Paradox Interactive is proud to present a double bill of thriller chiller, blood spillers!
In a world that wouldn’t allow them to survive, an entire cast of clichéd combatants meet one fateful night and unleash bloody carnage on their equally-contrived counterparts in this year’s smash hit, The Showdown Effect. Filmed in special 2.5D RenderVisionScope, The Showdown Effect’s multiplayer mayhem blasts its way from the silver screen to your home computer. Finishing off this unique double feature is one of the most sadistic, diabolical, sinister tales ever told. Three heroic adventurers , in search of fame and fortune, travel to a mysterious theme park overseer – the mythical Dungeon Maestro.
