CAPTAIN MORGANE - BRINGING THE 17TH CENTURY PIRATE INFESTED CARIBBEAN TO LIFE

NEWS RELEASE

20 th January 2012

Wizarbox are well-known for bringing premier adventure games to life. Recently completing Gray Matter and following up So Blonde with Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle on the Playstation 3, PC, Wii and DS, they know what makes a really great game!

Teaming up again with BAFTA nominated adventure game writer, Steve Ince, they’ve created a game that captures the essence of what it was like 300 years ago in the tropical but deadly waters of the Caribbean.

Fabien Bihour, Wizarbox CEO said, “We wanted to build on the success of So Blonde with a character we grew to love - Morgane Castillo. But more than that, we wanted to build a world which was a worthy partner to Steve’s great storyline and script. As a studio we’re experienced in creating adventure games and wanted to give the player as many potential directions and activities as possible. We had to develop incredibly detailed interactive environments and high definition enabled us to do just that.”

The game was not only designed to take advantage of the Sony Playstation 3’s powerful graphics engine, but also its Move TM camera and controllers. Fabien continues, “We wanted to make the 20 hours of gameplay time as immersive as possible so using the Sony Move TM made perfect sense, especially when looking for those elusive clues!”

Julien Millet, Wizarbox project manager of the title said, “Captain Morgane was a challenge from the outset, especially in developing Morgane’s world and the cast to fill it. We have over 40 fully fleshed out characters with back stories and 50 highly detailed individual environments set over 5 islands – it’s not just an epic story, it’s an epic game in itself!”
