Games : Clive Barkers: Jericho

Clive Barkers: Jericho

Certain Apocryphal and Gnostic texts speak of a being created by God, in His own image, before the creation of Adam and Eve; according to legend, this being was
abandoned by its own Creator. Called the Firstborn, the creature was a singular being neither male nor female, dark nor light, both beautiful and terrible to behold.

God was
so disturbed by what He created that He banished it into the Abyss to be forever forsaken, forgotten and unloved. God then started anew and went on to create mankind,
giving the species two sexes, intellect, feelings, and love (not to mention a soul).
The Firstborn, too powerful for even God to keep from breaking into the mortal world, would make seven attempts to escape, each time taking back a piece of the earth to add
to its domain and each time sent back to the Abyss. Fragments of time and space would form layers around this domain, linked to this world in the city Al Khali. These layers
would entrap pieces of history within its walls, from the time of the ancient Sumerians to World War II. Over time, other great conquerors and civilizations would arrive to claim
the city as their own. Eventually, the city was forgotten and buried by the sands of time.
The Department of Occult Warfare was created in the 1930s to combat the supernatural and unexplained. Another purpose was to meet Nazi Germany's own research into the
paranormal. One of their most brilliant members, Arnold Leach, was recruited in 1962. However, his unscrupulous behavior and nature would eventually have him expelled.
He was marked for assassination, and although the operation appeared to be successful, it seems that he may have survived.
The Jericho Squad is sent to Al-Khali to prevent Leach from opening the breach and unleashing the Firstborn upon mankind once again.

The game begins in the present day, the backstory is explained in various dossiers in the extra section of the game and the walkthrough guide: in the present, a top-secret
U.S. Special Forces organization, the Department of Occult Warfare (DOW), is a global-spanning agency dedicated to fight the unseen paranormal & demonic forces that besiege
humanity on a daily basis, with the general population kept unaware. The top-secret combat arm of this agency are Jericho Squad Teams, a seven-man elite commando unit trained
in conventional and occult warfare, and are specially trained, mentally and physically, and equipped with magical & projectile weaponry. These teams are sent on the most dangerous
of such missions.
One of Jericho's primary directives is to be constantly on the alert for the activation of Operation Godseal; a top-secret need-to-know project that commands a Jericho team to venture
into the Pyxis and seal the Breach made in the god-holding seal.
