Today, publisher Lace Mamba Global confirms the UK and Irish retail release date for the upcoming PC adventure game Haunted,the latest adventure game by German developers Deck 13: the game is now scheduled to hit the shelves on May 25th, 2012.
Following the traces of her long-lost and probably dead sister, Mary encounters the obscure Professor Lindsey Ashford and her axe-wielding henchman Ethan. And when Mary finds out that she suddenly can see and talk to ghosts, she embarks upon a wild quest that ends with the revelation of a terrible secret of her own past – which could lead to the destruction of the spirit world and the overall cosmic balance overall.
What starts out as a search for Mary’s supposedly dead sister ends in a furious chase across the world of ghosts right in the middle of ancient 19th century London.
Haunted is a spooky comedy adventure game with lots of dark humour, developed by Deck 13, creators of award-winning adventure games like Jack Keane and the Ankh series. Haunted takes players on a wild treasure hunt through dozens of locations in old London, Scotland, Transylvania and a goldfish glass. The young female protagonist encounters ghosts as friends as well as foes; up to six accompanying ghost characters will help Mary and the player to solve the game’s puzzles. For special puzzles, players can even switch to a werewolf.
Haunted features up to 50 characters. The orchestral music score has been composed by the award-winning studio Dynamedion.
