Body Harvest is a video game for the Nintendo 64 video game console developed by DMA Design (later renamed Rockstar North after the highly successful Grand Theft Auto III). It was originally intended to be an N64 launch game but was delayed due to its original publisher, Nintendo’s issues with the game’s adult theme, and eventual dropping of the title, leaving DMA to find a new publisher. It was eventually published by Gremlin Graphics in October 1998. In Body Harvest, players assume the role of a genetically engineered soldier, Adam Drake, who must investigate and eliminate an alien attack force who possesses the ability to travel through time. Possessing this technology himself, Drake must battle in five areas over a 100-year period that covers World War I-era Greece, World War II-era Java, United States in the 1960s, Siberia in the 1990s, and the near future. The game is non-linear, players can go anywhere and do anything according to game’s boundaries.
