    Мексика. Страна текилы, горячих женщин и распоясавшихся наркобаронов. Твоего отца подло подставили, и достойный выход из этой неприятной ситуации может быть только один: нужно добыть доказательства невиновности родителя, причем доказательства эти не должны вызывать и тени сомнения у доблестных служителей мексиканского правосудия. Путей решения проблемы тоже не так уж много: доказать что-то можно будет, лишь внедрившись в самое сердце наркокартеля, лишь добравшись до самой его верхушки и вырвав у этой верхушки нужные сведения. Вырвав их силой, с кровью и мясом, конечно. Иначе никак. Потому что здесь - Месика. Страна текилы, горячих женщин и распоясавшихся наркобаронов...

Press release (17th March 2005):

    SCi Games presents... TOTAL OVERDOSE

    The year is 1989 and deep in the sweltering heat of the Mayan jungle, camouflaged among the Inca ruins, Ernesto Cruz catches his breath for a few moments and admires his handiwork, bodies strewn across the temple ruins, as he makes a last gasp effort to board a DEA plane to take him to safety. He never made it home, the tragic victim of an alleged 'OVERDOSE'.

    Two weeks ago Ernesto's son, Ramiro Cruz is hauled out of jail by the DEA to be told his twin brother, Tommy, works for them as an undercover agent and has some new information about their father's death. But, Tommy has had an accident with a hand grenade and now Ramiro must take his brother's place in an undercover operation closing in on the ruthless drug cartel overlord Papa Muerte.

    Through stylized Mexican neighbourhoods and jungle hide-outs to the swanky Californian coast; TOTAL OVERDOSE is an over-the-top, adrenalin-fuelled, free-style action, 3rd person cinematic adventure with a strong whiff of tequila.

    Crash cars, steal hats, shoot bad guys with style, jump bikes, fight in the street, meet girls, shoot more bad guys, find your fathers killer, hot-wire tractors, eat Burritos, catch planes, drink tequila; the Mexican heat can make people do the strangest things.

    Coming summer 2005
