Cockpit, Austin, Texas â€“ July 9, 2007 â€“ Spark Unlimited today announced that Gamecock Media Group will publish their new gaming intellectual property, Legendary: The Box. Set to release in Spring 2008 on PC and next-generation platforms, Legendary: The Box presents a world suddenly thrust into chaos and turmoil when ancient creatures of myth are unleashed into modern day society.
â€œLike most developers, weâ€™ve always had a dream game that weâ€™ve secretly been working on,â€ said Craig Allen, CEO of Spark Unlimited. â€œWeâ€™ve made a name for ourselves with World War II first-person shooters, but Legendary: The Box is our labor of love. Itâ€™s a thrill to work with Gamecock; they want to see the game completed exactly as we envision it.â€
â€œIf there is one genre that needs a shot in the arm, itâ€™s the first-person shooter,â€ said Harry Miller, Head of Development of Gamecock Media Group. â€œSparkâ€™s Legendary: The Box is going to be a classic, in terms of story, game-play and technology. Iâ€™m inspired by where theyâ€™re taking the genre.â€
Legendary: The Box tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandoraâ€™s Box. When he opens the box, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional â€“ such as werewolves and gryphons â€“ into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckardâ€™s unwittingly become the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures of the box.
