Every Breath You Take
A dystopian world presents an ambience of dislocation, menace and tough love which is set around World War III. The unseen aggressor marauding and consuming its way through the population is a parasitic organism capable of making hosts of unsuspecting human beings, consuming what’s left of their souls and wreaking unfathomable havoc.
Players will traverse a total of 13 game levels: 5 main levels and 8 sub-levels, plus the customary crazy boss fight at the end of each main level and several mini-bosses . With martial law having been declared to make way for a global hunt, battle-hardened law enforcers have made allies of the most degenerate of criminals, while the rest of the world is paralysed with paranoia. So who can be trusted? Who can see it, let alone destroy it? That’s for them to worry about. For YOU are the enemy. YOU are the organism with a mission.
YOU are… HyperParasite
