One of my E3 disappointments was the very limited coverage of the Euro and Eastern European PC titles. 1C has pretty crazy lineup in particular.
Death to Spies - Metal Gear Solid/Hitman. You play a Smersh agent infilrating German lines to blow things up and carry out assassinations. You can borrow enemy uniforms as long as you didn’t bloody them up. Uses a suspicion mechanic much like Hitmans. One of the cool details is the possibility to trap just about any object including dead bodies. Gamespot Preview
* Powerful game engine capable of modeling whole planetary systems. The engine allows continuous flights from space into the atmosphere of a planet and landing on any part of the planet
* Adjustable settings – from a hardcore space sim to a near arcade game
* Dozens of NPCs and locations
* Different types of spacecrafts – from fighters to ferry ships
Theater of War - The WW2 RTS title they’ve been working on for ages. Uses the engine Maddox Games developed for Il-2. It looks something like the Close Combat series in 3D where units have a fair bit of autonomy. Five campaigns including Polish and French. Gamespot Preview
They also have five RPGs, three TBS titles, one Total War Clone, two FPS, and a number of RTS games in this years lineup.
I was utterly dissapointed in the lack of coverage of Oleg’s upcoming BoB sim. Christ the only screenshots I’ve seen are at SimHQ and they’re just cockpit shots and one cloud shot - no pics of terrain or cities. WTF?
Apparently the developers are a 2D/3D Commerical Design Studio and this is their first try at Game development. They began the project in 2004 writing their own engine for it. Its based on a popular scifi trilogy.
