Kalypso forge a deal for "AGON– The Lost Sword Of Toledo"

5th December 2007

" AGON– The Lost Sword of Toledo" will be released in the UK by Kalypso Media Ltd and Hungarian developer Private Moon Studios. Following on from the previous adventure, "AGON– the Mysterious Codex", the game takes place in the historical Toledo and sees the player unravelling an age-old mystery which underlies the calm atmosphere of the historical Spanish town.

Professor Samuel Hunt, arrives in the picturesque Spanish city, where time seems to slow down, and is intrigued by the narrow streets, squares with an atmosphere of the Middle Ages, the silence and calm. But does this peaceful atmosphere conceal some longstanding dark secrets? A young man, formerly known for his honesty, has recently been caught stealing treasures, and now some local families have renewed wounds of past grievance, the secrets of which have been taken to the grave. However, if the professor is to find the answers he seeks, he is compelled to unravel the entangled threads. Professor Hunt finds a mysterious music box, an iron door in the church which has not been opened for a hundred years, and a series of strange letters - but will the Lost Sword of Toledo be found?

The Lost Sword of Toledo is the fourth episode and the second full-disc instalment in the AGON adventure game series. It can be enjoyed as a standalone game, with new characters and original puzzles. The new title has been given a range of additional features, including more detailed, manually animated characters, more realistic graphics with new 3D effects, and dialogue-oriented storytelling, while still retaining the features of the previous instalment; integrated, story-based puzzles, authentic surroundings and background music with local elements.

About Private Moon Studios

Private Moon Studios is a small but professional multimedia development studio in Hungary, whose members are realizing with AGON their long cherished dream. The team, consisting mainly of devoted adventure gamers, decided to tell a fourteen-episode saga in an interactive way, in which the story is woven around board games of a mystic origin and a mysterious codex. Private Moon, which has gained an excellent reputation in Hungary in the past ten years published the first episode of AGON in September 2003, the initial steps of which we could take as Professor Samuel Hunt among the walls of the British Museum in London a hundred years ago. The London scenes were followed by adventures in Lapland and Madagascar in the 1st CD instalment of the game, The Mysterious Codex. The story of the professor continues in the soon to be released Lost Sword of Toledo.
