BioShock is a one-person action game that was originally developed by 2K Boston and 2K Australia. The PC version was released by 2K Games on August 21, 2007. The Mac version was released by Feral Interactive on October 7, 2009.
Though BioShock is more than two years old, it’s quite a unique game to date. The game constantly plays old music from 60’s. During the game, there are announcements where they talk as if the time were 60’s like the following.
What’s the matter, Mary? You look like you could use a boost!
I don’t feel so great. I’m dizzy, I’m nauseous, and sometimes I’m even seeing things that aren’t there.
Some foes wear a bizarre mask. It really is a cool game though you won’t get the feeling of having fun for the first few hours or so.
One night in 1960, Jack finds himself on board an airplane. He is thinking about his parents, who once said how proud they were of him. Then, in a matter of a minute or so, the airplane crashes in the middle of the Atlantic ocean.
Jack somehow survives the crash. And he manages to reach a small island of some sort. There’s a building barely illuminated by several torches. As soon as he enters this building, the door closes itself right behind his back, and music starts. He then carefully takes stairs. When he enters a small, round room and pulls a lever, the room itself quickly goes under the water and stops at about 18 fathoms (108 ft) below the surface. Then a short movie about a business tycoon named Andrew Ryan starts. After a while, the room containing Jack starts moving again and travels around an underwater city called Rapture.
