by Rainier on Aug. 26, 2009 @ 6:29 a.m. PDT

Venetica is an action-RPG with an immersive storyline. Venetica mixes emotion and action in an intense and powerful setting. A unique and vibrant game world full of surprises, set in the beautifully rendered city of Venice during the 16th Century, awaits players in this captivating adventure game.

It is set in a fantastic 16th century Venice, where the player assumes the role of young Scarlett, daughter of Death himself. She must fight against a threat that could not be worse… A Necromancer has stolen the supernatural powers of Death and managed to become immortal. Only a hero with equal powers will be able to stop him and his henchmen. Scarlett must answer the call.

On a journey through Venice and other areas Scarlett battles against many creatures of evil. Combat was designed in a way that controls are easy to learn, but training, skill and tactics are indispensable to master the challenges. Players will have to watch their opponent’s actions closely. They will have to find the right timing for their attacks if they want to put an end to the evil brood. Simple hack & slay will not be effective in the Action RPG Venetica.

Venetica takes players to the here and now of its fantastic game world, making Scarlett explore Venice’s streets, canals, houses and even the roof tops. As the daughter of Death, she also has the ability to enter the Twilight World: the world of the dead. Here, she communicates with the dead and gets access to a number of unique gameplay elements. To achieve this, Scarlett needs to learn and train for special, supernatural skills and abilities – of which she initially doesn’t even know exist…

Venetica’s Twilight World offers even more to the players: It’s not only special NPCs and enemies that resurrect in the world of the Dead – also Scarlett herself uses the underworld to re-awake. This allows her to generate herself tactical combat advantage, for instance by repositioning herself unseen while staying in the Twilight World, and afterwards surprisingly returning to the world of the living.

Venetica is a cinematic Action RPG with an extraordinary and deep story, mixing s emotion and action in stunning ways. A unique and living world full of surprises is waiting for the player, set in fantastic 16th century Venice and paired with intuitive and easy to learn gameplay. As Cinematic RPG Venetica offers movie like cameras, subtly used cut scenes and spectacular images on a marvelous trip through a unique game world that is hard to match in the genre.
