Deep Silver Reveals Factions in Mytran Wars for the PSP
Stormregion Developing Strategy Title Exclusively for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) System
LadyDragon - Deep Silver Inc., a publisher of interactive
entertainment software and a wholly-owned subsidiary
of Koch Media, today released new background information behind
the two different factions in their upcoming turn-based strategy game Mytran Wars.
By the mid 23rd Century, Earth stands united under the rule of a high presidium of
multinational corporations. Fossil fuels, drinkable water and other natural resources
are all but depleted.
The Kondor Corp. began investing in space research and development in the hopes of
exploiting much needed resources. When the planet Pythar is discovered it soon
becomes clear that the planet's most valuable resources are not its ore
reserves. Instead, it is a network of naturally existing energy running in
criss-crossed lines (called lay-lines) across the surface of the planet: the
junctions where two or more of these lines meet form energy pools that
concentrate the energy into a mass. These pools are home to the Mytrans forming
what Humans would describe as the equivalent of cities.
But the Kondor Corp. shareholders have seen far too much
money be poured into this project. They expect returns on their investment and if
that means plundering the planet for every resource it can give up, then
plunder they will. But the energy is the lifeblood of the Mytrans. They
need it to survive. Without it, they will surely perish. Thus war becomes inevitable.
The Mytrans are both majestic and ethereal. They are described by Humans as
resembling ghosts with elegant movements that mimic a being swimming through
the air. They see their planet, Pythar, as a bright surging vortex of energy. Being
a part of the environment also makes reproduction an easy task for the Mytrans.
In fact, there is no reproduction as humans understand it. Instead, for Elders,
death is dissolution of energy back into the energy flow and birth is nothing
more than a forming of energy into a whole sentient being. So this energy is
the "life essence" of the Mytrans and there are great ramifications if the
Humans extract it and take it back to Earth. Mytran society is split on how to
address this problem with the Humans. The Elders, who knew of the Old Wars,
want peace and coexistence with the Humans. The younger rebels on the other
hand, wish to drive them out by any means necessary.
"Mytran Wars" is being developed exclusively for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system
by Stormregion, creators of the highly-acclaimed Codename: Panzers games.
