Graffiti Entertainment Inc - a subsidiary of Signature Devices, Inc. (OTCPK: SDVI) - today announced that it has secured an exclusive distribution deal with Reef Entertainment to publish‘Rogue Trooper®: The Quartz Zone Massacre’ in North America. This Wii TM game has been developed by UK developer Rebellion.
Rogue Trooper® is a genetically engineered soldier of the future, and is unique in videogames as he has an distinct armoury; a rifle, helmet and backpack, which contain the‘personalities’ of his fallen comrades, providing him the capabilities of 4 soldiers in one. A‘biochip’ is installed within each‘Genetic Infantryman’ or‘GI’ from birth which then records their personalities and training upon their death. These biochips are then removed and can then be inserted within energized slots on a fellow GI’s rifle, helmet or backpack to secure them for their return to base and re-cloning.
Rogue Trooper®: The Quartz Zone Massacre is the story of how Rogue Trooper® and his comrades are betrayed by a traitor general on their first mission to an area on Nu Earth known as the Quartz Zone. Only Rogue survives, and joined by his fallen comrades within his equipment, he begins a journey across Nu Earth to find the general and unleash his revenge!
Rogue Trooper® is one of the 2000 AD’s most endearing characters. First appearing in 1981, he was created by Gerry Finlay-Day and Dave Gibbons of Watchmen fame and was intended to run only a few years, but fans continually demanded more adventures. Rogue Trooper® has also enjoyed many reincarnations as a videogame throughout the last 20 years, most recently as the critically acclaimed and BAFTA nominated 3rd person shooter on PS2, Xbox and PC.
The Wii version promises to provide even greater immersive gameplay with the unique Wii control interface where kill shots are more accurate. In addition, Rebellion has provided additional tweaks and polish to the overall game so ensuring the Wii version of the game is the very best yet.
Rogue Trooper®: The Quartz Zone Massacre will be released in Q4 2009.
