Fierce Talon Episode One: Dreams Of A Dead Man

Fierce Talon is is a 3D adventure/detective game with a strong film noir mood, set in an alternative near future. The game will be distributed and sold via online distribution channels. The game has been in production for around 2+ years with a fairly regular team. We are currently switching to the Ogre3D graphics engine, because at the moment our in-house engine would take too long to complete and we are pressed for time.

It will also feature full modability for the community aswell as a multiplayer mode.
