What traces did Eric Simmons leave in the village at the foot of the mountain during the search for his brother? Are there any clues in the monastery? Postcards from his grueling trip, diary entries and video material speak of the dangers Eric encounters while climbing Mt. Chomolonzo.

About Cursed Mountain:

Set in the late 1980s, gamers will take on the role of a fearless mountaineer as he climbs into the Himalayas on a quest to find his lost brother. As he ascends the mountain, he encounters an ancient curse: the souls of the people who died in that region are stuck in limbo, caught in the Shadow World. Villagers, pilgrims, mountaineers and Buddhist monks– dead but not yet reincarnated– are all that is left on the mountain.

Terrible visions will disorient him, and ghosts and demons block his path. But the question remains– is his brother still alive?

Cursed Mountain is set to be released in 2009.
