Deadline Games A/S, the Denmark-based independent game studio, announced the development of Faith and a .45, an original title for next-gen platforms. An intense and atmospheric shooter, Faith and a .45 features a heavy focus on characters, co-operative gameplay, road movie storytelling, and cinematic aesthetics.
Faith and a .45 tells the story of Luke and Ruby -- two outlaw lovers destined to go down in history. The duo battles an oppressive enemy force, led by a ruthless, corrupt oilman who's out for their blood. Set in an original take on the Great Depression, one of the darkest periods in US history, the game is a gritty, cross-country epic -- a road journey with guns, a dark army of steel-plated vehicles, and armour-clad pyromaniacs.
"Since we at Deadline have our roots in movie production, we value original stories, settings and characters very highly," said CEO Chris Mottes. "Our previous games are testament to this, but we believe Faith is going to take our creative might to a whole new level."
Deadline Games will be presenting the game by invitation only to selected publishers at the 2008 Game Developers Conference on February 18-22.
