Microsoft and Relic Entertainment have officially announced that "Impossible Creatures" is the new product name for their upcoming real-time strategy PC game slated for release in 2002. Formerly dubbed "Sigma: The Adventures of Rex Chance," "Impossible Creatures" is a real-time strategy game based in the 1930s.

Weaving a tale of adventure and betrayal, "Impossible Creatures" transforms the familiar into extraordinary as players combine the traits of more than 50 different creatures -- using Sigma technology -- to create fantastic animal armies that will save the world from a dastardly plot.

With tens of thousands of animal combinations possible, players' strategic sensibilities, analytical abilities and creativity are tested as they seek to employ the ultimate gameplay strategies. Featuring approximately 15 missions, "Impossible Creatures" is set in a highly detailed, fully 3-D dynamic world alive with flora and fauna. Adventures take place on 12 distinct South Pacific islands.

Relic Entertainment Inc., a leading-edge developer of electronic entertainment software founded in 1997 and led by Alex Garden, is developing "Impossible Creatures." Relic's debut product, "Homeworld" launched in the fall of 1999 and has since been recognized dozens of times, including winning 1999's "Game of the Year" award from PC Gamer and 1999's "Strategy Game of the Year" from Computer Gaming World. Relic Entertainment currently has two new games under development and has gained a reputation as one of the best game development studios in the world.
