Dead Space Ignition detailed at EA press event
At an EA press event today, a Dead Space 2 producer showed the first footage of the downloadable interactive comic Dead Space Ignition. The story, a prequel to the sequel, is delivered via lightly animated comic book-style art and follows an engineer on the Sprawl space station. Between the uniforms, the voices and the semi-animated look, Ignition reminds us of Sealab 2021 -- bizarro!

The engineer's job, of course, is to fix electronics, and that's where the main interactive part comes into play, in the form of three minigames: "Hardware Crack," "System Override," and "Trace Route." Only Trace Route was shown today -- a hacking-themed riff on the abstract line racer, Light Trax.

Ignition is coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network this fall.Dead Space Ignition detailed at EA press event originally appeared on Joystiq on Tue, 20 Jul 2010 17:10:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.Permalink | Email this | Comments
