For Immediate Release

Hong Kong - May 11, 2007 - Leading online retailer has initiated a video game developed by the ambitious new team SideQuest Studios, thus entering the development business with a first project, published and distributed by eastasiasoft, entitled " Söldner-X: Himmelsstürmer " (URL: ).

In the storyline, planet Earth's resistance aims to stop a deadly infection consuming both life forms and technology alike, oddly having to rely on an anti-hero mercenary and bounty hunter to pilot a mighty prototype star fighter. His goal: To fight his way to the virus' origin, save civilisation and earn cash to boot!

Game features shall include:

  • 12 stages of beautiful parallax graphics and animations, staged across 4 fantastic world/space settings
  • classic design, yet state-of-the-art shooter technology
