NEW YORK&LONDON-February 25, 2010-I-play,Oberon Media's publishing division and the world's leading multi-platform casual games publisher, today announced that its latest game release based on a best-selling author - Nora Roberts Vision in White - is now available for PC download. Based on the wildly popular Bride Quartet novel series, of which the first two books have more than 1 million copies in print, the Vision in White game seamlessly integrates the familiar plotlines to deliver the most interactive Nora Roberts experience to date.
In this refreshingly romantic seek-and-find game, players take on the role of wedding photographer Mackensie 'Mac' Elliott. They must help Mac find romance while running Connecticut's premier wedding-planning company with her three best friends. Through 41 beautifully designed locations, unique mini-games including floral arrangements, cake decorating and photography, and two modes to customize gameplay, players will become a part of the story like never before.
"It's tremendous fun to see Vision in White translated to the video game medium," said Roberts. "I often enjoy playing casual games and know how addicting they can be! I'm looking forward to providing readers another way to experience my stories."
Vision in White is the first of four novels in Roberts' Bride Quartet, which is the latest book-based game series published by I-play. I-play also publishes games based on James Patterson's highly-successful Women's Murder Club book series and an Agatha Christie game series. These releases have generated more than 40 million downloads and have underscored Oberon Media's goal to provide high-quality game franchises across multiple platforms.
