'Indigo Prophecy' (PS2/Xbox/PC) Goes Gold

by Rainier on Sept. 7, 2005 @ 7:04 a.m. PDT

A free-flowing game during which players can assume the role of multiple characters and experience the game from multiple viewpoints, Indigo Prophecy allows players' actions to affect the plot by offering a scenario driven interactive experience. Through motion picture techniques such as actor direction, multi-camera views, motion tracking and a contextual music score, players find themselves intimately immersed in the game.

Indigo Prophecy is developed by Quantic Dream, and will be available for the PlayStation2, the Xbox and PC in Europe on September 16 and in North America on September 20.

"Indigo Prophecy blurs the lines between video games and cinema and introduces a completely engrossing experience not yet offered by other games," said Marc Metis, Senior Vice President of Marketing for Atari, Inc.  "Indigo Prophecy's riveting storyline and innovative cause-and-effect gameplay should make it one of the sleeper hits of the year."

In Indigo Prophecy, New York City is stunned by a series of mysterious murders, all following the same pattern: ordinary people are killing absolute strangers in public areas.  Lucas Kane becomes another one of these murderers when he suddenly kills a stranger in a men's bathroom.  Covered in blood, Lucas regains consciousness with no recollection as to why he committed murder.  Hunted by police, Lucas must uncover the supernatural forces behind his crime before being incarcerated for life.

By encouraging players to assume the role of multiple characters and experience the game from multiple viewpoints, Indigo Prophecy allows players' actions to affect the plot by offering a scenario driven interactive experience, each and every decision made by the player will impact how the in-game story unfolds.  Through motion picture techniques such as actor direction, multi-camera views, motion tracking and a contextual music score, players find themselves intimately immersed in the game.

Developed by Quantic Dream and written by David Cage, Indigo Prophecy/Fahrenheit is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and will be available in Europe on September 16 and in North America on September 20.
