News from Alan Thorn today . . . . . . . .
"Just thought I would let you know that Mamba Games have announced that they will be publishing Wittard:
New screenshots will be available within three weeks."
Here's the low down . . . . 'Developed by Wax Lyrical Games the atmospheric adventure game is the first title to be released by programmers Alan Thorn and Marlies Maalerink and will be published under the Odyissia adventure brand within LMG.
The game is due to be released in October 2010 and adds to the already substantial release schedule for the adventure brand for 2010.
Jason Codd of LMG explains why he sees this game as a real credit to the 2010 schedule:
"After playing through the demo we were really impressed with what Wax Lyrical had started to develop and it fitted our schedule perfectly. The atmosphere of the game is a real chiller and it will give point and click adventure fans something different to the norm. We are delighted to add Nemesis of Ragnarok to our catalogue of great adventure games and look forward to working with Wax Lyrical over the forth coming months".
The eccentric architect Baron Wittard has built something really Special: a city inside a building. This monumental pleasure dome, called 'The Utopia', it features 100 apartments, a shopping mall, and hundreds of offices and leisure facilities, all under one roof.
The grand opening of Utopia was supposed to have been two years ago. That event never happened. Since then a chain of mysterious events have occurred people have gone missing and electromagnetic disturbances have caused havoc: Utopia reminds abandoned and silent.
Armed with only a camera and a torch, you must journey to Utopia alone to explore its winding corridors, its secret passageways, and its gloomy halls. Local townspeople say Wittard holds a terrible secret .They speak fearfully of someone or something malevolent lurking at the city- they say it is waiting and growing in power- they say time is running out……
*Non-linear game play: explore at your own pace
*Experience urban decay in high resolution graphics
*Eerie and mysterious soundtrack with full musical score
*Discover a massive world in First Person Perspective
*Use skill and cunning to search for clues and solve puzzles
*A gentle but gripping plot packed with twists and turns
Alan Thorn of Wax Lyrical explains a bit more about the game:
"It can be both an enchanting and enthralling experience to explore the abandoned remains of an old building that time forgot. It has been our intention at Wax Lyrical Games to recreate and dramatise that experience in a video game- Wittard embodies this intention. It throws the gamer into a massive and mysterious ruin in the middle of nowhere. Then it leaves them there unaided to explore its darkest depths and to solve its unnerving mysteries".
Wittard: Nemesis of Ragnarok will be released world wide.'
