"Scheduled for a
fall 2000 release, Buffy the Vampire Slayer will be a third-person action
adventure game where players take on the role of Buffy Summers, a typical
high school cheerleader by day and a fierce, but savvy, destroyer of the
undead by night.
With the help of her allies
and featured characters from the TV series-- Angel, Xander, Cordelia,
Willow, Oz and Giles - Buffy must destroy the enemy by using her slaying
powers, martial arts, slaying senses and quick healing ability. The game
combines action, fighting, drama, humor, exploration and puzzle solving in
rich interactive 3-D environments.
Players will have the
opportunity to play this game in environments that are familiar to fans of
the show such as Sunnydale High School, the cemetery, town square, the
shopping mall, The Bronze nightclub and Buffy's home.
To maintain the authentic
look and feel from the TV series, the producers and creators of the shows,
Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, will play an active role in the
development of this title. Developed by The Collective, a Southern
California-based game developer, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer design team
will create detailed and accurate character and environment depictions
from the TV series and apply them to the interactive game."
