Daedalic Entertainment: Publisher Branches out into Film Production with New Documentary

For Immediate Release

Hamburg/Germany: October 14, 2008. With "An Inconvenient Game", a full-length documentary that accompanies the production of the ambitious adventure game A New Beginning, German games publisher Daedalic Entertainment takes an active role in film production for the first time. The movie will premiere in Hamburg/Germany on October 22nd, playing at the prestigious Abaton cinema.

"The production of our first movie allows to us to reach and inspire new audiences," said Carsten Fichtelmann, managing director of Daedalic Entertainment. "Our understanding of a modern entertainment company expands across all media, allowing us to tell our stories in many different forms."

"An Inconvenient Game", a co-production of Daedalic and cool-concepts media, takes a look behind the scenes of the games industry and follows the production of the eco-thriller adventure game A New Beginning. An open-minded look at the inner workings of an independent game developer and publisher, the movie also tackles the issue of global climate change in interviews with scientists.

A New Beginning is a cinematic, interactive eco-thriller. In the classic adventure game an impending global climate cataclysm threatens the world, in a story ripped from today’s headlines, dealing with the defining issue of our time. At locations all around the globe, players will have to try and stem the tide– with the whole world hanging in the balance. Players take control of protagonists Bent and Fay to explore the detailed, hand-painted backgrounds and interact with more than 30 hand-animated characters rendered in a realistic 2D style. The ambitious adventure game project is in development for PC, Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii.
