Dire is geared toward the fans of survival horror games. This game will use every method possible to scare the players. All occurrences in this game will be random. Random events will include seeing the angry undead (spirits) and having them take their anger out on you by yelling right in your face. Random monster encounters, viewing the works in multiple views, from the view of the Hybrids (monsters), viewing how things once were (walking into a room full of corpses and having a vision on how it happened), and viewing through the eyes of the undead are also things to look forward to. We are going to flash morbid pictures, have faint voices mocking the players in the background, and many other things that will make the player scared and uneasy during the game.
The Government has a nasty habit of trying to experiment with new drugs and technology to try and create a better stronger soldier. Thousands of years ago it is speculated that humans evolved from monkeys. We went from a mere gorilla to what we are now, but what will happen when we go from mere humans to the next step? It is something that many scientists ponder upon, but it is also something the government has wanted to see. They created a secret division of scientists to work on this very project and code named it “Project EVO.” The first testing to achieve this was commenced on Monkeys and Gorillas, but over a year of testing gave the team little to show. The government then decided that they would need to commence the tests on humans themselves if they would like to see any actual results. The staff of project EVO knew this would not be an easy thing. Who could they take without a family to miss them? They then decided upon the gathering of homeless citizens while giving them false hopes of a new life and place to live, only to use them as guinea pigs for their tests. The tests had much more conclusive results than the monkeys. After seven months of trail and error, the scientists of Project EVO did what they set out to do and wielded the power of evolution in their hands. Although they reached their goal, they still had a road block in front of them. The test subjects didn’t evolve nearly as far as expected. It was estimated that they would evolve to an extent that they would be a new perfect being. Able to use the full potential of the brain and wield objects as if it was an extension of its own body, when all they where getting is a primal version of a human. Yes, they where faster, stronger and more enhanced than any human alive, but their minds went back to the primal ways of a pack of wild gorillas. These so called “mistakes” were code named “Hybrids.”
The year is now 2005, and a Special Forces team of six sent into Iraq to investigate a secret military bunker located near the boarder that could be housing a nuclear weapon. This team is made up of the best soldiers that we have today. It includes five men and one woman. This woman is named Tonya Summers, code name Dark Fox. While infiltrating the base the team was compromised by a security squad that was watching over the base. They were able to retreat to the evacuation point, but not before suffering the loss of three of their teammates. Only Dark Fox and two others remained while waiting for their ride out of certain death. By the time the chopper got there, only Dark Fox was found alive. Though alive, Dark Fox’s life was fading quickly. She was going to die and the field medics franticly trying to help her knew it. She was brought to the nearest military base for medical attention. She couldn’t go to a hospital because the government feared that the media would get wind of an injured soldier. The chopper went to a small military complex outside of Iraq which housed a top notch medical staff. What everyone was not aware of though, was that the military complex also housed the testing facility for Project EVO. Moments away from death, reality started to blur and Dark Fox’s body grew numb. Some of the researchers for Project EVO got word that a top Special Forces member actually arrived at the base and was in her current condition. In a quick panic, the researchers and scientists made a quick decision, the scientists decided to test their long hours of research on Dark Fox. They figured, if she dies she dies, if she fails she is just another hybrid, but if she is more, then they have succeeded where they once could not.
Two weeks have passed and Dark Fox is now in a facility located in Plainville Wisconsin. She has been in a coma since the night she was flown into the military complex outside of Iraq, but is amazingly still among the living. The research facility she is in is code named “Hybrid House” since it is home to every hybrid created over the period of Project EVO’s testing. It is a cold rainy night and has been that way for four days. The weather man on TV says that this day should be just like all the others and not to expect any differences for the next few days, but what he didn’t predict, is that the storm is about to get a lot worse. Everyone in the facility soon realizes this as Dark Fox awakes from her slumber
Dire takes the meaning of tense to the extreme! There will be randomly evented maps, in which a low background sound will taunt you, and freaky flashbacks will tell the how things have been. Chased rapidly down by your superior hybrid opponents, you must block the way with crates, tables, panels, anything that is close!
