NEW YORK, LONDON - April 29, 2010 - I-play, Oberon Media's publishing division and the world's leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today announced that Deadtime Stories is now available for PC download. From award-winning game designer Jane Jensen (Agatha Christie and Women's Murder Club series, Dr. Lynch: Grave Secrets), Deadtime Stories brings players on a journey back in time to reveal a tangled web of deception, betrayal, and unspeakable secrets. Offering a fresh and extraordinary twist on the popular seek-and-find mystery-adventure game, Deadtime Stories features a unique and uncanny art style, laced with paranormal activity and ghastly revelations.
Based on the real-life New Orleans ghost story and the disturbing tale of 19th-century socialite-turned-serial-killer Delphine LaLaurie, Deadtime Stories first invites players into a gothic cemetery run by Edward Blackgate, your guide through the spirit world. Explore 26 eerie locations brought to life through amazing artwork and brain-bending puzzles as players free trapped spirits, cast spells and unlock secrets hidden in the paranormal world to reveal the story of a misguided voodoo queen, Jessie Bodeen.
In this cryptic adventure, players are drawn into the story through reflections in the spirit world as they discover hidden objects, forage for mysterious plants and untangle spirit riddles to cast potent spells and overcome obstacles. Through the game's engaging voiceover narrative, animated scenes and cameos of ghosts, players will become part of the story like never before.
Deadtime Stories is now available at Iplay.com.
