Overclocked: new details from the psycho-thriller

Hamburg, Germany: September 8, 2006 – Striking new ways for a classic point & click adventure game, Overclocked tells an exceptional story about a psychiatrist and his five young patients. Today, ANACONDA released new shots and details about the riveting psychological thriller from House of Tales.

US army combat psychiatrist David Mc Namara has been hit hard since retiring from active duty: struggling with mysterious choleric attacks and a marriage in crisis, he is now called to New York for his expertise in forensic psychiatry. At the Staten Island Forensic Hospital he is to attend to five young men and women, who were found screaming, scared, with no memory or orientation across New York City. Dave begins to cautiously explore the memories of his young patients – and makes alarming discoveries.

The game’s exceptional approach: players not only take over the role of Dave McNamara, who investigates in the present, but also will take control of the five patients in flashbacks. The memories that McNamara brings to light, are explored by the player in backward chronological order – the further players progress in the game, the further back in time he advances.

The new screenshots show Dave working with Ray, one of the patients and show two gloomy scenes from the traumatised characters’ flashbacks.

Overclocked combines the virtues of highly detailed, pre-rendered backgrounds with a dynamic camera. Cinematic camera movements, panning, zooms and close-ups, together with motion capturing, facial animations, 3D characters, real-time post-processing effects and real-time light/shadows guarantee for the adventure game’s exceptional graphics.

ANACONDA will release the new game by House of Tales, the makers of The Moment of Silence, worldwide in April 2007.
