While many of us think the Persian Gulf War took place in 1991, the "First" Persian Gulf War between Iran and Iraq in the 1980s provides the dramatic backdrop for a new adventure from indie developer RSK Entertainment, The Way of Love: Sub Zero.
Set during the armed conflict between Iran and Ba'athist Iraq that lasted from 1980 to 1988, The Way of Love stars two playable protagonists. The first is an Iranian Air Force pilot named Asif, who is betrayed by a traitor and captured while attempting to return important documents to his country that could determine the fate of the war. He is able to safely hide the documents first, however, and now it's up to a man named Rasoul to recover them and hopefully rescue Asif as well.
Although the first teaser displays a graphic novel-style cinematic format, The Way of Love is a traditional third-person adventure in 2.5D style. The game will feature more than 80 different backgrounds, and include artificial intelligence for secondary characters, as enemy troops will respond differently to you depending on which uniform the protagonists are wearing.
This isn't the only adventure that RSK is working on, as we're still waiting on the previously announced Murder in Tehran's Alleys 1933 (currently being localized with English voiceovers) and Forgotten Sound to be released. But The Way of Love: Sub Zero isn't far off, as the game has been completed in the developer's original Persian language and is currently being translated into English for a projected downloadable launch date in April.
