HELP COSETTE ESCAPE FROM THE THENARDIER IN THE VIDEO GAME BASED ON VICTOR HUGO’S MASTERPIECE

Montreuil, 7 march 2013. Rediscover a French literature masterpiece through Anuman Interactive’s video game "Les Misérables: Cosette’s Fate", available on iPad then PC, Mac, iPhone and Android devices. This adventure and hidden objects game is published in the Microïds collection – Games for All.

Montfermeil, France, in the year of our Lord 1826. Fantine leads a poor life and tries to survive by any means. She has no other choice but to let the Thénardier be in charge of her little girl, Cosette, so she can find a job in the city. Unfortunately, the Thénardier are spiteful innkeepers who take unfair advantage of her and mistreat her. The players embody Cosette and try to escape from those mean innkeepers.

Several films (over 50), plays, cartoons and musicals have adapted “Les Misérables”, one of the world’s most famous novels. Cosette’s story gives a glimpse at the Beginning of the XIXth century in France and has reached several generations. Today, Anuman Interactive offers the opportunity to actively take part in the social ascension of that poor girl, by reaching various goals requiring observation, exploration and deduction skills.

"Les Misérables: Cosette’s Fate" stands as the first title of a new generation of adventure and hidden objects games including more animation, interactivity, capacities and incorporating an interface for an optimized experience. Players can now move freely from one scene to the next to gather or combine objects and progress in the game. For instance, they will have to put logs in the fireplace to warm up a basin filled with resin and use the melted glue to fix a broken plate before the Thénardier return.

The players will also regularly solve multiple minigames (reassemble torn documents, reorganize Russian dolls or glue broken objects, just like a jigsaw). Once those puzzles are solved, the players can unlock the situation or bring together Cosette’s broken doll to cheer her up in her hard life.

When the players are stuck, an integrated help will punctually guide them with the next move to make.

To meet the fans expectations, several facts about the novel and its writer are scattered throughout the adventure. The players will have to pay close attention to learn more.

"Les Misérables: Cosette’s Fate" is now available on iPad and soon on iPhone, PC, Mac and Android devices in French, English, Japanese, German, Italian and Spanish.
