Emily the Strange“Strangerous” for Nintendo DS/DSi is a puzzle and adventure story based around Emily the Strange and her missing kittens spanning 6 chapters and over 60 puzzles! Emily the Strange“Strangerous” is set to expand the range of games for girls in the puzzle/adventure game genre on Nintendo DS/DSi by offering female gamers the unique opportunity to play through over 50+ hours of puzzles and riddles while navigating the world of Emily. Emily the Strange“Strangerous” brings together the strengths of the Emily brand and builds upon the established puzzle/adventure games format.
Emily the Strange has been an iconic character since the early 1990's and has become a beloved counterculture icon all around the world. In her earliest years, she was a quiet but sharp-witted stranger, slinging philosophy and cultural observations in a series of hand-screened t-shirts and stickers. As her presence grew and became a standard in the cultural underground, Emily's own story began to emerge in a series of gift books, then comic-books and graphic novels, and now a novel series for young adults.“Strangerous” looks to give gamers the chance to experience Emily the Strange in a whole new environment and for the first time, to control and interact with Emily!
Emily the Strange“Strangerous” for Nintendo DS/DSi will be released in the UK 10th June. Visit http://www.emily-game.co.uk
Andy Pearson (Product Manager for Emily the Strange“Strangerous”) comments:
“At PQube we are consistently looking to offer gamers new experiences and Emily the Strange has been fascinating young teens for over 20 years– the opportunity to take Emily’s world and put it into a video game was a great chance to give gamers something new and unique.“Strangerous” also develops upon the ever expanding range of games for girls and the puzzle/adventure genre (with major titles such as Professor Layton™ leading the way)”
