Former Irrational/Harmonix/Iron Lore Members Announce DREADLINE!

5/14/2012 - Boston, MA.

For Ultra-Immediate Release.

Have you ever had the urge to control a team of monsters and lay waste to frail humans, but you were unclear of the moral implications? Well, Eerie Canal Entertainment has come up with a solution for you.

Introducing DREADLINE, a fast paced action RPG/RTS hybrid where you control a team of monsters, equipped with a time machine, who visit human calamities to kill those who are already doomed to die.(Think of a Diablo/Freedom Force mashup, but faster and with more blood!)

View the DREADLINE teaser here: https://vimeo.com/42122869.

Game features:

·         Single player control of a bloodthirsty monster squad

·         A large number of unlockable characters, each with their own special skills

·         An entirely new game engine, codenamed “shoe_gazer”, written specifically to bring lead artist Steven Kimura's drawings to life.

·         10+ unique levels representing human calamities such as The Titanic, Pompeii, and Mall Zombie Apocalypse?

·         A minimum of space marines, unless you visit a space marine calamity

DREADLINE will be released for PC in Q1 2013.
