[prMac.com] Cambridge, Massachusetts - Stem Stumper, the innovative puzzle game you can play with your eyes closed is now available in French, Italian, German and Spanish. And to celebrate we're lowering the price of Stem Stumper on 7/5 until 7/11. We've also updated Stem Stumper Lite, our free version that let's you try 20 of our brain teasing levels for free before buying the full game.
Stem Stumper has been hailed by several sources with Kotaku calling it "... a marvelously novel experience" and No Eyes Needed saying, "... the soundscape of Stem Stumper [is] captivating". You can find translated versions of this press release in our full press kit.
The inaugural game of Ananse Productions, Stem Stumper is built from the ground up to be enjoyed by both the iPhone's burgeoning blind community and fully sighted players around the world. Stem Stumper is fully integrated with VoiceOver, Apple's builtin screen reader for iOS devices. And if you think you can solve our puzzles with a blindfold on, we've included a sound only "sonar" mode.

Kwasi Mensah, lead developer and programmer has worked on games as varied as Green Day: Rock Band, Borderlands and Mass Effect: Pinnacle Station.
