Nival Interactive Announces
Hammer & Sickle

Nival Interactive proudly announces
Hammer & Sickle, a new tactical role playing game set in the Silent Storm
universe. The game is being co-developed by Novik&Co and Nival Interactive.

Set in the British-American sector
of occupied Germany in the spring of 1949, you are a Soviet undercover agent who
finds himself caught in the middle of an escalating confrontation between the
intelligence services of the world’s superpowers. You’ll have to make your way
through a web of cunning intrigues, setting off chain reactions that will affect
the fate of the world: will it live in peace, or collapse into the chaos of
World War 3?

A unique mix of turn-based and
role-play, Hammer & Sickle is a brand-new gaming experience. The dizzying array
of tactical solutions for each situation is greatly deepened by the fully
destructible environments – while an open mission structure and the non-linear
story put you in complete control of the game world.
