International software publisher DEEP SILVER continue to sign new and
innovative tiles for their ever increasing 2005 gaming portfolio. Following the
recent announcements of the February launch of X²: The Return from EgoSoft and
the development of Heart of Empire, from renowned UK team Deep Red, DEEP SILVER
are delighted to add another title to what is becoming a 'star studded' first
quarter. Except this game has turned out to be a load of old 'SCRAP'
Deep Silver are pleased to announce the UK release of American
McGee's highly anticipated game, Scrapland. Working with development team
Mercury Steam, Executive Producer American McGee (Doom, Doom 2, Alice in
Wonderland) has injected his own unique blend of creativity into the character
development and dialogue of Scrapland, elevating the game play into a true
entertainment experience. A deeply immersive 3rd person 3D action/adventure,
Scrapland sets players in a bizarre robotic world made of scrap parts. Scheduled
for release January 2005, Scrapland will be the 1st release for Deep Silver on
the Xbox® video game system from
Microsoft, priced at £39.99. The game will also be available on PC CD ROM at
"I knew I wanted to be involved with this project the moment I
met with Mercury Steam and saw the game," said American McGee, Executive
Producer for Scrapland. "Scrapland has an extremely unique free-form style of
play that capitalizes on the success of games like GTA3, yet takes the action
one step further."
"The Deep Silver label is about finding innovative
games," said Craig McNicol, Managing Director of Deep Silver's parent KOCH
Media, "X² and Singles certainly made a mark in 2004 and established us as an
international publishing label. Scrapland fits perfectly into the Deep Silver
portfolio as a title that redefines the gaming experience."
DEEP SILVER, developed by MERCURY STEAM and distributed exclusively by KOCH
MEDIA in the UK, Germany and Italy, American McGee's Scrapland launches in the
