If a few days ago we were surprised by the news of the future reissue of Plumbers Don’t Wear Ties, one of the worst games in the short history of 3DO, today we are left out of play with another news of a similar nature, since Ziggurat will rise from the dead that American Hero which was canceled for Atari Jaguar CD.
As if it were a low-budget film, this work from the Inter-Active Productions studio was precisely one of the interactive films that proliferated so much in the nineties … and that failed so much, except for that cult halo for some productions, such as Night Trap
With a release scheduled for this summer on current consoles and PC, we will have the original work restored and remastered for the occasion, almost 25 years later
In this “game” we will play Jack, a former intelligence officer who decides to return for one last mission, to stop the virologist Krueger and thus prevent him from controlling all the citizens of Los Angeles with a virus with his mind. A mere amateur if we compare him with Yuri, from Command & Conquer: Red Alert
The actor who brings Jack to life is Timothy Bottoms (The Last Picture Show, 1971), who has recorded new voice takes for the occasion. The cast is completed by actors such as Daniel Roebuck (The Fugitive, Final Destination), Lawrence Tierney (Reservoir Dogs), Musseta Vander (Mortal Kombat: Annihilation) o Sage Stallone, one of the sons of Sylvester Stallone himself (he shared a film with his father in Rocky V) as several of the best-known faces in this “movie.”
