Scheduled for release in fall 2005, Snow is being developed for console and PC by Take-Two’s Frog City Software studio.
“The fictional underground world Frog City has created for Snow is the perfect setting for a real time strategy game,” said Christoph Hartmann, Senior Vice President of Publishing for 2K Games. “Snow will challenge players to oversee every aspect of the drug trade, all of which require calculated thinking in order to make your business prosper while at the same time keeping it safe from the authorities and other rival kingpins. This will surely make for an intense, paranoid and most importantly, strategic gaming experience.”
Snow is a gritty real-time strategy game that challenges players to become the ultimate ruler of a drug empire. Set in the 1970s and 80s during the heyday of drug lords, players in Snow must recruit characters for smuggling missions, bribery, protection, and the like, while fending off attacks from rival gangs and avoid running afoul of the authorities.
