The French publisher, Anuman Interactive has signed an exclusive co-edition and distribution agreement with Big Fish Games for the Syberia game license on PC and iOS (iPhone and iPad).

Quote:
Developer and publisher partners since early 2010, Anuman Interactive and Big Fish Games continue to pool their energy and have announced an exclusive agreement for distribution of the Syberia game license for PC, iPhone and iPad. This agreement includes the first two parts of the Syberia saga and grants exclusive distribution rights to Big Fish Games, the category leader in premium casual games.
Created in 2002 by the author Benoit Sokal and published by Microïds, Syberia is an adventure video game series that has been a huge success on PC, Playstation® 2TM, Xbox® and Nintendo® DS. With more than 2 million copies sold, Syberia appeals to players because of its unique atmosphere, endearing characters and the graphic quality of its scenery. Today, the Microïds brand and Syberia belong to the publisher Anuman Interactive, which continues to keep the license alive on new supports.

Following the announcement of this partnership, Stéphane Longeard, Anuman Interactive’s CEO, adds with much enthusiasm, “In the framework of our international development and in line with our strategy to adapt our licenses to new digital supports, it was essential to transfer Syberia 1 and 2 to mobile devices. We are delighted to be co-editing these adaptations with Big Fish Games, and we are convinced that it is the perfect partnership for targeting the general public. And, as far as we are concerned, we are continuing to work on a follow-up to the license”.

“The Syberia license is a must for all adventure game enthusiasts, and is a great addition to our product catalog” said Paul Thelen, founder of Big Fish. “We are looking forward to a lasting partnership with Anuman Interactive, a company that shares our mission of offering high-quality video games that appeal to a very wide audience, from novices to experienced gamers”.


Information about the release of these adaptations will be communicated by Big Fish Games in 2012.

Keep smiling!

Be still my beating heart! When I saw the thread title:

"Syberia will soon be a..."

I thought you were announcing the long awaited sequel.
But the announcement says nothing of the kind. frown12
I hope this partnership leads to one someday.

yesI hope for a sequel too-just replayed both Syberia games together-love the characters, the story, the places-everything about this series. I keep wondering what happened to Kate
Like Big Fish too-maybe they will expand into more adventure games.

What about the Syberia 1 and 2 for PC that sites like GOG and DotEMU are selling? Currently both these games are $4.99 at GOG because they're having a Holiday sale. What does "exclusive co-edition and distribution agreement" mean? Does it mean other sites won't be able to sell the games any more?

That is a good question, Jenny. That's exactly what it seems to mean.

I find it odd that they would include the first two games made for the PC in that agreement since everybody and his brother already has it and it seems a tad unlikely they'd sell 2 million more copies. But then BFG, which already has it for download, may have insisted.

If editing the game for iPhone and iPad leads to revived interest in Syberia, Anuman will probably do alright by it. But I can just imagine what a "follow-up to the licence" would be like. Look at The Art of Murder. And, oh, joy, another client to deal with.

I finished Syberia II (for the first time) about 10 minutes ago. I'm still smiling from it.

This sentence gives me hope for another sequel: "And, as far as we are concerned, we are continuing to work on a follow-up to the license"

By the way, I used BigFish to play both Syberia and Syberia II. It worked well for me.

Thanks Carla for passing this along.

I got my "Adventure Classics - Syberia Collection" from Big Fish about a couple of weeks ago. In addition to Syberia 1 & 2 it included Sokal's "Amerzone." Even though I already own all 3 games, I got it because all 3 games are on one DVD in the collection, a win in my opinion.

Ces -- I noticed Big Fish games on disk at Target recently. Is that where you got this collection? Or is Big Fish selling the disk version online?

There's an example of the type of Big Fish box I saw at Target here. But searching Target's online store doesn't bring up Syberia. headscratch

Gamehouse is very invasive with their software BabaLa, I recommend finding another source.

I didn't know that. They recently have started offering more LFAs: the Syberias, the Egypt series, Green Moon, Nancy Drew, Doctor Who and Nostradamus I& II. Most of their games are usually lightweight.

By invasive, do you mean malware?

THey use tracking software that monitors your usage beyond the scope of their site. It is part of RealNetworks.

Be careful of Nostradamus. It will not play correctly on Win 7. The characters' movement is shuddery and jerky.

If you want either of the Syberias, buy them on GOG. The price is about the same as anywhere else but you're also supporting a website with a solid no-DRM policy. And they sometimes have it on sale. Or you can get the games in a jewelcase from Dave at Interact and support someone who still gets the boxed games for us. And gives great service.

I'm very excited about this! I played the 2 games last year. Such bizarre but extremely fun story lines for each place! Thoroughly enjoyed it!
