ICEBOX: Speedgunner Winter Challenge on Steam Jan 8!
Developer Games Of Edan today announced the scheduled release of “ICEBOX: Speedgunner” V1.2 in readiness for the Winter Challenge Special Event being held via Steam.
The Winter Challenge is a brand new level to compete on for a very limited time. At the event conclusion on Jan 15, the leaderboard is locked and winner announced. Games of Edan will then send the winner a prize (The winner’s prize will comprise steam keys for a random selection of games).
ICEBOX: Speedgunner sees the player carving an ice-cool path through a brand new 3D Platforming FPS, cutting corners, dodging obstacles & eliminating sentinels, in a battle to escape the ICEBOX, before it’s permanently shut down. The player will race the clock, hunt the Central AI and leverage run-and-gun gameplay to navigate a digital labyrinth, top the global leaderboards and become the Ultimate Speedgunner. Inspired by the “Brain in a Vat” thought-experiment, the game explores the concept of escaping your own virtual prison.
