[prMac.com] Warsaw, Poland - Codeminion, leading developer and publisher of award-winning casual games such as Ancient Quest of Saqqarah, StoneLoops! of Jurassica, Magic Match and Phantasmat, announced the release of Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal, their successful adventure game on the recently open Mac App Store for the price of $9.99.
The game takes Brunhilda, a young linguistics student from New York, on an unexpected wild journey to the varied lands of the Magical Realm - a place she thought was just an innocent, weird fantasy of her eccentric aunt. The story focuses on an ancient prophecy and makes Brunhilda personally responsible for solving the great mystery of fading magic and, as it turns out, also saving the world. Together with her bag-entrapped sarcastic demon companion, Brunhilda will learn how to construct a flying broom, dare to disturb sleeping dragons, deal with air pirates and learn the arcane crafts of Wizardry, Alchemy and Telepathy minigames. The story is packed with many twists and turns, humorous dialogues and the gameplay is a mixture of hidden object mechanic, puzzles and point and click quest solving.
Brunhilda and the Dark Crystal most prominent features include:
* Clever blend of classic adventure and hidden object game mechanics
* Over 6 hours of gameplay (longer than typical casual game)
* 10 different lands to visit with multiple locations and NPC characters
* Engaging, epic and humorous story
* All character dialogues with full professional voice over
* Beautiful hand drawn graphics
* 3 arcane mini-games to master
"The game has been in production for almost two years, but it was all worth the effort. The end result has totally surpassed our expectations and I'm sure that gamers all over the world will appreciate all the attention to detail that Twinbottles put into the game," says Maciej Biedrzycki, Codeminion co-owner and one of the people responsible for the quality assurance of the game. "We are thrilled by the positive initial reception of the game. We've been doing open and closed beta tests for the past two months and the game has already received countless positive and enthusiastic reviews," he adds.
In 2008 two game developers founded Twin Bottles S.C. with one purpose in mind - to make games they themselves would like to play. Since then they are creating not just highly polished, beautiful games, but real adventures.
