Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches promises a feast for lovers of ghost stories, mysteries, folklore, and puzzles.

Quote:
Got Game Entertainment LLC today announced that its first-person adventure Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches (PC) is scheduled for release in North America on October 5, 2008. Legends, myths, and magic spill into reality as an ancient battle for revenge envelopes a remote Welsh farmstead in this puzzle-rich, point-and-click adventure game. Created by Arberth Studios of West Wales, Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches brims with Celtic atmosphere in an eerie tale of the haunting of a lonely, teenage girl. Blending magic with technology, fact with myth, and fright with compassion, Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches is a feast for lovers of ghost stories, mysteries, folklore, and puzzles.


Good news despite what the press release says, they actually started shipping already. happydance EDIT: Anyone receiving their game early consider it a stroke of luck and enjoy the game. The rest will be shipping on Oct. 5th.


Quote:
Development of Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches entailed just over two years of a life-changing journey for the three team members, and we want it to give at least as much satisfaction to our players as we got from creating it, said Arberth Studios co-founder Noel Bruton. As far as we know, this is the first time the Welsh Four Branches legends have been woven into an adventure game.

Based on the classic Welsh Four Branches legends, Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches is set on the grounds of Ty Pryderi (House of Pryderi), an ancient and mystery-shrouded farmstead on the Celtic fringes of Britain. As the Sullivan family, the new owners of Ty Pryderi, embarks on renovations and restorations to their new home, daughter Rhiannon reports unexplained noises and strange visions. Are these merely the figments of an overactive imagination of a 15 year old girl or does the history of this place hold a terrible connection to a timeless struggle between man and magic? Her parents take Rhiannon away leaving Ty Pryderi to your watch and exploration, but their absence can only postpone an age-old inevitability of revenge and death,Unless you can stop it.

Rhiannon: Curse of the Four Branches will make its retail debut at $29.99 (USD) and is rated T for Teen by the ESRB for Drug Reference, Violent References.

This game is a refreshing change of pace from the recent games that were released.

It is a wonderful game, well thought out sequencing, great storyline, beautiful landscape and intriguing puzzles - with just the right touch of humor here and there.

Hope you all enjoy it as I am doing.
BTW - don't forget to feed the cat (in-game humor).

Even if you don't remember to feed the cat, there's always the little boys' room (further in game humour) lol

I had this ordered and cancelled it because I read in the reviews where there is no character intervention. I like character intervention. Do you talk to the ghosts? Do you see the ghosts or have ghost busting equipment? I am debating whether to get this game again and your answers will help me decide. Thanks in advance.

Hello Sherryah,

In 'Rhiannon', you're exploring alone. Everybody else has taken fright and left. Indeed, you will see the ghosts. They'll communicate with you. You can't talk to them because they are only trapped echoes, calling into a future they cannot comprehend. They're not just any old ghosts. You'll learn who each of them is, the tragic and malevolent circumstances that put them where they are, their history. If we've done our job right, then just like in a good movie, you'll care about and identify with the people they used to be, just as much as if you'd conversed with them. You'll realise that they represent what could happen to teenage Rhiannon on her return - and you'll want, and be able, to prevent that.

Hope that helps.

Cheers

Noel

I'm waiting for a Demo for this game before I decide to buy it. Although it does look spookey there aren't many (4) screenshots for the game. I did like the trailer though. wave
