Ziggurat interactive buys the rights to blood, rain and advent. Rising from Jessica. On Ziggurat Interactive's website, it describes itself as a new and old video game company. It specializes in remastering old games, and it recently announced some interesting intentions when it purchased the rights to a handful of properties from Moscow. Blood rain was a PS two game cube, xbox era action, third person shooter game series that accounted for two main line games in a third smaller side. Scroll her that released in two thousand eleven. The series follows rain, a vampire woman with bright red hair. Who Really Hates Nazis? It's a series that has been pretty dormant since that two thousand eleven released, but it looks like Ziggurat.

Advent, rising advent rising is a SCI FI game from donald and Jeremy Mustard who later went on to found developer chair, which released the fantastic shadow complex and the infinity Blade Games these days. Donald Mustard works pretty much exclusively on fortnight. I really liked advent rising at the time of its release, and it's alien invasion story. It also ended with a cliffhanger that I just had now assumed was forever doomed to never be followed up on. I honestly don't think it will ever get a sequel, but I would love an excuse to revisit the game with updated visuals and performance. One of the downfalls of the original game was that it struggled. I remember even an early cut scene having really rough frame rate issues on Xbox, but the combat was really cool. It's a combination of shooting and psychic abilities that were each mapped to separate control sticks triggers, so you could do things like fling enemies to space with the left control, stick and fire off your weapon with the right. I really liked that game and I hope cigarette has some plans for it. The DC fan dome event is promising details about upcoming WBZ Games.
