Nival Interactive proudly announces Hammer & Sickle, a new tactical role playing game set in the Silent Storm universe. The game is being co-developed by Novik&Co and Nival Interactive.
Set in the British-American sector of occupied Germany in the spring of 1949, you are a Soviet undercover agent who finds himself caught in the middle of an escalating confrontation between the intelligence services of the world's superpowers. You'll have to make your way through a web of cunning intrigues, setting off chain reactions that will affect the fate of the world: will it live in peace, or collapse into the chaos of World War 3?
A unique mix of turn-based and role-play, Hammer & Sickle is a brand-new gaming experience. The dizzying array of tactical solutions for each situation is greatly deepened by the fully destructible environments - while an open mission structure and the non-linear story put you in complete control of the game world.
Â° Spy Story: Non-linear thriller lets you affect not only the outcome, but the whole course of the game
Â° Real People: Character's histories and personalities affect game events and your team's cooperation
Â° One World: You can move back and forth though all zones freely - events taking place in one zone can affect developments in others
Â° Saving Time: like in life, time is the most important and irreplaceable resource. The passage of time significantly affects game events
Â° Fashion Statement: What you wear can sometimes have a bigger affect on how people react to you then what you say
Â° How Am I Spying?: Clashes with the authorities or violence against civilians will be counted on a meter, push it too hard and you'll set off WWIII
Â° Gift of Gab: Your choice of line or even tone of voice could radically change the balance of forces and relations between characters
Â° Always Carry Cash: Buy weapons, hire soldiers, get information - even bribe the local criminal syndicate or police to get out of trouble
Â° Choose Your Weapon: With over 90 authentic WWII and post war models, you can choose the right gun for the right job
