Amen: The Awakening was a game in production by Cavedog Entertainment that was canceled. Gregory MacMartin was the lead designer and Jeremy Soule composed the music for the game.

Greg says... George Hamlin was the "main guy." "He's British and says 'bloody hell' a lot - that was to be his 'shtick'. We recorded a couple dozen versions of the voice actor saying 'bloody hell!'"

Amen The Awakening

AboutEdit

The following is copied from Archive.org's backup of Cavedog.com for archival purposes:

Prepare yourself for an action adventure that breaks all the rules.

Part action, part thriller, part puzzle-solver, and part cinematic epic, Amen: The Awakening takes a bold direction that sets a new standard for action-adventure gaming.

Features:

  • Twelve enormous acts (They're much too large to be called levels!) Many acts are ten times larger than a typical level found in most first-person action games.
  • Compelling gameplay: Sure, you're a highly trained commando, but sometimes frag-festing is the wrong way to go. You've got to use your skills, wits and brains to get out alive.
  • Challenging puzzles: Locked-door puzzles are boring. Amen: The Awakening features a huge variety of adventure-game style puzzles that are realistic and intuitive.
  • Realistic Environments: Explore subway systems, airports, military complexes (and a few surprises we can't mention yet) that are built to scale.

StoryEdit

The following is copied from Archive.org's backup of Cavedog.com for archival purposes:

Christmas Eve, 2032: Last-minute shoppers crowd the stores, workers down eggnog at company parties, and parents put excited children to bed. There is no warning for what is about to happen.

Suddenly, before anyone has time to prepare or react, a murderous insanity awakens within a third of the world's population. In the ensuing chaos, planes crash, cities burn and millions die. It is humanity's worst hour.

To stem the rampage of the Afflicted, the European Resistance Organization is formed in Western Europe to create a "safe-zone," where those who are not afflicted with the strange condition can live in peace. Simultaneously, large numbers of Afflicted begin an organized invasion of North America by systematically taking over or destroying key military and government installations.

But what is the cause of this strange affliction? Is it some kind of bio-chemical agent that has been unleashed upon the world? Or is this Armageddon, as predicted in Biblical prophecy? While the debates continue, the Afflicted exert ever-increasing control in North America, and the resistance there is in dire need of help.

Enter Britain's best-kept secret, Bishop Six, an incredibly dedicated commando whose work for the SAS was legendary. After his wife and daughter were killed by the Afflicted, Robert Dwight, a longtime friend and the ERO commander, asks Bishop Six to join a military strike force. Bishop Six agrees with grim determination.

Thus begins the most dangerous adventure of Bishop Six's life, as he slowly uncovers the horrible truth behind this strange affliction … and yet the entire truth remains elusive until the very end.

NCNEdit

The following is copied from Archive.org's backup of Cavedog.com for archival purposes:

After the horror the Afflicted brought upon the world after the Awakening, the non-Afflicted turned to the OmegaNet to keep the worldwide lines of communication open. Utilizing the bunker-like Omega Stations, resistance organizations organized and struck back at the Afflicted.

The OmegaNet posts contain background information about the game's storyline, characters and environments. Check it out!

Previously, readers followed the story along via the New Century News (NCN). In the world of Amen: The Awakening, the NCN was the worldwide leader in 24-hour news and entertainment. But that all came crashing down on Christmas Eve, 2032.

Like OmegaNet, the NCN posts provided the "backstory" for this epic adventure. You can access NCN archives via OmegaNet.
