cdv USA Partners with Marc Ecko Entertainment to Deliver "I Heart Geeks!" to the DS Pop culture mogul to co-produce physics-based puzzle game for Nintendo DS
cdv Software Entertainment USA is pleased to today announce I Heart Geeks!, the ultimate puzzle experience that challenges players to create sophisticated and humorous contraptions using dozens of objects and the laws of real-world physics to solve over 100 brain teasers. I Heart Geeks! is slated for a September/October 2008 release on the DS.
Produced in cooperation with Marc Ecko Entertainment, the game features a tongue-in-cheek story and hip art style where the brainy geek overcomes the brawny (and bullying) jocks, winning the heart of the beautiful cheerleader. A friendly interface and helpful tutorials along with the gradual introduction of puzzles of ever-increasing difficulty and complexity, multiple solutions, and wireless support to allow players to face off against one another in timed puzzle-solving races round out the features.
“We are thrilled to work with Marc Ecko and his team to provide I Heart Geeks! With a hip art style and a tongue-in-cheek back story,” said Mario Kroll, cdv USA’s Director of Marketing and Public Relations.”This fits wonderfully with the accessible and maddeningly-addictive gameplay, as gamers of all ages try to solve physics-based puzzles and construct the most improbable machines.”
“Here at Ecko Entertainment we were instantaneously hooked to the unique game mechanic of the original European product, and realized that we wanted to be part of the effort that brought this great title to the states.” said Marc Fernandez, Vice President of Marc Ecko Entertainment.
