|In this Russian developed FPS, a planet-wide epidemic caused by an extraterrestrial
virus totally changed all women of the planet of Velian. Their bodies
transformed to become parts of collective intelligence, presumably controlled
by some non-humanoid creatures. The Velian men proved to be resistant
to the virus, but they lost their status of free intelligent beings
and only existed as suppliers of biomaterial for further gene experimentation
and as parts of complex biomechanical systems. The society became now
a kind of matriarchal hive. The Galactic Federation lost several dozens
of transports due to enemy attacks in the second half of the 24th century.
A deep analysis of the situation made it clear that the aggressor comes
from the Velian star system. It is there that the Federation is sending
an expeditionary corps to destroy the hostile civilization that threatens
the very existence of the human race and to investigate the fate of
the missing colonists. You are a trooper of the government army sent
with the expeditionary force to attack Velian. As you accomplish missions
given to you at the headquarters, you get new opportunities in selection
of weapons and military equipment. Each mission will also get you closer
to the secret of the origin of the Velian anomaly of the human race.
The hero can use several types of the armored space suit for short-time
flights with diverse attached implements. There are 16 types of fantastic
deadly weapons, 18 intensive levels, and the games uses rag doll technology
and a true damage system (location of the hit affects the damage type).
It seems as though the game was rush-released in an unfinished state.
Unbelievably, it had NO IN-GAME MUSIC (the only track being the catchy main
menu theme). The in-game sounds were incomplete, used incorrectly and varied
wildly in volume. Plus the English text was poorly translated and often made
no sense at all. A huge fan-made patch added: a complete in-game soundtrack
(22 new pieces of music), re-balanced and new sound FX (volumes have been
corrected and new sounds added, including weapons), completely re-written
in-game script and objective messages, newly recorded voices for cutscenes,
and numerous tweaks/fixes for various issues.
