Another classic gets a new life thanks to ScummVM, which just recently added support for the 1995 shooter Wetlands.
Work on this and the HYPNO game engine has been ongoing for some time now, with the team mentioning that it's now properly ready for some public testing.
"This sci-fi rail shooter was created by Hypnotix and published by New World Computing in 1995. The game includes 20 action-packed levels, cinematic cutscenes, attractive hand-drawn characters, and stunning 3D backgrounds.
Set in 2495, humanity is now forced to live in underwater cities after a nuclear test gone wrong caused uninterrupted worldwide rain. A war is unleashed between The Federation (Earth’s remaining governments) and the Volarins, a group of terrorists led by the mad scientist and Wetlands’ main villain, Phillip Nahj. You’ll play as John Cole, a ruthless mercenary hired to catch Nahj alive."
The release with ScummVM supports English, Spanish, French, German, and Korean languages with improvements made to the controls.
You can buy a copy of Wetlands on GOG.com.
