Daedalic Goes Crazy for Harvey and Edna: The Breakout

Hamburg/Germany: March 7, 2008. In a truly insane move, Daedalic Entertainment has announced Edna and Harvey: The Breakout, a new point&click adventure game that will make do without real-time particle effects, parallax occlusion mapping or integrated physics engine.

In Edna and Harvey: The Breakout, Edna wakes up in the padded cell of an insane asylum with no memory of her past or how she ended up there. Only one thing is for certain: She has been wrongfully imprisoned and will have to escape! After all, she feels entirely sane– and her speaking stuffed toy bunny Harvey wholeheartedly agrees. Together they undertake a daring breakout attempt, meeting up with numerous oddball inmates, like the Man in the Bee’s Costume or Siamese twins Hoti and Moti. But Dr. Marcel, the sinister head of the institute, will do everything in his power to stop Edna. What evil scheme is afoot? Slowly Edna begins to regain her memories of the past…

„Edna and Harvey brings back the good old days of adventure gaming, when animals were more articulate and 800x600 was considered high-definition“, commented Daedalic managing director Carsten Fichtelmann.

Edna and Harvey: The Breakout is a point&click adventure game in the vein of the genre’s classics. Backgrounds and characters are completely 2D and drawn by hand by a real person in the game’s unique cartoon style. The game’s characters range from odd to genuinely crazy– twisted

humor guaranteed! Thanks to challenging puzzles, extensive dialogues and more than 120 screens, gamers can look forward to an extraordinarily long gameplay experience.

Edna and Harvey: The Breakout is set to be released in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in May 2008 with additional territories to follow.
