Uprising44: The Silent Shadows launches on Steam tomorrow!

1048prising-44-the-silent-shadows-white-background

Greenlight Community has officially announced that Uprising44: The Silent Shadows is releasing on Steam tomorrow, the 18th! In accordance to release they are publishing new screenshoots pack.

The game combines third-person action play with real-time strategy. It is a interesting combo of the two modes of play, and has an in-depth and fascinating story-line which is not used in WWII computer games – the greatest civilian uprising against Nazi occupying forces – the Warsaw Uprising. A tale of the Silent Shadows – forerunners of modern day special forces – paratroopers dropped behind enemy lines to organize resistance and use diversionary tactics in the fight against the forces of the Third Reich. An appropriate audio-visual setting combined with cover system (an awesome, proven method of game play), the story-line, and diverse settings, a dynamic and fun game for anyone who wants to be entertained.

Alien: Isolation ‘Lo-fi Sci-fi’ Trailer


“This isn’t a world of holograms and touchscreens; there’s no sense here that technology is going to save you.” – Alistair Hope, Creative Lead.

To stay faithful to the original source, Alien: Isolation™ takes a retro look to the future with a design aesthetic which developer Creative Assembly describes as lo-fi sci-fi. It’s clunky, it’s chunky, it’s push-button and analogue. There are no phasers or lasers, and the smartest weapons you find may be tied together with duct tape and string. A world very much of CRT not LCD, Alien: Isolation may be set in the future but it’s very much baked in the past.
