Description

In January 20, 1996, an UFO incident ocurred in Varginha, Brazil, involving reports of UFOs and aliens, supposedly captured by Brazilian officials. Frustrating the military forces involved, some of these aliens escaped toward the city, where they were seen by some witnesses, including the player, who receives an special mission from them: to find and recover their captured space ship!

The Varginha Incident is a FPS which mixes fact and fiction exploring the real happenings in Varginha. Taking sides with the aliens, the player must fight the Brazilian military forces, trying to rescue captured aliens and their spaceship. Though the game, the player will discover that a whole underground city called Stonedrome was built in southeastern Brazil, where aliens and human secret agents work together.

The game engine is 2.5D, mixing 3D models (for the background objects and vehicles) and sprites for the characters. The game explores real Brazilian locations, like the Guanabara Bay in Rio de Janeiro, the Sé metro station in São Paulo, besides the city of Varginha itself.

At the very beginning of the game, the player receives a Bioproc: an alien device which works both as a map and a translator. He can use four kinds of weapons, including an alien one. He'll also need to find key items to unlock areas and proceed in game.
