MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES
‘ESCAPE THE MUSEUM’ FOR Wii
Popular Hunt and Find Online Game
Comes to Console this Holiday Season
Majesco Entertainment Company, an
innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Escape
the Museum for Wii. Based on the popular online hunt and find game from Gogii
Games, Escape the Museum is being developed by Majesco Studios and will be
available in retail outlets this holiday for only $19.99.
"Although an incredibly successful
PC genre, the hunt and find adventure category has yet to be introduced on Wii,"
said Liz Buckley, Director of Marketing, Majesco. "Escape the Museum’s online
success coupled with category opportunity and an attractive price point make
this an ideal title to bring to market."
In Escape the Museum, a devastating
earthquake has rocked the foundations of the National Museum of History and
players must help Susan Anderson, who was knocked unconscious by falling debris
while searching the museum for survivors, escape from the crumbling building to
the safety outside. Thwarted by doors blocked with rubble and tripped alarm
systems, players wander through the museum’s maze of 12 different hunt and find
areas and 25 action-packed adventure scenes, using the Wii Remote to uncover
hidden exits and save priceless archaeological artifacts. Along the way, players
will solve puzzles, consult a map and access hints to help them inch closer to
freedom and a joyful reunion with Susan’s lost daughter, Caitlin.
Escape the Museum for Wii is
expected to release this holiday for $19.99.
