Anachronox is a science-fiction role-playing game with a heavy emphasis on action and combat. Players have a third-person view of the 3D-rendered main characters Sylvester "Sly" Boots and his partner Stiletto. The two are on a quest to discover the fate of a long-dead alien race, in hopes that the futuristic technology these aliens may have left behind might help prevent an imminent danger that threatens to destroy the entire universe as we know it.
Players can control up to three characters at a time and the game features hundreds of creatures and NPCs with which the heroes can interact. The game runs in "real-time" but is easily paused at any point so that players can plan combat strategies and absorb important plot points and story details. Anachronox offers a "KidInstall" feature, which installs the game with preteen appropriate settings, leaving out some of the more mature content while keeping the story intact and the game play fully functional. ~ T.J.
