Codeco is proud to announce the development of their new online strategy game, "StarShift: The Zaran Legacy". StarShift: The Zaran Legacy will please strategy fans with its captivating atmosphere and its ease of use, which will provide an incredibly dynamic experience to players.
"We are very happy to announce StarShift. It is by far the most interesting project we've had the chance to work on", stated Stéphane Vaillancourt, CODECO founder and StarShift project director. "We are only beginning to get involved on the PC game market, but we are convinced that the public will be able to see the originality and depth of the concept behind StarShift. Being a small autonomous team rather than a multinational leaves us much freedom as for the contents of the game."

"As a matter of fact, almost everything is allowed in the game, from corrupting your enemies to being treacherous with your allies in order to assimilate their technology! StarShift is the kind of game which seems simple at first glance, but which offers a whole universe of possibilities to explore."

In StarShift, each player will lead a race caught in the middle of an intergalactic conflict. This conflict involves nine (9) different races which were brought together by the Zaran during their reign, and who now all want to conquer the biggest part of the galaxy, using whatever means they can (direct attacks, espionage, sabotage and more!).

In order to achieve their goal, players will have at their disposal over 30 different Technologies, 20 Special Ops, 5 Diplomatic Treaties and many unit types, buildings and sectors. They will also be able to trade money, Spy Points, military units and sectors with other players.

Moreover, players will be able to discuss strategy and tactics using instant messaging, chat room and discussion forums in order to learn new tricks and even to try bribing other players to win the game!

StarShift: The Zaran Legacy will be available in both English and French, at a price of approximately USD$30-$35. The game is currently slated for release in Q1 2003 for Windows® 98/ME/2000/NT/XP.

StarShift's original soundtrack composed and produced by PHEEK, rising star of the Montreal "Techno" scene; Animated sequences produced by Concept Studios.
