A new independently developed game is now on the horizon, as Atropos Studios has recently announced production of Diamonds in the Rough.
Although this is the first game from the startup Greek studio, Atropos was founded by Alkis Polyrakis, who is no stranger to adventures, having previously released the Underground title called Other Worlds.
Diamonds in the Rough is a traditional third-person, point and click adventure that casts players in the role of a high school dropout named Jason Hart. Although oblivious to any special abilities he may possess, Jason is approached by an organization who recruits those with extraordinary mental powers. When he accepts a job with this company and moves to the American midwest, "he will soon start to wonder who he is really working for, and what the purpose of the organization is."
For more information about the game, be sure to check out the official website. Diamonds in the Rough is currently targeted for release in the fall of 2007.
