The United States has been devastated by a mysterious plague. Within 72 hours of its appearance on the East Coast, nearly every
citizen in the entire country lay dead in its wake.
Among the shell-shocked survivors that roam the land are The Faithful, a bizarre cult that sprang up even as the plague was
decimating the population. Its demented ranks worship a mysterious entity called the BROOD and they believe they hold the key to
immunity from the plague.
Meanwhile, deep inside a military bunker, Project Nemesis is called to action. Its handful of soldiers don't know why they've been
spared from the plague's wrath but neither do they question their fates. Their orders are simple: using weapons and their own
special abilities, they are to take back their city from The Faithful, find out where the plague came from and discover the secrets
of the BROOD.
You're in charge of the Nemesis team in this real-time, tactical combat game. Heavily influenced by the X-COM series, it requires
both strategic and tactical expertise to win. The player maintains several bases of operations and send Nemesis team members to
dynamically generated battles in an effort to retake the city from the slimy aliens and their human slaves.
The tactical battlefields are an isometric, top-down view. The real-time action can be sped up, slowed down and paused to allow
the player to keep up with hectic situations. Throughout the game, the player will collect weapons and supplies, expand the
Nemesis inventory of technological goodies and uncover the secrets of The Faithful and the BROOD.
From the Manufacturer: Eidos Interactive's action/strategy title Abomination PC Game feeds on ominous visions of apocalyptic
hell - plagues sweeping the Earth, unbridled chaos as millions die and thousands more suffer as they are left to fend for
themselves in a world now devoid of law and order. From among these survivors rises The Faithful, a growing band of zealots
who have embraced the plague and chant liturgies in praise of The Brood. You and your team of eight genetically altered, super
marines are given orders to stop The Faithful and their agenda before their influence spreads. As a player you control this team,
plus a ragtag assortment of plague survivors, four at a time entering into the depths of a biological nightmare world. As you go
about your mission, you must gather intelligence, obtain technology and discover new weapons. You must be the one to free
humanity of the Abomination.
