(San Francisco, CA and Karlsruhe, Germany) August 10, 2012 -- TopWare Interactive and Alkemi Games™ today announced Transcripted, their latest puzzle-based shooter, which is scheduled to release on Steam® later this month, has gone gold. Transcripted will feature AlienFX and an exclusive Alienware in-game level as the result of a recent partnership agreement with the longtime purveyor of high-end gaming machines.
Transcripted’s already visually stunning, audibly soothing, and cognitively challenging gameplay is dramatically enhanced with the inclusion of AlienFX. Full game immersion is achieved as the Alienware lighting system changes to match each color of pseudo-DNA held by the Nano-Probe. It even becomes an advanced warning system as it gently pulses in sync with the Nano Probe’s energy level, climaxing to a frantic oscillation as its energy levels drop to critical levels.
Transcripted is not only novel in its genre-breaking gameplay- which mixes classic match-three puzzle elements with retro arcade shooter fun- but also in its learning curve. The game features independently variable puzzle/shooter difficulty settings, allowing quick entry for even the most novice players and a white-knuckled challenge for veterans alike.
" Transcripted finally turned out to be the unique, fun and beautiful game we had in mind," stated Alkemi Co-Founder Alain Puget.
“More tactical than your average shooter, more intense than your average puzzle-game, with Transcripted we hope, if not to establish a new genre, at least to provide a new and memorable experience for a wide range of players from casual to hardcore," said Alkemi Co-Founder Mickael Mouillé.
