Runaway: A Twist Of Fate is unveiled today in its first official teaser trailer.

To view the new screens Click Here.

Quote:
Runaway: A Twist Of Fate will be the last adventure of the famous fearless couple: Brian Basco and Gina Timmings. These two characters have already enchanted more than one million players in Europe with their first adventures, which had placed the adventure game genre under the spotlight once again!

Brian and Gina are back in a new adventure, a bit darker than the previous one but still loaded with an omnipresent humor and based on a production worth a big 2D animation film. For the first time in Runaway history, you will take the control of Brian but also of his girlfriend, Gina! Following the story line of the previous episode, A Twist of Fate is also an independent new adventure that players who have never played Runaway before will fully enjoy.

Runaway: A Twist of Fate has visually improved thanks to a new graphic engine. The game now has high resolution backgrounds, more detailed and expressive characters, and more realistic animations... The interface has also been improved and offers an inventory allowing you to check each item from every angle possible. You will also find an ingenious hint system that will guide you throughout difficult situations without giving away the solution to the puzzles.

Of course, both the particular visual style and the omnipresent humour that appealed to the players have been retained in order to make A Twist of Fate a rich episode, full of novelties and unexpected turns yet still faithful to the Runaway spirit.


Runaway « A Twist of Fate » is scheduled to be released in the fourth quarter of 2009 on PC and Nintendo DS

The teaser can be seen HERE.

Just for a quick "revising" you can read Becky's review of Runaway: A Road Adventure and L4L's review of Runaway 2: The Dream of the Turtle

lol It looks like Gina's having more fun than Brian, doesn't it? I liked the bit with the fire and the ping pong player.

Thanks for the links, Carla! I really looking forward to this one! thumbsup

I'm also sorry to see the series end, but I wonder if it means they will focus on a game with a new story. That would be something to look forward to. smile

We find there a disillusioned Brian Basco, on the run in the middle of New York City. A beautiful series of images, great opportunity to witness the incredible details given to the many scenes of this gorgeous graphical adventure.


Enjoy! fall

and the press release explaining the screesnhots:

Quote:
The great adventure game Runaway: A Twist of Fate's release is less than a month away and we are pleased to present a new series of images of the game. Madrid Pendulo Studio has worked very hard to make this final Runaway adventure the best of all and to beautifully put an end to a saga that had a strong influence on adventure games over the past few years.

The adventure has never been so beautiful. It is based on a deep story full of twists that often humorously pays tribute to movies or cult series. The game has been largely improved visually, thanks to a new game engine: high resolution backgrounds, more detailed characters, livelier animations and more expression during dialogs that give the impression of watching a great animated movie.

For the first time, the game offers players funny and inventive help from the "players in distress" office managed by Joshua, one of the series' crazy characters. Always with great humor, Joshua's interventions will point the players in the right direction for any puzzles. Calling Joshua is always funny and represents a story within the story.
