Think outside the box to unravel the Baron’s strange secret

Haarlem, The Netherlands– 12 January 2011– Videogame publisher Iceberg Interactive and Wax Lyrical, an independent game development studio committed to developing thought-provoking and unusual games, today reveal the official box art of Baron Wittard: Nemesis of Ragnarok (PC), their suspense adventure title that is scheduled for a pan-European release on February 18, 2011.

The box art features the electrical entity that haunts desolate Wittard Utopia, the life work of Baron Wittard that never reached its grand opening. The box art is accompanying this press release and can be downloaded from www.iceberg-interactive.com.

Baron Wittard: Nemesis of Ragnarok can already be pre ordered in the Iceberg Webshop ( http://www.iceberg-shop.com/baron-wittard.html) with free shipping up until the day of release.

The eccentric architect Baron Wittard has built something really special: a city inside a building. This monumental pleasure dome, called 'The Utopia', features 1000 apartments, a shopping mall, and hundreds of offices and leisure facilities. All under one roof. Its grand opening was supposed to have been two years ago. That event never happened. A chain of mysterious events has now left the Utopia abandoned and silent. People have gone missing. Electromagnetic disturbances are increasing. These happenings all point to Wittard's desolate Utopia. Armed with only a camera and a torch, you must journey there alone to explore its winding corridors, its secret passageways,  and its gloomy halls. Local townspeople say Wittard kept a terrible secret. They speak fearfully of someone or something malevolent lurking at his city.  They say it is waiting and growing in power. They say time is running out...
