IMG Previews Payback
1:32 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a preview of Payback, the action-packed game that pays homage to the mega-hit, Grand Theft Auto. The game was ported to the Mac by Virtual Programming and is scheduled for release in North America shortly (it is currently available in Europe) and will be distributed by Freeverse Software.

Here's a clip from the preview:

Anyone who remembers the original installment of Grand Theft Auto, with its violence-for-the-sake-of-violence gameplay, will find Payback instantly familiar. Played from a bird's eye view perspective, this full 3D game will have you racing across various large cityscapes, on foot or in all manner of vehicles, committing more crimes than I personally would have thought humanly possible. The more death, damage, and havoc you wreak, the greater your score?points are awarded for everything from murder to carjacking to just plain blowin' stuff up. This is definitely not a game for impressionable kids, the morally upright, or just about anyone who can't handle absurd amounts of motor vehicle induced mayhem.
