Merscom announced today it is working jointly with Starz Media and Overture Films to develop and publish a game based on the upcoming feature film, Righteous Kill. The film stars Robert De Niro and Al Pacino as two veteran New York City detectives who are on the trail of a vigilante serial killer. The movie's theatrical release is on September 12, 2008.
The Righteous Kill game is scheduled for release late summer and is a hidden objects game where the player takes the role of a rookie cop, newly assigned to a special division of the NYPD. This unit is dedicated to the pursuit and capture of vigilante killers. The game will consist of 15 levels and 16 environments. In addition, there will be multiple mini-games that move the player along in the story.
