Deadfall Adventures est un jeu d'action-aventures et un FPS dans lequel le joueur incarne un aventurier - le petit fils d'Allan Quatermain (la série aurait servie de base à Spielberg / George Lucas pour le film Indiana Jones). Nous sommes en 1936, et il n'est pas très enthousiaste à l'idée d'escorter Jennifer Goodwin - un agent américain et ancienne collègue, dans un complexe de temple égyptien, pour tenter de trouver un artefact dénommé "Le Coeur d'Atlantis".

Deadfall Adventures est un FPS axé sur l'action, rehaussé d'éléments de jeux d'action-aventure. Le but principal du jeu est de donner au joueur la possibilité de devenir un aventurier, de partir dans une chasse aux trésors, d'explorer des régions inconnues du monde et de sauver la demoiselle en détresse des griffes d'ennemis à la fois terrestres et non-terrestres.

Deadfall Adventures est le premier jeu dans une perspective à la première personne explorant le genre des mondes perdus et le genre Action-Aventure, popularisé par les romans (tel que la série des romans Quatermain de H. R. Haggard), et les magazines bon marchés et bien sûr divers films et jeux.

Description [en]

Deadfall Adventures is an action-driven first-person shooter, spiced up with elements from action-adventure games. The main goal of the game is to give the player the opportunity to become an adventurer, hunt for treasures, explore unknown regions of the world and rescue the damsel in distress from the clutches of enemies, both earthly and not-so-earthly.

Deadfall Adventures is the first game in a first-person perspective that explores the Lost World and Action-Adventure genre, which was popularized through novels (like the Quatermain-novels by H. R. Haggard), pulp magazines and of course various films and games.


Adventurer’s Equipment

In addition to a variation of weapons, the player acquires various pieces of permanent equipment over the course of the game.

This includes:

• A compass that helps the player find hidden treasures
• A flashlight that can be used to solve puzzles and to “persuade” certain enemy types
• A notebook that holds helpful hints about traps and puzzles
• A knife for close-combat slicing & dicing
• Notes and maps that can be found throughout the levels, to help the player navigate through them

Treasures, Traps & Puzzles

As most adventurers, James Lee Quatermain likes to collect treasures, particularly if they’re made of gold. But the gold from the temples that he encounters in Deadfall Adventures is special, it also upgrades his stats like health, stamina etc. (for reasons you will find out over the course of the story).

The treasures are optional, the player doesn’t have to collect them, but is encouraged to try and find them and overcome the traps that usually protect them. Traps in the game include among others: spikes, fire traps, falling rocks, trapdoors, exploding gas, blades, pendulum blades and urns full of deadly insects. Some traps are mere obstacles for the player, others can be triggered by shooting at them, thus making them an extension of the arsenal of the player. ‘Cause why waste bullets, when you can shower your enemies with spikes or rocks.

Story Overview

The year is 1938. James Lee Quatermain, great-grandson of the world-famous adventurer Allan Quatermain, is a man of many talents, yet holding on to money isn’t one of them. Quatermain isn’t all too keen on escorting Jennifer Goodwin, a US agent and former colleague of his, to an Egyptian temple complex in order to retrieve an ancient artifact - The Heart of Atlantis. Neither does he believe in the reputed invigorating qualities of this artifact, nor does he care that a division of the Ahnenerbe, the Nazi department specialized in the occult, is after The Heart as well.

But life has its ways of changing one’s perspective. Quatermain soon finds himself part of a hunt across the globe - from the stormy deserts of Egypt to the icy depths of the Arctic and all the way to the steaming jungles of Guatemala.

In the long-forgotten temple complex, the thrill of the chase awakens the true adventurer in Quatermain, as he and Agent Goodwin strive to be one step ahead of the Nazis and the Russians, one step closer to obtaining the Heart of Atlantis. And deep in these temples, where age-old guardians awake from their eternal slumber, James soon learns that his great-grandfather’s stories are not as crazy as he had always believed. For all things live forever, though at times they sleep and are forgotten.
