Warsaw, Poland (DATE) - GOG.com ( http://www.gog.com), the one-stop shop for DRM-Free downloadable games, is bringing a touch of French sensibilities by adding one of the most beloved classic action-adventure games to its catalog with the exclusive inclusion of Little Big Adventure, also known as Relentless: Twinsen’s Adventure, for $5.99 today and will be releasing the sequel Little Big Adventure 2 (Twinsen’s Odyssey) for just $5.99 as well in a few weeks. Both of these titles will be released fully localized into English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
Once called “Best Game in the World” by the on the cover of French gaming magazine Joystick, Little Big Adventure sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide in its first release. Little Big Adventure introduces players to a world where evil forces hold sway and they, as Twinsen, must travel across the planet to fight the forces of the diabolical FunFrock. In the sequel, Twinsen must fight back against the treacherous Esmers to make his home planet safe again. Combining action and adventure, the devilish with the preposterously fun, and imaginative storytelling with solid gameplay, the arrival of these two games on GOG.com not only brings a much loved series back to life for hundreds of thousands of gamers, but also represents the completion of a personal goal for managing director Guillaume Rambourg.
" Little Big Adventure is one of my favorite games and reviving it was actually on the top of my to-do list when I joined GOG and I could not imagine seeing it released elsewhere! Little Big Adventure features one of the most unique and charming universes ever created to date. Very few games in the history of gaming managed to define such a wonderful alchemy between musics, plot, characters and graphics. I am absolutely thrilled to see GOG giving a well-deserved second youth to Little Big Adventure and I hope nowadays’ PC gamers will give this gem a try!"
Co-creator of the Little Big Adventure games Didier Chanfray is also pleased to see his games on GOG.com, saying “ The rerelease of LBA is to me a fresh start. I have just created a new company to produce quality games with a true artistic approach. For me, Little Big Adventure is an example of the kind of game that I want to make in the future: innovative, fun, and full of personality."
“ I chose GOG as our exclusive world-wide digital distributor for two main reasons. One: I have been a customer of GOG.com for a while now and have been impressed with the quality of their releases and the excellent presentation of their website. Two: every time I meet someone from GOG, it is a fan of the Little Big Adventure series, so there’s an obvious overlap of audiences here!”
