Kalypso media UK today announce signing world-wide rights to Jack Keane with 10tacle:
Jack Keane is an amusing, action-packed Point‘n’ Click Adventure with loads of allusions to well-known computer games and classic movies. Players assume the role of daring adventurer Jack and accompany him in his travels during the early colonial era. Once again short on cash, no sooner does Jack accept a relatively innocent assignment than he's up against a truly mad scientist and his army of trained apes. The game takes Jack to settings such as London, Capetown and the jungles of India - and he wouldn't be Jack if he didn't run into shifty characters wherever he goes... Jack Keane is due for release in March 2008
Jonathan Hales, Managing Director for the UK branch of Kalypso Media UK Ltd commented:“ This is a great opportunity for us. To have the rights to publish such a popular title in so many territories will really give us the ability to spread our wings and establish strong links with our current and potential overseas partners.”
Frank Holz, Director Marketing&Sales, 10TACLE STUDIOS AG:“ We are glad that we can continue our success story with Jack Keane together with Kalypso Media. The funny Adventure has already received numerous awards in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and we are looking forward to convince the players, press and distributors in UK as well with the charm and wit of our unique hero.”
