[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - Several bands from this year's Austin City Limits music festival are currently lost in translation. Say What You See: Music Fest, developed by Big Ideas Corporation, is a cryptic, hidden-object puzzle game for the iPhone, containing clues to over 50 chart-topping bands and musical artists hidden throughout the hand-painted landscape.
To coincide with this weekend's ACL festival, Say What You See: Music Fest will be available for free download in the iTunes App Store. For additional celebration, brand new, custom-created puzzles were made and commissioned from the internationally renowned artist, Amie Bolissian. These never before seen puzzles will be released on the Say What You See: Music Fest Facebook page for fan contests leading up to and during the festival.
Created and hand-painted by artist Amie Bolissian, the elaborate world of Say What You See: Music Fest contains clues in the form of visual catchphrases representing bands and musical artists, ultimately teasing users and challenging them to decipher the hints. For example, the image of the arcade system burning is a clue to Arcade Fire and the half cent piece is actually rapper 50 Cent.
Say What You See: Music Fest launched last month in the UK App Store and became an overnight sensation, soaring to the # 3 position for overall games, and currently maintains a top 5 position for music games.
