A quest for coin and cleavage!

For immediate release

 

September 2007– My lords, ladies and gentlemen, I hope you will join me in welcoming The Bard’s Tale® back to the PC!

The Bard’s Tale® is brought to you by Focus Multimedia, for the excellent value price of just£4.99. Licensed from leading software publisher Ubisoft, it joins Focus’ Revival range of PC titles.

In a legend of the Orkney Islands, take on the role of the Bard– a sardonic, opportunistic musician and adventurer, driven by carnal rather than noble pursuits. Forget your quest to save the world; you are interested in just two things– coin and cleavage.

• A third-person action/role-playing game featuring wicked humour and intriguing personalities.

• Develop your combat party by summoning a group of eccentrics and misfits to do your bidding

• A deep role-playing experience with non-linear game play resulting in many different outcomes and true replay value.

Craig Johnson, managing director of Focus Multimedia, commented:“The Bard’s Tale franchise has built up a huge following over the years, and I expect this brand new PC version to be just as popular.”

The Bard’s Tale® is available now for a suggested retail price of£4.99 including VAT, from all good retail outlets of PC software. This product, and the rest of Focus Multimedia’s range, is available to purchase direct from www.focusmm.co.uk.
