- Download the demo now and meet some comic "buddies" -
Eschborn, May 19, 2011: Next week will see the release of Cargo! - The Quest for Gravity, the latest title from Ice-Pick Lodge and bitComposer games. Anyone who would now like a glimpse into this extraordinary game can now access the demo at: www.cargo-game.com. This little gem scarcely weighs 800 mB, and will take adventurous travelers to the beautiful, autumnal island archipelago formerly known as "Earth". This sumptuously colored season provides an ideal setting in which to test the weird yet endearing atmosphere of Cargo! - The Quest for Gravity with no commitment.
This action adventure will be available in stores from May 26, 2011 priced €19.99 (RRP) and, besides a tough little protagonist, has an overrated captain, a vast array of vehicles of all kinds and also those who have been chosen as replacements for humans: small, cheerful beings whose egotism and lack of humor are totally alien. They also love taking risks and receiving a hefty kick in the behind!
Cargo! - The Quest for Gravity
When things didn't quite work out last time after The Flood, with this end of the world, the Gods have stopped the Earth, removed gravity and, to replace man, have created the "Buddies", who are independent of gravity.
But Flawkes, one of the last survivors, discovers the Buddies' secret: fun! This is why they don't need gravity. He then creates the curious element, F.U.N., and this generates gravity. So Flawkes sets out to provide the Buddies with as much fun as possible. As F.U.N. will still be turning when the world comes to an end, the seasons and gravity return, and the Gods realize that humanity is a force you just can't reckon with.
Flawkes is controled by the player in the 3rd person and provides the Buddies with lots of opportunities to have fun: they love a hefty kick up the behind, any kind of danger, music, car racing and breakneck trips in all sorts of vehicles.
