LANGHORNE, Pa., May 13, 2009– Casual games developer and publisher eGames, Inc. (Pink Sheets: EGAM) today announced the ongoing development of The Dracula Files, a new hidden object adventure game franchise pitting a new generation of vampire hunters against the resurrected lord of the undead. With an anticipated launch in late summer 2009, versions of the first installment of The Dracula Files are currently planned for PC, Nintendo DS™, and Wii™.
“We are extremely pleased with the level of enthusiasm our publishing and portal partners have expressed for The Dracula Files since introducing early versions of the game at the Game Developers Conference,” said eGames VP Sales and Marketing Rich Siporin.“We look forward to sharing the game’s progress with casual game fans everywhere through our social media campaign.”
As part of The Dracula Files launch campaign, popular casual game review site Gamezebo.com will host a bi-weekly developer blog beginning this week. Additional updates on the game will be provided on The Dracula Files Twitter page at www.twitter.com/draculafiles and Facebook® page.
With the reemergence of the bloodthirsty count after 100 years, The Dracula Files finds the descendants of the Harker and Van Helsing families banding together once more to contest the lord of the vampires. Spanning the globe in search of cursed objects and holy relics, the reluctant heroes will face werewolves, vampires, poltergeists, and more in their quest to return Dracula to the grave forever.
“We are excited to introduce a unique spin on the Dracula legend to casual game and vampire enthusiasts everywhere,” said eGames Product Manager and designer Greg Zesinger.“Through the ongoing developer diary on Gamezebo, Twitter, and Facebook pages, we look forward to interacting with our fans and introducing them to the diabolical Vladimir Draco. We recommend gamers start sharpening their stakes and gathering garlic now, because Draco and his minions will soon be on the prowl.”
