PARKVILLE, MD, June 29, 2004 – Enlight, a leading entertainment software developer and publisher, announced today that it will publish Scrapland, with executive producer and ground breaking game auteur American McGee. Developed by Mercury Steam, Scrapland is a deeply immersive 3rd person 3D action/adventure set in a bizarre robotic world made of scrap parts. Scrapland is scheduled for release in Q4 2004 for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and PC.
“We’re very excited to have American on board as Executive Producer of Scrapland,” said Trevor Chan, Chief Executive Officer of Enlight. “The robotic science fiction world that American is shaping with Mercury Steam is as original as it is exciting.”
As Executive Producer, McGee is injecting his unique creativity into the character development and dialogue of Scrapland, and elevating the gameplay into a true entertainment experience.
“I knew I wanted to be involved with this project the moment I met with Mercury Steam and saw the game,” said American Mcgee, Executive Producer for Scrapland. “Scrapland has an extremely unique free-form style of play that capitalizes on the success of games like GTA3, yet takes the action one step further.”
As D-Tritus, a robot assembled from junkyard parts, players will navigate the dangerous robot-inhabited city of Chimera on the remote, scrap-planet known as Scrapland. D-Tritus can engage his enemies on foot, in customizable gunships, or even take over other robots to make use of their unique abilities.
