Developed by Xiphias, the company that introduced the first computer graphics system to be used in television news (KNXT in Los Angeles), Soft Kill merges photo-realistic imagery and video with storytelling in a techno-thriller where rogue Japanese terrorists threaten the Alaska Pipeline, the Panama Canal, and the Malaccan Straits. Locations range from a secret U. S. Navy base in Hawaii and the north shore of Alaska to Tokyo and the royal palaces in Saudi Arabia.

The innovative gameplay system consists of seven rows of ten cells each (called the Matrix), with four storytelling modes possible: Author (basic storytelling), Point-of-View (first-person views of varying subjects or subplots), Random (play sequences within each cell), and User (create your own path through the cells). Each cell, or segment, utilizes a movie/story screen offering a visual look at the action, and a text-based information screen that provides background material relative to the story.

The term "soft kill," popularized in the 1960s, refers to the concept of non-lethal weapons of destruction and gained impetus in post-Cold War strategic planning. The proprietary Matrix Interface system design was featured in four Xiphias titles in 1993, including the Illustrated Facts series and Kathy Smith's Fat Burning System.


Imagine a high-tech attack on the United States... Imagine a unique story told in an unprecedented way. Developed by Xiphias, the company that introduced the first computer graphics system to be used in television news (KNXT in Los Angeles), Soft Kill is a unique techno-thriller based on the latest in hi-tech that explores the possibility of a world power using non-lethal warfare to bring the U.S. to its knees. Two politically opposed characters are thrown together in defense of the United States as a rogue element of the Japanese military attacks the Alaska Pipeline, the Panama Canal and the Malaccan Straits. The action explodes from a secret U.S. Navy base on Kauai to an ancient military shrine in Tokyo, from the North Shore of Alaska to the Palaces of Riayadh and the deep bowels of the United State's computer systems. Founded in a deep understanding of the vulnerability of the American infrastructure to attack and disruption, and the age-old attempts of governments to contest each other's territories of influence, this story combines high drama with photo-realistic imagery and video of secret places. The disk contains more than 70 digitized images and more than an hour of narration, which tell the story of what "nonlethal warfare" will be like in the not-so-distant future. Soft Kill owners can have the story told from different perspectives, including those of a narrator and the story's main characters. The innovative gameplay system consists of seven rows of ten cells each (called the Matrix), with four storytelling modes possible: Author (basic storytelling), Point-of-View (first-person views of varying subjects or subplots), Random (play sequences within each cell), and User (create your own path through the cells).
