Gorky 17

Gorky 17

Gorky 17 (released as Odium in North America) is a turn-based tactics RPG computer game created by Polish developer Metropolis Software. The gameplay was loosely inspired by the Vandal Hearts console RPG series, and other similar games such as Final Fantasy Tactics and Kartia.

It is a horror conspiracy game mixing elements of strategy and RPG gameplay. You the player command a small group of NATO soldiers who must reveal the mystery behind the sudden appearance of hybrid creatures in a small Polish city named Lubin. The city is being terrorized, the area is surrounded by NATO troops and media from all over the world, and the first group sent into the city disappears without a trace.

The main hero of the story is the 40-year old soldier Cole Sullivan, a commando team member with extensive scientific knowledge. His team`s task: to explain the hybrids` presence and to find the missing members of Group One. But that, of course, is just the beginning...
