: Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Anotherone,
: From LucasArts web site:

: INDY BREAKS INTO A NEW DIMENSION IN HIS BOLDEST GAMING ADVENTURE,
: THE ACTION-FILLED INDIANA JONES‚ AND THE INFERNAL MACHINE‘ FROM
: LUCASARTS

: The Famed Archeologist in the Rumpled Fedora Returns to
: Whip Up New Real-Time 3D Thrills for PC

: SAN RAFAEL, Calif. -- May 28, 1998 -- Itís 1947 and the Cold War is just beginning its insidious
: spread. Soviet agents have been ordered by the Russian government to search the ruins of the fabled
: Tower of Babel for an ancient machine that could unlock a legendary inter-dimensional gate. If
: activated, the device could unleash a deadly force and swing the balance of power away from the
: West. Only one person is capable of preventing a plan so terrifying and dangerous: the renowned
: archeologist, Indiana Jones.

: Yes, Indy is back in Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine, a new real-time 3D action-adventure
: from LucasArts Entertainment Company LLC, expected to release first quarter 1999 for PC. Fraught
: with all the action and intrigue worthy of a classic Indiana Jones film, the game will lock players in a
: thrilling race around the globe to thwart the Sovietsí frantic search for clues to the mysterious Infernal
: Machine.

: "Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine is a sharp departure from LucasArtsí previous Indy titles,"
: says Project Leader Hal Barwood, who last guided Indy to mythical Atlantis. "Indiana Jones defines the
: very notion of action hero, perfect for a game in the real-time 3D action-adventure genre."

: The game begins when the CIA, led by Indyís old friend Sophia Hapgood, brings him alarming evidence
: that a Soviet physicist, Gennadi Volodnikov, has been searching the site of the Tower of Babel for
: evidence of an ancient machine that can open the door to a parallel dimension called the Aetherium.
: Volodnikov and his Communist henchmen are anxiously trying to reassemble the machine, but need to
: find several crucial parts to get it working. The missing parts, scattered throughout the far corners of
: the globe, are the targets of Indyís quest.

: Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine takes Indy to all the exotic locales players expect in an
: adventure this spectacular, ranging from the ruins of ancient Babylon and mysterious Tian Shan
: Mountain region in Kazakstan to the Aztec pyramids in Teotihaucan and beyond.

: Staying one step ahead of the Russians will require players to solve a variety of challenging mechanical
: puzzles. Interior sites, such as temples, tombs and dungeons, are incredibly expansive, and allow for
: thorough exploration, puzzle solving and intense combat.

: The gameís unique geographical locations also serve as settings for several special action sequences
: that range from guiding a raft through an exciting descent of white-water rapids, a spectacular off-road
: Jeep chase through the jungle to an exhilarating rollercoaster-like mine car ride.

: Indy has the ability to whip, crawl, run, leap, swim, swing, and climb through each level. Heíll rely upon
: his trusted whip, a complement of weapons (automatic pistols, rifles, a bazooka, hand grenades and
: satchel charges) and useful collected objects to defeat the gameís battalions of communist agents,
: soldiers and other-worldly adversaries. In addition, each machine part Indy finds confers a certain
: magical power that is necessary to help him complete subsequent chapters.

: Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine will feature solo, cooperative multiplayer scenarios, and
: various LAN and Internet gameplay modes. The game is designed to run under Windows 95, Windows
: 98 and Windows NT 5.0 and will require 3D acceleration.
