"Running into a burning building" can be found on my ever-growing list, "Things I Will Never Do Because I'm a Pussy." I understand and respect the role of firefighters, whether they're braving a blaze to save the life of a child or getting a cat out of a tree. But I think I left my balls somewhere, because I can't seem to man-up enough to run into someone's flaming home. 

Good news for those of you like me -- we can finally feel the rush of what it's like to be a fire service professional with the Epicenter Studios-developed Wii title Real Heroes: Firefighters. The game is said to have an emphasis on puzzles that "mirror the challenges and on-the-fly choices" that firefighters face, using the Wii remote to really put players into the action.

Real Heroes will incorporate something Epicenter is calling "Thinking Fire" technology, which will make the blaze come to life, seemingly attacking structures and potential victims, as well as the firefighters themselves. No word on whether there will be a "heated" boss battle against a Class C fire with flame arms. 

Real Heroes: Firefighters is set for a 2009 release.

Conspiracy Entertainment Partners with Epicenter Studios to Distribute Wii 'Real Heroes: Firefighters'

Conspiracy Entertainment, a developer, publisher and marketer of interactive entertainment software in North America and Western Europe, announced today that it has entered into a publishing agreement with Epicenter Studios, developer of Real Heroes: Firefighters ("Real Heroes"), the fire-fighting action game exclusively designed for the Nintendo Wii. According to the agreement, Conspiracy has the rights to market, sell and distribute Real Heroes in the US, Canada, Mexico and South America. Conspiracy expects to begin distribution in the 2nd Quarter of 2009.

Real Heroes emphasizes non-violent, game-integral puzzles that mirror the challenges and on-the-fly choices firefighters face every day. Featuring Epicenter's proprietary "Thinking Fire" technology, Real Heroes' blazes will seem almost alive as they not only attack structures, potential victims and firefighters, but also cause unexpected changes to the environments that will suddenly alter the player's options and strategies. No two scenarios will play out the same way.

"The motion sensing capability of the Wii Remote, combined with Epicenter's intuitive fire technology, equips anyone to step into the role of rookie firefighter," said Sirus Ahmadi, CEO of Conspiracy Entertainment. "Not only is this game thrilling, but its realistic action pays homage to the nation's real firefighters and is appropriate for the whole family."

Epicenter CEO Nathaniel McClure, "We are favorably impressed by Conspiracy's flexibility and industry expertise in reaching the North American marketplace. We look forward to a successful product launch next year."

Keith Tanaka, CFO of Conspiracy Entertainment, said, "We are pleased to add Real Heroes to our product line up for 2009. Designed by some of the world's top gaming producers, the early buzz on Real Heroes has been very positive. We anticipate a very busy year into 2009, including distribution of this highly-anticipated release."
