ANACONDA announces Undercover: Dual Motives

Not too many games go straight to Germany first but the adventure game Undercover: Operation Wintersun will get a prequel on the Nintendo DS and will come out there first as ANACONDA has announced Undercover: Dual Motives. In the game players take control of physicist and reluctant spy Dr. John Russell in his early days, investigating at a British research facility. The first game was a hunt for a Nazi nuclear bomb in the Second World War so we can only imagine that that might have something to do with the prequel

In addition to John Russell, players have access to a second playable character in Audrey, the secretary of the facility’s director. Both screens of the DS are used, when Russell and Audrey investigate. Working separately, the player is in control of one of them at a time, directing them via the touchscreen and stylus. The other screen displays the currently inactive character, which he can switch over to at any time. The challenge: cleverly use the individual abilities of the two different characters in order to solve the game’s logical puzzles – even if they are in different rooms.

Austrian developer Sproing is already hard at work on the handheld adventure Undercover: Dual Motives, and will feature both classic adventure gaming elements for on-the-go, as well as using the unique capabilities of the DS to implement novel ideas. Undercover: Dual Motives will be released worldwide by ANACONDA, starting with German-language territories at the end of March 2007. So until more news becomes available be sure to check out the early screenshots below.
