DUSK-12 is a state of the art first person shooter, full of action for single and multiplayer and hyper-realistic graphics full of details.

THE HUNT

GENRE: First Person Shooter

In 2025, the criminality among the society reached levels not known before. The government approved an extreme measure to ensure peace and security for the society. Being a common citizen, there is a probability of one in a million of receiving the back mark... a device implanted in your body that emits a signal which can be followed. The main character is not a soldier or a well-trained hero. He is a normal person who receives the Black Mark and becomes the main star of The Hunt. He has to escape and learn to survive. This brand new FPS breaks the established rules of the genre. Now shooting won't be enough to survive…

THE SWARM

What we saw in the movies finally happened. Science-fiction became reality and everybody could see how huge spaceships landed over the main capitals of the world. Aliens attacked at once, killing millions of humans in mere seconds. The governments of the Earth answered to the attack with nuclear weaponry, in a desperate movement for destroying the aliens, at the cost of the planet itself… The Swarm is a 3D adventure game, full of action on 3rd view where the player will face the challenge of surviving in a wasted Moscow that shows the scars of the alien attack, defending himself from the attacks of other humans looking for a piece of food, and from the dangerous aliens.

SLEDGEHAMMER

GENRE: Action / Racing

The American highways are more dangerous than ever… it doesn’t matter if you drive a car, a bike or a truck, the chances of being shot, smashed, nailed and/or crushed are of 9 out of 10. Consequently, only the craziest or those with enough weapons dare to hit the road. Sledgehammer is a pure action game on wheels, and a festival of demolition and speed, all in one.
