Macclesfield, UK and Los Angeles, CA – Chillingo and React Entertainment today announced the immediate availability of the highly anticipated interactive adventure game, The Act. The game is now available on the Apple App Store for iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and Mac.

An entirely hand-drawn 2D animated adventure, The Act is a new interactive experience that makes gamers feel like they’re playing a classically animated movie. In The Act, players take control of Edgar - a well-meaning window washer – in his quest to rescue his brother, save his job, and woo the woman of his dreams. With stunning visuals, a captivating storyline and simple controls, The Act is a tremendous amount of fun for players of all ages.

“There is no other experience like this on the App Store; The Act is a beautiful example of what happens when interactive 2D animation meets mobile platforms,” said Chris Byatte, co-founder and co-general manager of Chillingo. “We’re excited about the tremendous response this game has received, and are thrilled to help bring it to market,” adds Joe Wee, co-founder and co-general manager of Chillingo.

“We’re proud to continue the legacy of traditionally-animated 2D games,” said Daniel Kraus, Principal and co-founder of React. “ The Act is a great example of what can be done by combining the skills of professional 2D animators with our proprietary game animation technology.”
