Rather than having its light snuffed out by recent publisher difficulties, Finnish developer Turmoil Games is shining brighter than ever with a new publisher deal and a brand new teaser for its upcoming horror adventure, Alpha Polaris.
Alpha Polaris sends players to the chilly environs of an American oil research station in Greenland. High above, however, an unprecedented ion storm is building, and "bringing about a strange intermixing of reality and night terrors. It is up to Rune Knudsen, a Norwegian biologist, to take on a desperate struggle against fear and death, and to face the primordial force lurking beyond the veiled sky."
The release of Alpha Polaris seemed somewhat in jeopardy when original German publisher The Games Company was declared bankrupt. However, a newly-reformed version of key TGC members under a new company called Just-A-Game stepped in to fill the void, and Turmoil reports that the game is still in full development and moving right along.
No firm release date has been announced for Alpha Polaris yet, the but the developers are currently targeting a completion date in the first quarter of 2011.
