 A Dark Dawn Is Imminent
Genius Dog, a start-up company dedicated to creating high quality video games, is announcing its first release: Dark Dawn. It is slated for release in September 2013, upon successful completion of its Kickstarter Campaign. It will first appear on Android and iOS for $0.99, with PC, Mac, Linux and Ouya and concole eshops to follow.
The player controls Korak, one of the few intelligent survivors of a war-torn Earth. He witnessed the return of mankind from the skies: humans who had taken refuge at a space station, returned to re-populate their planet. But instead of aid, he found himself cast away, thrown to the slums with the other survivors: the mutants. Now, enemy to both sides, he sets off on a journey to harness a hidden power within…
 
Dark Dawn successfully combines the old and the new, as a 2D side-scroller action game with modern, stylistic graphics. It boasts a wide variety of locations, weapons and enemies. All of these are affected by a unique Day/Night mechanic that mirrors the time zone of the player. When played at night, the game is more difficult, with the mutants becoming stronger and ammo and power-ups appearing less frequently. Korak can collect money to upgrade his weapons and gain passive abilities to defeat the horde of mutants.
