Back To The Future For Role Playing Games? Australian Game Developers (http://www.ausgamedev.com) has released The Omega Syndrome, a computer role-playing game for Windows 2000/XP that follows in the footsteps of classic games such as Fallout, Ultima 7, and Baldur’s Gate. The Omega Syndrome’s story is a breath of fresh air for the RPG genre, as it is set in 1950’s America and the player works for a secret organization that hunts down aliens and UFOs. It was designed to appeal to the mature gamer, who fondly remembers the golden era of computer role-playing games, as it uses a top down view that affords a strategic view of the battlefield. Its combat is turn-based and it uses well written text to describe its quests and dialogue. The Omega Syndrome’s rule system encourages different playing styles depending on the type of character created and the skills the player chooses to advance in. It also comes with an editor and an online community, so the players can make and share their games. The Omega Syndrome costs $19.95 and is available from Australian Game Developers, You can download a demo of The Omega Syndrome (for Windows 2000/XP) from http://www.ausgamedev.com
