Cul­ture shock Worlds col­lide on Amer­ica’s streets

Games Master - - Feature On The Cover! -

Ma­chine Games has chris­tened the unique vis­ual style of The New Colos­sus as ‘Ger­mer­i­cana’. The game takes idyl­lic, ro­man­tic images of ’60s Amer­i­can cul­ture, then per­verts it with a sin­is­ter Nazi twist. This is ev­i­dent in the mis­sion where you ex­plore the streets of Roswell, New Mex­ico. It looks like a per­fect Amer­i­can street, with din­ers and big, shiny cars. But then you no­tice the swastika flags draped over the build­ings and the stormtroop­ers on pa­trol. The artists thought about how these Nazi in­vaders would sub­vert Amer­i­can so­ci­ety to fuel their own pro­pa­ganda ma­chine.
