?Dark Fall II: Lights Out Ships With Stunning Strata ImagesAction adventure game takes realism to a dark, new place (October 06, 2004)
Strata, the company dedicated to adding a new dimension to the designers toolset, is pleased to announce that Dark Fall II the hot new action adventure game was created using Strata 3D.
Strata 3D has a long history with action adventure games, including being the tool used to create the all-time best selling game MYST. Dark Fall II: Lights Out takes this scary history to a dark, new realm of photo-realism. The game offers more than 50 realistic pre-rendered locations to explore in an unnerving ghost story weaved with multiple subplots. Players encounter a virtual cast of characters and observe and interact with spectral beings in this adventure thriller.
According to Jonathan Boakes, the creative genius behind the game, Strata 3D was a critical part of the development process. ?Strata 3D continues to be a key part of my toolset. The software has allowed me to work from my studio here in Scotland to bring my vision to life and to reach a worldwide audience.
