Monday 25th June - Hampshire, UK/.. Nina Kalenkow would look good even in a potato sack. However, for Secret Files 3, Animation Arts tailored several different outfits for their shapely red-haired adventurer – none of them made of burlap.
Nina has her first appearance in Secret Files 3 in the most meaningful dress a woman could possibly wear: a bridal gown. But she wouldn't be Nina if she had opted for a fairy princess dress. How could she possibly get herself to the church on time riding her bike with yards of tulle getting caught in the spokes, causing the bride to kiss the asphalt instead of her groom? Therefore, Nina picked a short white number that gives her freedom of movement. Hopefully not because she's planning to make a run for it when she approaches the altar…
At home, especially while still in bed, Nina likes to be comfortable, so she sleeps in a brief top and slip. How was she to know a special commando unit would burst through her door before breakfast?
As always when she has conspiracies to uncover and mysterious phenomena to examine, Nina once again sticks to her blue jeans in the third installment of the successful series, combining them with a tank top and a brown leather jacket. Following the disappearance of Max, her fiancé, her first destination is a mysterious excavation site in Turkey...

And what role do the guardians play in all this?
About Secret Files 3
The classic point & click adventure Secret Files 3 from developer Animation Arts features a movie-quality storyline and a great variety of locations, among other things. The new game follows the tradition of its popular predecessors Secret Files: Tunguska and Secret Files 2, combining a gripping story with entertaining gameplay, logical puzzles and gorgeous graphics. This third installment is supported by an experienced team of authors from NEOS Film, who have already successfully worked on TV and movie productions and are now called upon to help develop the plot, drama, and progress of the characters. The Bavarian FilmFernsehFonds sponsored this cooperation as part of its games support program.
"As before, Secret Files 3 will offer adventure gamers clever, but never unfair, puzzles as well as new locations – all wrapped in a thrilling story.
"Following the success of the first two Secret Files games and the equally popular Lost Horizon, we are very pleased that, together with Koch Media, we now get to realize Secret Files 3 as well," says Marco Zeugner, CEO at Animation Arts. "Supported by a trio of professional authors, we are going to send Nina and Max off on a truly exciting adventure."
The NEOS Film team has been involved in the development of storylines for computer games for about two years. "Developing storylines for movies or TV is quite different from doing the same for games. We all really enjoy a challenge like our creative input for this continuation of the Secret Files series. After all, we are not only movie lovers, but enthusiastic gamers as well," says Andreas Atzwanger, CEO at NEOS Film.
Secret Files 3 is scheduled to be released for PC on 14th September 2012.
