Cold War

Cold War

Cold War is a Real Time Strategy action game.

The game follows the story of a freelance journalist who finds himself in the midst of an international conspiracy that aims to control the U.S.S.R. Twelve hours after arriving in Moscow for a routine story, he has been stripped of all possessions, beaten unconscious and thrown into the KGB`s political prison.

Using only recovered weapons and improvised gadgets, he must now evade or overcome elite Soviet forces and defeat the conspiracy before he is sent to a Siberian prison camp or killed.

Cold War achieves a first in gaming history, by transporting players inside a realistic depiction of some of the most well known places of the Former USSR, a place which has captured the imagination of the general public in books and films for generations, but has only been lightly covered in electronic games. The game also distinguishes itself by adding an invention system where the player can use seemingly useless objects to create tools and weapons.
