DATE: 3rd May 2011

California, US - After much anticipation, App developer Big Ideas Digital is proud to announce the iPhone and iPad 2.0 release of Say What You See: The Collection™. Say What You See: The Collection™ is available in the App Store on now, worldwide. What’s even better is that, for a limited time only, it won’t even cost you a penny to try, as Big Ideas are making it a free download for new fans.

The Say What You See™ franchise is a fresh take on the hidden object genre, challenging players to pick out the popular bands, movies and TV shows hidden in intricately detailed, hand-painted scenes. Each scene or (iCanvas) has a unique theme, and is created by a renowned artist. To celebrate the new version of the app, we’re also releasing a new canvas, Arcade Classics, designed by a guest artist, Gary Lucken, better known to his fans as Army of Trolls. Gary specializes in pixelart reminiscent of retro arcade games, and he worked on the recent ad campaign for Tron Legacy. Gamers are sure to go nuts for his frankly awesome take on the Say What You See concept.
