Enlight And American Mcgee Ship Scrapland For The Xbox


Enlight and American McGee Bring
Long-Awaited Xbox Version to Retailers Nationwide

PARKVILE, MD (March 4, 2005) –
Enlight, a leading entertainment software publisher, along with Executive
Producer American McGee and developer Mercury Steam, announced today that
Scrapland for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft has shipped to stores
nationwide. An engagingly humorous 3rd person action-adventure game, Scrapland
has drawn comparisons to such hits as Grand Theft Auto and Descent for its
open-ended gameplay and extreme, futuristic 3D flying missions. The Xbox
version, which will be on store shelves March 7, carries a SRP of $29.99 and has
been rated “T” for TEEN.

American McGee Presents Scrapland
features a spectacularly detailed world where players can pursue an engrossing
storyline or go off on adventures of their own. As the robot D-Tritus, players
must solve a series of murders by navigating the dangerous robot-inhabited city
of Chimera on the planet known as Scrapland. D-Tritus can fight on the ground or
he can hijack the bodies of any of 15 character types, each with their own
unique abilities. He can also steal, build, customize and fly a huge variety of
ships and engage in explosive 3D combat against other pilots.

“I’m really excited to have had the
opportunity to work with Mercury Steam on this project,” said American McGee,
Executive Producer of Scrapland. “This team is truly talented, and the reaction
from the gaming community has been incredibly enthusiastic.”

Scrapland is the first of a new
series of titles from Enlight branded “American McGee Presents.” The “American
McGee Presents” brand was created earlier this year when McGee took on the role
of Creative Director at Enlight. The PC version of Scrapland shipped in November
of 2004 and received some rave reviews from many in the editorial community. For
