Valkyrie take on fallen angels

Valkyrie, the developers behind the anime-inspired RPG "Septerra Core", are currently working on a new Unreal-engined game called "Seraphim" which puts you in the role of one of the eponymous fallen angels, banished to Earth after the war in heaven which formed the basis for Milton's "Paradise Lost". The game is taking some liberties with the Judeo-Christian myth though, and in an interview on 3D News the developers explained that they were "also heavily influenced by things such as Norse, Japanese, Babylonian and other mythologies. Add a bit of modern over-the-top Anime and a wrap it around an original fantasy world and you've got Seraphim."

"The game deals with a war in heaven in which the losers are cast out into the world of mortal men. As they fell they divided into three clans, the Angels (with bird wings), the Demons (with dragon wings) and the Fey (with insectile wings). These clans now struggle for dominion over this world, ruling the mortals like gods. Each of the clans will probably have its own unique plotline of biblical proportions in the game."
