Warsaw-based game developer Bnayat Games has announced that immersive first-person bomb-defusing sim Shockwave: Land of the Blind is coming to PC on Steam in early 2023.
Set in present-day Syria, Shockwave: Land of the Blind tells the story of Jerome Kowalski, a former military sapper who now works for the peacekeeping force as a bomb disposal expert.
Jerome accompanies an emissary on his way to post-war Aleppo, Syria, to save the lives of a community living in the ruins of a city ravaged by conflict, lawlessness and crime. As a seasoned sapper, Jerome faces the devastating genius of a determined bomber who opposes his wits, knowledge and experience in the final showdown.
Shockwave: Land of the Blind puts a lot of emphasis on stealth and intelligence gathering in missions that are multi-path and multi-level, there are no quest markers, no mini-map or magic radar to spot a threat. There is only your knowledge and skillful determination, and how you adapt to a crisis by donning a full, upgraded bomb suit designed to protect against shrapnel, blast overpressure, impact, heat, and flame.
