Media Sunshine Slithers onto iPhone with Synthulhu

CARY, NORTH CAROLINA -- Media Sunshine, a game development studio that provides contract and consulting services to publishers and developers, today announced Synthulhu. A Lovecraftian puzzle game for the iPhone, Synthulhu was designed and produced by the husband-and-wife team of Heather Chandler and Rafael Chandler.

Do you like tentacles? What about dark gods -- do you like those? Have you ever thought about synthesizing the tissue cells of a cosmic deity, then injecting said cells into yourself? Of course you have. So have we! That's why we vacation at Innsmouth and make annual visits to the Plateau of Tsang. And that's why we've developed Synthulhu.

In Synthulhu, you manipulate six different kinds of tissue cells (Rugose, Squamous, Ichorous, Cyclopean, Tenebrous, and Zymotic) while watching out for exploding Igneous cells and screeching Necrotic cells. Victory is achieved when you cover the entire screen with a single type of cell.

While playing through Story Mode, you'll learn about the mad genius Dr. Cecaelia Ward and her ill-advised experiments. Each level that you complete will unlock dark secrets, including crepuscular revelations about Miskatonic University, Cthulhu-themed wallpapers (guaranteed to melt your brain faster than non-Euclidean geometry), and Hybrid mode, which allows you to flip through the various stages of Dr. Ward's horrendous transformations.

Synthulhu will be released in mid-2009. To learn more about the game, check out http://www.mediasunshine.com/Synthulhu .
