Paris, France – March 16th 2012 –DotEmu, developer and publisher focused on bringing retro games back to life, celebrates its fifth candle this year and announces two of its 2012 mobile projects.
The Last Express travels to iOS
Created by famed game designer Jordan Mechner, best known for creating the hit franchise Prince of Persia and his early hit Karateka, The Last Express was originally released in 1997 and hailed for its interactive storytelling. This Point & Click adventure game immerses the player in 1914 aboard the Orient Express shortly before the beginning of WWI. The game employs unique gameplay mechanics and is one of the few adventure games to take place in "real time", offering more than twenty hours of play.
DotEmu and Jordan Mechner are thrilled to team up to bring back this artistic and technical masterpiece to a new audience on ubiquitous platforms.
"The Last Express is unlike any other game I've done. Its story, characters, and unique game design have stood the test of time and have won the loyalty of an exceptionally passionate and committed fan base," said Jordan Mechner, game designer. "I'm delighted that, thanks to DotEmu, a new generation of iPhone and iPad gamers will now be able to 'board' the Orient Express and immerse themselves in a deep, real-time interactive adventure across Europe on the eve of war. I can't wait!"
Acclaimed by many journalists as "best adventure game ever" the year of its release, The Last Express will be back soon on iPhone and iPad!
