A Kickstarter campaign
is now underway for Interstellar Marines: Prologue
, the stage setting prelude to Interstellar Marines
, a first person shooter developed by Zero Point Software
. If funded, Prologue is slated for a December 2013 release.
The game is set in a near future where mankind has begun colonizing interstellar space and must prepare for a potential encounter with another sentient species. The player will assume the role of a candidate soldier for the Interstellar Marines program, training for enlistment within a secret facility hidden deep beneath the salty expanse of Groom Lake, Nevada.
The training exercises in Prologue cover a wide spectrum of action, from detailed shooting ranges, to artificially-staged hostage situations, and tactical first contact scenarios designed for both cooperative and competitive efforts. All combat and environmental conditions are manipulated in real-time by the all-encompassing AI SARA – voiced by the legendary Terri Brosius (SHODAN in System Shock 2).
