CYPRESS INHERITANCE LAUNCHES ON iTUNES, APP STORE AND GOOGLE PLAY

LAKE MARY, FL – FEBRUARY 7, 2013 – Cypress Inheritance LLC today announced the official launch of the “ Cypress Inheritance ” mobile game on iTunes , the App Store and Google Play .  Powered by Epic Games’ award-winning Unreal Engine 3 for Android devices, “Cypress Inheritance” uniquely combines immersive gameplay, unparalleled graphics and customized storytelling to deliver a groundbreaking user experience on Apple and Android gaming platforms.

 

“Cypress Inheritance“ immerses players into an exciting world of adventure that tests survival skills while engaging their senses as they quest to unlock the mysteries of the Cypress Mansion and its hidden wealth.  Facing a variety of challenges that change with each session, players attempt to achieve an inheritance by battling and outwitting the fiercely protective artificial intelligence that controls the puzzling mansion.  The mobile game is the first installment of the Cypress Inheritance game series, which is currently developing PC and Mac versions of the title for release Fall/Winter 2013.

Created with the hallmarks of a AAA title and a cinematic approach to storytelling, “Cypress Inheritance“ distinguishes itself as a mobile game by incorporating first-class sound design, a full orchestral score by award-winning composer Dani Donadi and a rich voiceover performance by internationally renowned film and television actress Saffron Burrows.

"What is fantastic about ‘Cypress Inheritance’ is that it appeals to people of all ages; from children; to sophisticated gamers; to even those who are dipping their toes into this world for the first time,” said Burrows. “The game is compelling on many levels:  visually, emotionally and cerebrally.  In the way that a good novel or film can grip the imagination, ‘Cypress Inheritance’ really satisfies all the senses," added Burrows.

“Epic Games has been instrumental in helping us build a family-friendly title that takes mobile gaming to a completely new level,” said Nathan Nazario, Sr. VP, Marketing & Communications, Cypress Inheritance LLC.  “The robust tools in Unreal Engine 3 have enabled us to create a matchless immersion experience that offers players of all ages extraordinary interactivity, stunning graphics and freedom of choice that has yet to be enjoyed on a mobile device, until now.” 

“‘Cypress Inheritance’ delivers suspenseful gameplay that appeals to audiences looking for exhilarating action and challenging thrills in a distinctive, non-lethal game environment,” said Joe Kreiner, head of North American licensing at Epic Games. 

“Cypress Inheritance” is available for download from iTunes and is compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), iPod touch (5th generation) and iPad.  The mobile game requires iOS 4.0 or later.  “Cypress Inheritance” is also available for download from Google Play and is compatible with select Android devices including Samsung Galaxy Note™ 2, Samsung Galaxy S 3 and Samsung Galaxy Tab™ 2.  Android 2.3 or above (4.0.3 recommended) and 1 GB Ram are required.
