FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Amsterdam/New York— 13th of August, 2009 -- Playlogic Entertainment, Inc. (Nasdaq OTC: PLGC.OB), an independent worldwide publisher of entertainment software, announced today the two additional characters available in Fairytale Fights at its launch later this year.
As well as featuring the delightful Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White characters, players will also be able to take on the mantel of The Naked Emperor, or swap beans with the famous Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk.
Based on the lead character from Hans Christian Andersen’s The Emperor’s New Clothes, the Naked Emperor is not unlike his Fairytale namesake. Dressed to impress in his birthday suit no less, he’ll skillfully manage to avoid revealing too much as he tears his way across the Fairytale Kingdom in search of fame and fortune.
Jack (from Jack and the Beanstalk) is quite a naive young lad, however he has been known to have sleighed a few giants in his time! Continuously on the look-out for treasures, Jack is an adventuring sort with a keen eye for the more bloodthirsty quest.
Both Jack and the Naked Emperor will join Little Red Riding Hood and Snow White as all 4 characters set about on their quest to regain their lost fame and fortune from the fairytale kingdom.
Based on the Unreal Engine 3, Fairytale Fights® is a truly twisted hack’n’slash platform adventure from Playlogic Game Factory. Players assume the role of a much-loved fairytale character, whose glory days have long since passed. While embarking on a seemingly innocent journey to save the fairytale world from certain disaster, players traverse a series of colourful and enthralling levels filled to the brim with action-packed combat, fairytale-style storylines and loads of blood. Luckily, many different weapons lay strewn throughout the fairytale kingdom, which players can use to slice and dice their way through swathes of cute fluffy bunnies and imposing enemies.
“Fairytale Fights is the creative brainchild of our talented development team at Playlogic Game Factory and that’s why we wanted it to be the first next-gen title that Playlogic builds in-house from the ground up,” said Rogier Smit, executive vice president for Playlogic.“The game combines a truly unique storyline and fantasy environment with simple intuitive controls to offer players a whole new level of bloody slice-and-dice gaming.”
Playlogic’s proprietary in-house technology makes Fairytale Fights® the first game ever in which players can truly dynamically slice through 3D models in real-time! Playlogic Game Factory has also developed a volumetric liquid system, granting liquids realistic properties. Blood will splatter across surrounding trees and leaves, and players will even have the ability to skid through puddles of blood left by fallen foes.
Fairytale Fights® features state-of-the art graphics, numerous characters and dozens of missions, as well as a variety of online and offline co-op capabilities. Fairytale Fights will be out on Xbox 360® and PLAYSTATION®3 this fall.
