'Inhabited Island' - 9 New Screens

by Rainier on March 29, 2006 @ 10:01 a.m. PST

In less than a year the world of Strugatsky brothers' bestseller "Inhabited Island" will shake the gaming community in explosive turn-based strategy by Wargaming.net and Akella.

Khonties, Barbarians and the Island Empire, being all unyielding enemies, will get involved in fierce warfare set to destroy the entire race of the Land of Fathers. Each race will possess and develop easily distinguishable technologies. Therefore, heavy armored, transport, and aviation units, each of absolutely different construction will be present on the battlefield. The battles will take place among 3D vivid extraterrestrial landscapes, with day and night change and dynamic weather conditions will affect the gameplay. A haze of exhausted gases poise over steel battle machines; the ground gets blasted by tracks of tanks and other heavy vehicles; artillery fire scratches, burns and breaches heavily armored units. The game will offer tremendous strategic depth featuring fog of war, troop-carrying vehicles, return fire, laying mines, camouflage and tons of other strategic and tactical techniques.

Game features include:

  • Immersive storyline based on "Inhabited Island" (aka "Prisoner of Power") by the Strugatsky brothers
  • 4 totally unique races: Land of the Fathers, Khonties, Barbarians and Island Empire
  • Realistic battle system (camouflage, fog of war, return fire, mine laying, fortifications, land and air troop carriers)
  • Advanced technology tree and unit upgrade system
  • Realistic full 3D environment with day/night change and weather effects
  • Cinematic Camera mode showing the most dramatic moments
