Northamptonshire, UK Tues 6th January 2009
The hero of the piece, CID is thrust from the dull drudgery of his every day life into an exciting mission to rescue Mia. CID is a Crash Impact Dummy, one of millions created by the Professor B.M. Werken’s company to ensure that every product available on the market is safe for humankind. He diligently crashes, smashes, checks, re-checks and re-re-checks everything from lemonade to escalators. Like most of us at one point or another, CID thinks that there must more to life than just work. He’s happy enough to put up with it, but he can’t help thinking that there’s something... else.
CID is a young, funky Crash Impact Dummy. He’s knows he’s cool, he knows he’s street, he knows he’s widdit. He’s not really sure where he’s heading in life. He kinda knows he’s destined for bigger things, but he’s stuck in this damn job…. He’s got a quick sense of humour, and uses his wit as a defence.
About CID The Dummy
A star is born and he's made to last. CID THE DUMMY makes his debut in Oxygen Games’ first multi-platform production. It's an all-new action platformer that is sure to grab you with its enjoyable, fun gameplay, featuring a totally original character with charisma and moves, different fighting styles with which to battle enemies from unarmed combat to weapons like the Bazooka that can freeze, hit and burn.
• Interact as only a crash impact dummy can. Climb walls, swing on ropes, burn obstacles, destroy exploding barrels, use lifters, bounce on springs and with a neat head butt destroy walls all in stunningly realized environments. Game environment interaction is the most important part of the gameplay.
• CID's world is swarming with a host of fearfully fun enemies like the Dumper, Cursed Dummy and the bizarre Failed Experiment.
• Apart from fighting enemies, the player will enjoy solving puzzles, avoiding traps and using acrobatic skills to get out of dangerous situations!
CID The Dummy will be released on Wii™, Playstation®2, PSP®System, and PC.
