Brighton, September 14 th, 2011 – Lace Mamba Global is further expanding its adventure games line up: Today, the Brighton-based publisher announces that it will distribute Haunted, the latest adventure game by German developers Deck 13, in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Scandinavia and the Benelux countries. Haunted is scheduled for release in Q4 2011.
Following the traces of her long-lost and probably dead sister, Mary encounters the obscure Professor Lindsey Ashford and her axe-wielding henchman Ethan. And when Mary finds out that she suddenly can see and talk to ghosts, she embarks upon a wild quest that ends with the revelation of a terrible secret of her own past – which could lead to the destruction of the spirit world and the overall cosmic balance overall.
What starts out as a search for Mary’s supposedly dead sister ends in a furious chase across the world of ghosts right in the middle of ancient 19 th century London.
Haunted is a spooky comedy adventure game with lots of dark humour, developed by Deck 13, creators of award-winning adventure games like Jack Keane and the Ankh series. Haunted takes players on a wild treasure hunt through dozens of locations in old London, Scotland, Transylvania and a goldfish glass. The young female protagonist encounters ghosts as friends as well as foes; up to six accompanying ghost characters will help Mary and the player to solve the game’s puzzles. For special puzzles, players can even switch to a werewolf.
Haunted features up to 50 characters. The orchestral music score has been composed by the award-winning studio Dynamedion.
