Highly anticipated follow-up to the CODIE Award-winning Strategy game,
Ascendancy to be released on 1997 Vernal Equinox
Novato, Ca, September 22, 1996 -- It is the first day of the Autumnal
Equinox. Leaves are changing, cool air surrounds us, darkness lurks in the
shadows, the earth shifts into its winter hibernation and the countdown
begins to the launch of the highly anticipated real-time strategy game,
The Tone Rebellion, from The Logic Factory.
The Tone Rebellion features a constat struggle between light and dark and
good battling evil. Symbolizing this struggle is The Vernal Equinox, a
time of changing seasons where darkness succumbs to light and the earth
begins its ascent from the depths of winter. This symbol reinforces the
struggle that the game imparts and celebrates. The conflict represented by
the struggle of light over dark at the equinox is manifested in the game
by the players hopeful victory over darkness. The Tone Rebellion streets
on March 20, 1997 and follows the critically acclaimed Ascendancy,
Software Publisher's Association's Best Strategy Game of the Year.
"The Tone Rebellion takes the player into a world crafted from mythology,
fantasy and our life experiences," said Thomas Blom, co-founder of The
Logic Factory. "The Vernal Equinox symbolizes the struggle and co-
existence that is created in this game between light and dark. The March
20 release emphasizes that these struggles are part of all things,
including, of course, our own lives."
The Tone Rebellion is a collection of seventeen island worlds, suspended
in an ethereal void, connected by a variety of mystical doorways, bridges
Each world is inhabited by various creatures, the most notable of which
are Floaters-species who struggle together against a common monolithic
enemy. It is also laden with pools of the mystical, healing and life-
giving resource, Tone.
In this real-time strategy game, the player must guide Floater species,
develop their colonies and maintain their Tone resources gaining strength
and ability along the way. Choices will range from creating new floaters,
building structures, tapping into a tone pool or traveling off and
exploring the land to find more resources and clues about how to survive
and defeat the Leviathan. Throughout the players development of their
colony, the Leviathan continues to gain strength and deplete the players
of their precious Tone pools.
In addition to solo game play, the product will also feature a point to
point network multiplayer system. Competition is present in number of
forms, but the thrust of multiplayer promotes cooperation against the
ultimate common enemy - the Leviathan.
The Tone Rebellion will be available this Spring through Broderbund
Software's Affiliated Labels Program.
