Evil Under the Sun Comes to Wii!
The Adventure Company and JoWooD Productions, leading publishers of adventure games worldwide, are pleased to announce Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun is under development for Wii™, set to be released in October 2008.
Based on the novel Evil Under the Sun by the world’s best-known mystery author, this is the second title from The Adventure Company’s successful Agatha Christie video game series to release on Wii. Evil Under the Sun takes advantage of the unique features of the Wii, such as group gameplay, allowing groups of friends and families to gather around the television, sharing the Wii Remote™, discussing and solving puzzles together.
Famous detective Hercule Poirot is back in typical style, turning up at just the right time to begin an investigation into the murder of a famous actress during what should have been the start of a relaxing holiday.
Taking on the role of Hercule Poirot, players can scour a stunning tropical island for clues and delve deeper into the mysterious relationships between over 20 unique characters to search out the killer.
“Agatha Christie fans will be thrilled to literally step into the shoes of Hercule Poirot through the unique playing features of the Wii in Evil Under the Sun,” said Byron Gaum, Global Product Marketing Manager at The Adventure Company. “The game has stunning environments for want-to-be sleuths to explore, a cast of exceptionally rendered characters to interrogate, each with their own unique personality, and a variety of puzzles to solve.”
