, Necromania: Traps of Darkness has shipped to retail stores nationwide.

“No good guys need apply,” claims Jay Podilchuk, the producer at Strategy First. “An all evil line up of anti-heros makes this arcade-style dungeon fest a great way to express one’s darker side without winding up on court-TV,” says Podilchuk.

“Working for the darkload to wreak havoc on all of mankind is definitely a change of perception, and makes this game fun and exciting, especially when you’re sick of playing the good guy,” says Steve Milburn, Marketing Director at Strategy First.

About Necromania: Traps of Darkness
Your master Ragnar has been imprisoned by the forces of good in an effort to reclaim Necromania.
