Haarlem, The Netherlands– 8th November 2010– Videogames publisher Iceberg Interactive and development studio Shadow Tor Studios have announced that their upcoming horror adventure game for PC Bracken Tor: The Time of Tooth and Claw has been delayed until the 1st quarter of 2011.
Developer Matt Clark of Shadow Tor Studios said: "It is disappointing that Bracken Tor's release has had to be put back to Q1 next year, but we felt that the extra polish and additional features that we will be able to add to the title will ensure that those people who are eagerly anticipating the release will not be disappointed.
Publisher Iceberg Interactive stated that the delay was in the best interest of the many people waiting for the game and that the decision to postpone the release was taken despite very encouraging pre-orders from the trade and the public. The new Q1 release date also gives the Publisher the opportunity to release all localized versions simultaneously, thereby creating a pan-European release date.

About Bracken Tor
The Bloodmoon has risen. Something is stirring, something feral, ancient and terrible. It began many years ago, with the discovery of the livestock, ripped to shreds, torn apart and devoured. But the beast now has a taste for blood... human blood... There has been a murder - a vicious, brutal killing - out there on the mist shrouded moorland. A lone hiker has been discovered... mutilated and bloody. Our land was once the hunting ground for many vicious carnivores, but they have long since disappeared, hunted into extinction. Could those beasts somehow have returned, to seek revenge?
Solve the mystery of the Moorland beasts. As a bold journalist, looking for the next 'big story', how far would you go to grab the front page? Would you risk your life by spending a night on the mysterious moor, with only the canvas of your tent as protection? If so, Bracken Tor awaits your arrival. The stony outcrop boasts several unnerving stories; from unexplainable glowing lights, to this latest horrifying incident. Are some places cursed? Or, are they haunted by those who went before?
The past holds the key. Only through understanding the 'old ways' of the primitive people who once lived on these moors will you survive the night. You must decide what is worse... the beasts that lurk in the darkness, or the terrifying acts performed by our ancient ancestors.
