Wideload Games has officially announced development [i]Rebel Without a Pulse[/i], the thrid person action game powered by the [i]Halo[/i] engine. In [i]Rebel[/i], the player will take control of Stubbs, who embarks on a journey for “love, justice and brains.”
“On his quest, Stubbs lurches his way through numerous large and visually captivating indoor/outdoor environments in and around the gleaming city of Punchbowl, PA, a city built during the Eisenhower administration to show off the ultra-futuristic technology of the 21st century. Stubbs’ brain-eating adventure brings him through bustling shopping districts and verdant farmlands to battle mad scientists, rural militiamen and the world’s deadliest barbershop quartet. His enemies have shotguns, tanks, and all manner of futuristic weaponry.
All Stubbs has is his own rotting corpse, a distinct lack of pain or conscience, and the ability to turn foes into zombie allies.”
[i]Rebel Without a Pulse[/i] is currently scheduled to release sometime in Summer 2005 for PC, Xbox, and Mac.
