Lake Forest, CA– July 22, 2008– Whispers speak of something sinister in the shadows. The time of the Great Descent draws nigh, but the Great Tree is failing. Stripped of its source of energy, its life force is running out. The fairy Wren, whose lives are intertwined with the tree, must find a way to collect the pollen that can save The Great Tree...and themselves.
The Great Tree was critically acclaimed when it was released on the PC last December for bringing a grown-up story of good and evil together with gameplay that surprises and stunning moments that are unlike anything you'll find in any other game.
Now after months of thoughtful work, Reflexive Entertainment ( www.reflexive-inc.com) is proud to announce the Mac release of The Great Tree, putting the survival of an enchanted world into the hands of Mac users everywhere.
Drawn and painted by the same award-winning artist behind Wik: Fable of Souls, The Great Tree transports playersinto a beautifully dark world full of magic and mystery. The story of the faeries known as the Wren is one fraught with intrigue and danger. Told through drawings and poignant voice, the epic story has been carefully put together through blood, sweat and tears, to bring players a unique gaming experience.
Taking on the role of one of the Wren selected to collect pollen, players hear the story through cinematic interludes and then live it through the levels. Using magical powers and agile movements, players must avoid powerful and innovative enemies that literally come alive from the background in ways that are both exciting and horrifying.
"Watching a mushroom that you thought was just a pretty picture in the background open its eyes, change its expression and then open its mouth to try to eat you is just one of many amazing moments in this game that will startle, surprise and in the end simply amaze you," said Ion Hardie, Director of Product Development. "It contains moments that are as uniqueand enjoyable as anything I've ever seen in any game."
Featuring stunning locales, surprising enemies, and 100 tantalizing levels, The Great Tree provides an amazing gaming experience, which feels akin to an epic film than a simple game. More information, including the game's demo for Mac (and PC as well), can now be found at The Great Tree game's website: http://www.thegreattreegame.com.
