Supernatural memory-leeching in the Arctic Circle: the Russian answer to BioShock.
Russian publisher 1C has an enormous line-up for the coming year, but the star performer is undoubtedly icy PC shooter Cryostasis. The game's developer, the Moscow-based Action Forms, gave us a brief hands-on with the game at KRI, the Russian Game Developers conference. What we saw was a grim, moody shooter, strongly reminiscent of last year's adventures in Rapture. This time, however, the flashbacks aren't in the form of tapes and recordings: we actually get to play them.
