Well, that's certainly different. That's my initial reaction to the announcement of Heaven vs. Hell
from TKO software. It's a real time strategy where you command the forces of heaven and hell to determine the fate of humanity. You get to control angels (unfortunately not the ones Victoria Secret...), demons, and mortals in the game. The plot of the game has humanity reaching a new level of technology and starting to meddle in God's natural design. God's not quite cool with this so it's time to break out the arks and cleanse the Earth and start over again. Sounds like a cool premise and something that I'm now looking forward to checking out at E3.
TKO REVEALS HEAVEN VS HELL
Real Time Strategy Game Brings Angelic, Demonic and Mortal Forces to the PC
Addison, Texas -- April 25, 2005 -- TKO's Heaven VS Hell, the next generation of real-time strategy (RTS) PC gaming, will put players in command of angelic, demonic and mortal forces battling to determine the fate of humanity.
In the mid-25th century, human technology has become so advanced that they have learned to manipulate the natural order of the universe and begin meddling in God's design. Not since Satan challenged God for the throne of Heaven, has there been such sheer defiance of his will. Humanity's arrogance infuriates God, so he plans to cleanse the Earth of mankind and start anew. With the sound of a trumpet, the seal is broken and Heavenly forces descend upon the Earth. The Devil, fearing his own loss of power wages Armageddon, the war to end all wars, for the remaining souls of men.
Players control one of three factions: Heaven, Hell or Humans, each with their own distinct units, abilities and instruments of war. Their goal is to destroy their enemies by amassing an army and sending them into a holy/unholy war.
The game is built around the concept of resource and force management, as well as battlefield strategy, all packaged neatly within a fully featured game including a riveting story, beautiful 3D graphics and breathtaking sound effects.
Heaven VS Hell is scheduled for release in 2006.
TKO will hold the first public showing of Heaven VS Hell during E3 2005 in Kentia Hall booth #7159.
