After playing History Channel’s Civil War shooter, I found out that someone else was aiming to make another game based on “the War Between the States” but with a twist. An outfit called Blue Omega Entertainment is making a game based on the Civil War, only in this version, the war never ended when it was supposed to and had extended into the 20th century. Rourke, an arms dealer, is equipping an army of mercenaries to continue fueling the war from behind the facade of a massive, post-industrial corporate empire that threatens to swallow both sides. Fighting against him and his advanced weaponry are rebels that have managed to remain alive long enough to keep Rourke from achieving his goals. That’s where the player comes in.
From what I’ve been able to gather, the game is reasonably open to approaching each level in a variety of ways, some of them vertically hundreds of feet above the ground, while throwing plenty of steampunkish action in your face. It looks good, save for a few characters that are obviously pandering to the lonely male teenage demographic, but I’ll probably find myself playing this one when it comes out if only to see stuff blow up real nice.
