The Examiner examined Soldak Entertainment's upcoming Action RPG in space Drox Operative.
Although Drox Operative is still largely built upon familiar action-RPG mechanics, your overall goal is a more strategic one, and not so much the expected endless grind to square off against a final boss monster. (Don’t worry, there are still plenty of things to murder and rob in the endless loot pursuit).
And you aren’t a hero; you’re just a greedy, selfish pig. Your ultimate goal is to ally yourself with the strongest alien race in the game. To that end you may need to help shift or defend the balance of power occasionally—which usually means siding with (and helping) whoever is kicking the most butt.
Of course, if the current butt-kicker starts to become the kickee, you may have to decide—defend your current employers, or change sides? Which option seems more profitable?
To this end you’ll need to pick and choose how and who you decide to help—possibly defending one race while sabotaging another in the interest of yet another. To the universe at large you can be a hero, a spy or a galactic rabble-rouser. Regardless, you're always out for number one (i.e. you).
