LYON, FRANCE– 8 November 2007– Atari today announced that a playable PC demo of My Horse and Me is available now for download at www.atari.com/myhorseandme. Published worldwide by Atari, My Horse and Me for PC, Wii and Nintendo DS™ encapsulates the atmosphere and thrills of the equestrian sporting lifestyle in a unique video game experience. The only game with the exclusive worldwide license from the FEI (International Equestrian Federation), My Horse and Me is scheduled for European release on 23 November 2007.
The demo gives players a taste of the three main gameplay elements in My Horse and Me for horse fans to enjoy: grooming and customisation of your horse, fun mini-games to improve your riding skills, and competitive arena tournaments set in a variety of charmingly realised indoor and outdoor locations around the globe. The mini-game in the demo sees the rider catching butterflies around a course against the clock, while the competition event is Les 9 de Valmont, an outdoor jumping course where the player’s timing and control will be tested as they aim for a clear round and victory.
My Horse and Me is a faithful and enchanting video game realisation of the world of equestrian sports. Published by Atari and developed by W!Games for Wii and PC and by Mistic for NDS, My Horse and Me, is scheduled for release on 23 November 2007.
