SEATTLE – October 20, 2010 – Casual game lovers rejoice! Big Fish Games today announced the release of Drawn: Trail of Shadows, the highly anticipated third chapter in the cinematic Drawn adventure game series that can be played on PC, Mac and iPad. More immersive than even its predecessors, Drawn : The Painted Tower and Drawn: Dark Flight, Drawn: Trail of Shadows, invites players to become part of a spellbinding story as they journey through painted worlds into the distant past.

Further refining the series, Drawn: Trail of Shadows features an award- winning and unique 2D/3D hybrid world, complete with an interactive and evolving digital pop-up book and numerous magical paintings to explore. Simultaneously launching on both PC and Mac and including the addition of a new painted world, this third installment Collector’s Edition is sure to appeal to both fans of classic adventure games and new audiences alike.

“With Drawn: Trail of Shadows, our in-house Studio team wanted to evolve the way we present the world of Drawn while maintaining the series’ critically acclaimed production values,” said Patrick Wylie, vice president of Big Fish Studios. “We’ve created a world with depth that allows you to feel as if you’re navigating through the paintings, and an interactive pop-up book that reveals the story as you play. These features combined with the series’ award-winning art and music once again establish Drawn as one of the world’s premiere PR game series.”

For the first time in the series, Drawn: Trail of Shadows features native widescreen support and a beautifully painted 2D world set in a 3D environment. Players will be pulled ever deeper into the Drawn universe, learning the origin of Iris’ kingdom while interacting with its myriad unique puzzles. PC and Mac adventure game fans of all levels will marvel at the striking cinematic presentation, with environments ranging from enchanted gardens to slumbering giants guarding snowy expanses. This Collector’s Edition also includes the game’s original score, concept art and an additional chapter, allowing players to explore the Calligrapher’s Caves – and the enchanted chalkboard contained within.

Designed from the ground up for any level of player, Drawn: Trail of Shadows multiple hint systems and clues on how to progress through the game ensure that all players – novice to expert – can finish the quest. The hints will range from a nudge in the right direction to specific steps on exactly what needs to be done.
