Jowood's Far West & Conseal - Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 25, 2002 @ 6:14 a.m. PST

Serving up now are some random screens from Jowood's upcoming business sim "Far West" (expected release date June) and their tactical action adventure Conseal (expected later this summer). Build ranches, raise catle or shoot people .. Though decision ;)


Although she was trained to be a Navy S.E.A.L. Kitty is reluctant when it comes to using brute force. She sees herself as a pilot, and a very good one at that. Kitty's mission was to fly Major Jeffreys, a tough, experienced S.E.A.L., to a remote island in the Pacific Ocean. Out of the blue, Kitty's helicopter is shot down and crashes. As it seems, Kitty is the sole survivor. Initially, her only objectives are survival and to escape from the island. With her helicopter crashed, her friend Major Jeffreys presumably dead and her only weapon being a simple pistol she knows her only chance of survival lies in sneaking and outwitting her enemies. In the face of such an opposition fighting can only be a last resort. All action fans may look forward to this outstanding Tactical Action Adventure. Stay tuned for further news on Conseal.
