    DreamCatcher Games Ships Emergency Fire Response on PC-CD

    Toronto, Ontario - July 29th 2003. DreamCatcher Games today announced that it has shipped Emergency Fire Response developed by Monte Cristo Games, on PC-CD.

    This 'hot' new strategy title puts gamers in charge of a squad of firefighters. But before sending their team out to battle blazing infernos, they must train them in every aspect of firefighting.

    Once trained, the player leads his team through 34 missions across 10 detailed environments. Each mission offers the firefighters a new challenge, including battles with poisonous fumes, rescues at major accidents or explosions at gas stations. A strong emphasis has been put on 3D graphics, and the camera rotates a full 360 degrees with full zoom functionality.

    Gamers learn to overcome all obstacles blocking their way and discover the best entry points to get to the core of a fire and extinguish it. Hard work and bravery is rewarded with heroes collecting 1 to 5 medals after completing a mission. Emergency Fire Response is one of the first 3D real-time strategy games which rewards saving lives and not taking them.

    The game designers worked in collaboration with an international fire consultant to ensure all scenarios look and feel as realistic as possible. The team also focused on creating authentic types of fires, smoke and explosions using particle effect technology.

    SRP will be $19.99
