Ceville: Profile of a Tyrant!

Worms / Bracknell, 17th February 2009

Kalypso Media today release the profile of the diminutive but evil tyrant Ceville, the star of Kalypso Media’s upcoming point&click adventure Ceville.

Name: Ceville

Age: 48

Profession: Professional Tyrant

Hobbies: Torture, abusing the peasants.

Ceville enjoyed a carefree youth as the son of the renown tyrant Ceville Senior. Nothing gave young Ceville more pleasure than spending his days building torture chambers with his wooden blocks and throwing his dolls into prison. Whenever these pursuits began to pall he amused himself by maltreating the staff with his little pranks, much to his father's delight. A chip off the old block…

Precocious, little Ceville was soon attending seminars such as "Tyranny The Fun And Easy Way" and "A True Reign Of Evil In Just 24 Hours" in preparation for his future career as dictator. It was at this point that he conceived his theory of "Ceville Justice", also known as the Ceville Decision. In this form of justice both sides of a disagreement are punished equally. Twice as much fun for Ceville!

One fine day, as young Ceville was in the process of locking the cat Kitty into the cellar for a few days of punishment, news reached him of his father's totally unexplained disappearance. Since that fateful day Ceville has ruled Faeryanis with an iron fist, where he delights in thinking up new ways of abusing his innocent subjects.

Soon the dynamic young dictator was overworked cooking up evil plans and was forced to hire a helper, Basilius. Soon Basilius was seldom far from Ceville's side, providing him with tips in his role as the wise advisor. As is the usual lot with tyrant’s assistants everywhere, he too was treated poorly.

However, one fine day, as Ceville sat high upon his throne and exercised his widely feared Ceville Justice as he had done so many times before ...

Ceville will be published in the UK by Kalypso Media on the 27th of February at a retail price of£29.99. For further information please visit our website: www.ceville-game.com
