McGee, who is the Hong Kong-based publisher for Enlight Software, has received his first assignment today. McGee will take the role of executive producer of Scapland, which is expected to be an action game for Xbox and PC. The game is expected to release at the end of the year.
McGee has also promised Scrapland will have an open-ended gameplay. "Scrapland has an extremely unique free-form style of play that capitalizes on the success of games like Grand Theft Auto III, yet it takes the action one step further," said McGee.
Set in a futuristic world teeming with sentient robots that aren't too fond of humans, Scrapland is being billed as a quirky action game. Players will assume the role of D-Tritus, a cybernetic wanderer who gets mixed up in a series of murders on a planet whose inhabitants had, until recently, been thought of as immortal. Using his abilities to transform into 15 types of characters, D-Tritus scours the city of Chimera to solve the murders.
