Rid the World of Sinners

Bob is a working-class angel ordered by God himself to go and clean up the putrid, disgusting, sleazy, and infested world of the future. He has been given the power of POSSESSION so that he can sneak up on any person, animal or genetically engineered being and leap right into their soul!

With your help, Bob can then use their bodies, their weapons, or even their bare hands to strangle, cripple, impale, and incinerate the cities of sinners sent to stop you from finding Satan himself.

Hiding in their souls, Bob can use these sinner's bodies against their will as ARMOR (to take pain for him), or he can use them for CAMOUFLAGE (to hide inside them) and pretend to be just another twisted citizen in the Messiah world...

The RULES are up to you... Enjoy the freedom.

Technology

  • RT-DAT technology will generate the most detailed characters and worlds your personal machine can handle. You will actually get to see your machine being used at 100% of it's capacity.
  • Playing Messiah uses every part of your PC to it's fullest potential including the CD-ROM and hard drive, ensuring they are all pushed to their maximum output during gameplay.
  • Two and half years in the making. The Messiah engine has unlimited sound, unlimited graphics, unlimited level size and unlimited animations.
  • It feels like no other game you have played before.

Characters

  • POSSESS and control over 40 different characters. From giant Armored Behemoths to tiny Rats, all they need is a living soul and to turn their back to you, and they're all yours.
  • Characters are real, you can hurt them or help them. They will run when scared, and attack in groups. They will use the world against you to track you down.
  • Prostitutes, Cops, Behemoths, Priests, Bouncers, Bondage Dancers, Pimps, Gigolos, Sewer People, Vagrants, Welders, Nuclear Technicians, Riot Police, Bar Tenders, Medics, you play as them all.

Weapons

  • Over 10 unique and devastating weapons including flame throwers, pump action shot guns, machine guns, bazookas, rocket propelled harpoon guns, buzzsaws, ice guns, and mines.
  • Incredibly accurate weapons and realistic damage to characters and targets.
  • Dead bodies stay around until you join them.

As Messiah, you rid the world of sinners by possessing the bodies of prostitutes, criminals and other assorted scum. In the apocalypse no one just lies down and dies. Injured enemies cling to life trying to escape by crawling away in agony. Later levels allow you to use the genetically engineered bodies.

Problem:
How does a pudgy Messiah with only a diaper for defense gain access through a locked security door?

Solution:
Possess a host... Hmm, the worker can't leave the area either.
But he can lower a 5 ton tank on a nearby worker and cause a big commotion.
Then he can possess the medic sent in to aid the crushed worker, who does have security access.

Game Industry News, by Chris Roberts

"I have to admit, I am not going to stop playing Half-life for Messiah, but that's mainly because Messiah does not have a multiplayer option. Beyond that, I rate it as an impressive step into the next generation of FSPs. The graphics are well thought out, and the characters appear to actually move around whether you are near them or not. The only serious negatives are the lack of a multiplayer aspect and the religious undertones of the game, if that sort of thing bothers you."
