The Adventure Company Signs Nintendo DS Adaptation of Feature Film Inkheart
Every Story Ever Written is Just Waiting to Become Reality
The Adventure Company, a leading publisher of interactive entertainment software, today announced it will publish Inkheart for Nintendo DS™. Based on the feature film adaptation of the best-selling Cornelia Funke novel, Inkheart brings high-quality, beautiful graphics to your DS in the fantastic and lovingly detailed world of Inkheart.
“To launch an adventure game in conjunction with its feature film release is an exciting opportunity for us,” said Brian Gladman, Global Product Manager at The Adventure Company. “Adventure enthusiasts can see the movie and then become a part of the story themselves by playing the game. The story has all the components for a successful transition to a DS game, fantasy, intrigue, exploration, character development and puzzle solving. We can’t wait to put it out there!”
Inkheart is the story of Meggie, a young girl whose father has a secret magical ability; he can bring book characters to life simply by reading the story aloud! It sounds like a wondrous gift, but evil lurks within the pages of a rare children’s fable…
Players will embark on a compelling and exciting action adventure, all while solving tricky puzzles, playing challenging mini-games and facing difficult tasks. There are four playable characters to chose from, Meggie, Mo, Dustfinger or Farid, who will each take players on a dangerous adventure to save the world from the dark powers of evil characters, brought to life from the pages of a children’s novel.
Inkheart is set to release worldwide January 2009 for a suggested retail price of $29.99 USD. The movie trailer can be viewed at www.inkheartmovie.com and further information about the game can be found on our website at www.adventurecompanygames.com
