Game Description:Maximum Surge was a videogame project for the FMV gaming company Digital Pictures. The game was another attempt at bringing movie-level production to gaming for the company, which believed and relied heavily on the limited gaming format. The game starred Yasmine Bleeth and Walter Koenig, and told of a computer hacker doing digital battle with the net police and a master computer called Drexel. Produced in 1996, the game was doomed to be a casualty of the FMV fallout after too many pointless titles -- according to Digital Pictures founder and head Tom Zito, the game was due to utilize several breakthroughs in FMV technology that'd take it beyond all the issues of previous FMV games (with interactive frames of video remapped on the fly), but it was not completed before Digital Pictures went out of business.
Maximum Surge was instead, however, turned into a full movie that played on cable television.
