Cursed Mountain Climbs Into
Deep Silver Inc. today announced
that the highly anticipated Wii exclusive survival horror game Cursed Mountain
has shipped out to retail stores.
"Deep Silver has taken great care to
craft this unique, atmospheric experience exclusively for Wii owners," IGN said
of the game. "And after having some hands-on time with the game
ourselves…we’re believers." Destructoid commented, "The game has all the
makings for one of the best horror titles on the Wii." Kotaku added, "By the
third level, Cursed Mountain was making me downright anxious both with its
setting… and with its plot."
Set in the late 1980s, gamers take
on the role of the fearless mountaineer Eric Simmons as he climbs into the
Himalayan mountains on a quest to find his brother, Frank, who went missing
while in pursuit of an ancient artefact, known as the Terma, a key piece of
wisdom that was written down in ancient times and magically hidden until such a
time when the wisdom is needed. As Eric ascends the mountain, he encounters an
ancient curse: the souls of the people who died in that region are stuck in
bardo, caught in the shadow world between physical life on Earth and Nirvana.
Cursed Mountain was developed by
Deep Silver Vienna, and is rated Mature. For more information, visit
