The game, played on the Sony PlayStation platform, follows the adventures of covert U.S. paramilitary squad mobilized to investigate a string of bizarre murder cases in a remote mountain community. Their adversaries are genetically mutated creatures.

Alan McElroy, author of the “Spawn” comics, which are currently in production as a feature film for New Line Cinema, will pen the script. Entertainment Licensing Associates head Daniel Kletzky handled the negotiations and will also serve as exec producer on the film.
