The walls of Jericho crumbled long ago, but Clive Barker has a different kind of Jericho in mind for us this September. As that is rapidly approaching, summer will be over before you know it, I have assembled everything I could find about that game for you here. Check it all out after the break. They're calling it 15 hours of intense gameplay but single player only.

 


Jericho, the phantasmagorical FPS hand crafted by the acclaimed horror writer and filmmaker, Clive Barker.

Created from an original concept and story, Clive Barker’s Jericho promises an overload of sensory horror shock as players journey through hellish locations and slices of time.  An action/horror FPS, the ‘Jericho’ of the title refers to the Jericho Team, a seven-person strike force that protects government interests from paranormal threats.  Trained in both conventional warfare and the arcane arts, each Jericho Team member is an expert in different para-psychological disciplines, including clairvoyance, alchemy, blood magic and exorcism.

The game leads the Jericho Team toward a source of ancient evil so supremely powerful that it has broken through time into our world and is threatening to engulf the Earth.  At ground zero lies the Middle Eastern city of Al-Khali, the site of a huge, secret archaeological dig and paranormal research centre – now the heart of a dimensional rift.

Players must navigate the Jericho Team through Al-Khali’s labyrinthine streets, alleys and structures, moving block by block in search of the rift.  As the squad approaches the target, the city now crawling with hellish denizens emerging from the source, the team is forced to rely less and less on traditional weapons and instead on harnessing their combined psychic abilities to defeat the supernatural nemesis…no matter how horrific their looks or attacks may be.

Licensed through Alchemic Productions, Clive Barker’s Jericho is currently in development at Mercury Steam and will utilize the Madrid-based studio’s new proprietary next-generation graphics engine to bring the monsters and demons from the depths of Barker’s imagination to life.  The engine marries photo-realistic art with hyper-realistic color and lighting effects to achieve a uniquely dark and almost surreal visual atmosphere, dropping players into the heart of Clive’s chilling interactive nightmare.
