Behind The Iron Curtain.
10:30 AM EST | Brad Custer
In Cold War from Runesoft it's 1986, and the United States and the Soviet Union are taking the first tentative steps toward perestroika-a sense of friendship and cooperation that has not existed between the two world superpowers for decades.
It appears that the Cold War might actually be over.
Unfortunately, not everyone thinks that glasnost is a good thing.
A fundamentalist faction within the Soviet government doesn't want the Cold War to thaw-they want it to heat up.
Led by Barinsky, the radical head of the KGB, a group of separatists is making a last, desperate attempt to return the USSR to the control of the hard-line Communist regime by framing an American in a plot to assassinate the Soviet president and set off a chain of events that could very well lead to World War III.
Matthew Carter, a hard-nosed American journalist following a tip from an informant, has just arrived in Moscow to cover a story.
He is hoping that this assignment will lead to the story of a lifetime.
Instead, it leads him into the thick of Barinsky's plot.
Now, instead of vying for a Pulitzer Prize, Carter is fighting to clear his name, get to the bottom of Barinsky's sinister plan, and get out of the Soviet Union alive.
Does this game sound fun or what? ;)
Last week it was officially annouced that Cold War from Runesoft was coming to the Mac and my inbox started to fill up immediately.
It's obvious that a lot of you are looking forward to this upcoming title as much as I am.
I truly enjoy games based on espionage that require you to use stealth instead of mindlessly blasting your way through the game.
So, this week's creation is for me as well as for all the viewers.
I was able to design this wallpaper with the help of Runesoft and my trusty cable modem.
I simply entitled this selection, "Cold War", and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did making it. :)
Everyone be sure to keep those requests coming in.
