Leonard Harding, UK sales manager, City Interactive, says; “We aimed to hit the UK retail quickly, and in the space of a couple of months, that is just what we have achieved. Our first three titles are already taking re-orders, and now we have another six titles joining them this month offering gamers a nice mix of genres to choose from, and at prices where they won’t be stuck for choice.”
Affirming its commitment to offering great games for everyone, CI launches Beauty Factory, a fun strategy game for girls. Players become the CEO of a beauty products company and find out how to research, develop ingredients for cosmetics and scent composition for perfumes. Once in production, players will need to look at packaging and design, product positioning and promotion, sale of the product and explore their options on how to expand the market potential of the company! With the help of a user-friendly tutorial and intuitive game play what more could a girl want than a Beauty Factory of her own?
Next up from the Premiere Silver collection is Overspeed, a racing game that takes player to the streets of LA, the birthplace of illegal street racing where they can take on the legendary drivers of the fastest and most showy cars on the underground circuit hierarchy. Player can disassemble, repair, and upgrade their vehicle part by part as they improve their racing techniques, and if they feel up to the challenge, can also get online and race head-to-head with players around the world
First of the three shooters launching this month is Code of Honor: The French Foreign Legion. Enter Senior Corporal Claude Boulet, a 26 year old Parisian who will lead players into the hellish African savanna where a revolution inspired by the African Revolutionary Group is threatening to spiral out of control with the news that the rebels have what is needed to make ‘dirty bombs’. Players join the game as a new member to the Legion, taking on the role of a volunteer serving France with honour and knowing that a mission, once given, becomes sacred and must be carried out to the end, and at any cost.
City’s popular shooter series Terrorist Takedown continues with Conflict in Mogadishu where players once again join their fellow squaddies on another terrorist takedown operation.
