Description [fr]

Un RPG tactique au tour par tour sur un thème de science fiction, par le studio Metropolis Software (acquise par CD Projekt RED), portage Linux par le studio Hyperion Entertainment (mais plus disponible), publié par le studio Topware Interactive (en version Windows via wine).

Gorky17 est un RPG tactique au tour par tour dans lequel le joueur incarne le soldat Cole Sullivan, à la tête d'une escouade, essayant de résoudre le mystère de l'apparition soudaine de créatures hybrides.



Wikipedia:

Gorky 17 est un jeu vidéo de stratégie au tour par tour (ou Tactical RPG) développé par le studio polonais Metropolis Software et édité par Monolith Productions. Il est sorti sous Windows en 1999, puis sur Macintosh en 2002. Le jeu a ensuite été porté sous Linux par Hyperion Entertainment et édité par Linux Game Publishing en 2006. Initialement prévu en 2006, conjointement avec la version Linux, Hyperion Entertainment porte le jeu sur AmigaOS 4 en 2015.

Gorky 17 a connu une préquelle titrée Gorky Zero: Beyond Honor et sortie en 2003, puis une suite portant titrée Aurora Watching en 2005.

Histoire

Le joueur commande un petit groupe de soldats de l'OTAN qui doit résoudre un mystère concernant l'apparition de créatures hybrides dans le village polonais de Lubin. La ville est terrorisée, la zone est alors couverte par les troupes de l'OTAN et les médias du monde entier, alors que la première excursion a disparu sans laisser de traces. Le héros de l'histoire est un soldat quadragénaire nommé Cole Sullivan, un homme appartenant à un commando et doué d'importantes connaissances scientifiques. La tâche donnée à son équipe est d'expliquer la présences des hybrides et de trouver les membres disparus du Groupe Un.

Système de jeu

Gorky 17 est un jeu de stratégie au tour par tour avec des éléments de tactical RPG et de Survival horror. Son gameplay est inspiré par les jeux de rôle tactiques sur console tel que Vandal Hearts, bien que le scénario et le style des personnages soient plus proche de la série des Resident Evil.

Le jeu inclut deux modes :

• Un mode exploration en temps réel: où le joueur contrôle ses personnages à l'aide de la souris afin de les déplacer au travers de la ville ainsi que les faire interagir avec divers objets du décor. L'un des objectifs qui reste une constante tout au long du jeu est la recherche de coffres qui sont dispersés dans le décor, dans lesquels on trouve les items pour survivre ou progresser : armes, munitions, soins et objets spéciaux.

• Un mode combat en tour par tour: qui se met en route lorsque le joueur passe dans certaine zone prédéfinie (il n'y pas de zones aléatoires de combat comme dans de nombreux autres jeux de rôle). Dans ce mode, l'écran est divisé par un quadrillage et l'ordinateur contrôle les adversaires. Dans chaque tour, chacun des personnages se déplace d'un certain nombre de carrés et peut utiliser une arme ou décider de ne rien faire. Les armes ont des effets tactiques différents (par exemple, le pistolet ne peut être utilisé que dans une direction toute droite, tandis que le fusil peut tirer en diagonale). Le jeu s'arrête si l'un des personnages du joueur meurt.

Du point de vue de la représentation graphique, les personnages et les ennemis sont animés en 3D alors que les décors sont des images fixes très détaillées. Certaines attaques bénéficient d'un effet de zoom. Le jeu comporte un certain nombre d'armes et d'items différents : hache, revolver, fusil, grenade, lance-flamme, etc.

Les ennemis sont, la plupart du temps, des créatures hybrides entre l'homme et l'animal. Les statuts anormaux (poison, sommeil, etc.) sont présents comme dans beaucoup de Tactical RPG classiques. De plus, le jeu est ponctué par un certain nombre de scènes cinématiques.

Description [en]

The main hero in Gorky 17 is Cole Sullivan, a fascinatingly complex character. Play for a while and you’ll feel yourself taking on his traits and sharing his emotions, above all his very personal feelings towards the other characters and their environment. How did we achieve this? Simple ... by combining the pure excitement of battle with the element of surprise and exploration found in adventures.

In addition to fighting Turn-Based battles against realistic monsters, you can also shoot off locks, pick up newspapers, converse with other characters and even solve some tricky puzzles! This, in a nutshell, is the concept behind Gorky 17 – combine the best of the genres to create the best game possible. Here’s a little nibble ... you’re engaged in a heavy battle against a deformed hybrid. He’s getting the upper hand, but is down to his last shot. Suddenly he starts begging for his life, pleading with you to show mercy. He offers to reveal the location of a rebel ammunition dump down in the sewers – he even gives you the key! You agree and follow him. But ... it’s a trap! Suddenly four giant monsters attack from all sides. Tricky eh?

The year is 2008. NATO intelligence reports that, for some unknown reason, the Russian army has destroyed one of its so-called "secret cities" known by the code word 'Gorky 17'. This exact replica of an American city was used to train the best Russian spies during the Cold War. "The city’s been deserted since the collapse of the Iron Curtain", comes the reassuring answer from the Kremlin, "now that we are friends, we no longer need such monuments to mistrust". But NATO commanders aren’t buying this PR exercise – they know that Gorky 17 had another, far more important purpose. This was where the Soviet Union conducted its most secret military experiments.

The following year, as the first step toward Poland’s integration into NATO, a contingent of multi-national troops enters the ruined city. Poking through the rubble, some scouts discover an old laboratory complex. Further investigations reveal little, so the soldiers proceed downtown, through seemingly empty streets.

But... strange things start happening! Suddenly, they find themselves surrounded by hideously deformed creatures – parts of their bodies look human, while other parts resemble a horrifying mixture of animal and insect. Something went terribly awry here.

Despite the best efforts of NATO officials, word spreads of the discovery, as reporters fly in from all over the globe to witness the ultimate freak show. CNN soon announces plans to broadcast live via satellite. NATO is in danger of completely losing control of the situation. Destroying the city is out of the question, so troops are sent in to hermetically seal off the area, which is promptly declared top secret and off-limits to all but a select few. A team of three highly-skilled specialists, led by a Canadian named Cole Sullivan is sent in by NATO commanders to discover the facts behind this startling turn of events. Will they discover what went on in Gorky 17? And what awaits them should they delve too deeply into the past? And, last but not least, will they survive the mission.


Wikipedia:

Gorky 17 (released as Odium in North America) is a turn-based tactics tactical role-playing game developed by Polish developer Metropolis Software and published by Monolith Productions for Microsoft Windows in 1999. The game was later ported to Linux by Hyperion Entertainment and published by Linux Game Publishing in 2006. Hyperion Entertainment also announced an AmigaOS 4[2] version of the game, but nothing was heard of the port since then. At the Amiga30th Anniversary Dinner in 2015 the AmigaOS version was finally demonstrated in a near finished state with an estimated release of Christmas 2015.

Gameplay

The game features two modes: In the real-time 'exploration' mode, the player controls game characters using a mouse in a point-and-click manner to navigate the player characters through the city as well as interacting with various objects in the game world. Combat takes place in preset encounters located in specific areas of each level map. In the combat mode, the screen is divided into squares with player and computer-controlled characters taking turns trying to eliminate the opposing party. In one turn each game character can move by a certain number of squares and use a weapon once, or decide to take cover instead. Weapons have different tactical effects, for example the pistol can only be fired orthogonally, while the rifle can be fired orthogonally and diagonally. The game ends if any player-controlled character dies.

Plot

The player commands a small group of NATO soldiers who must reveal the mystery behind the sudden appearance of hybrid creatures in a former Soviet military base at a small Polish town near Lubin. The area is surrounded by NATO troops and media from all over the world, and the first group sent into town disappears without a trace. The main hero of the story is the 40-year-old Canadian soldier Cole Sullivan, a commando team member with extensive scientific knowledge. His team's task is to explain the hybrids' presence and to find the missing members of Group One.

Test (démo) :
Un jeu des années 90 d'un graphisme dont la résolution ne dépasse pas les 1024x768.
Le graphisme est donc d'époque, mais mon fils aime y jouer de temps en temps.

Commentaires généraux :
Les sites TuxGames et LGP étant fermé, le jeu n'est plus disponible à la vente (il avait été porté sous Linux par Loki).
Des internautes demandent à ce qu'il soit disponible sur Steam (pour l'instant il n'est disponible qu'en version Windows).
Nous enlevons pour l'instant son statut "Linux Games".
