MumboJumbo
Introduces New IP, Genre: Casual Adventure

Samantha Swift and the Hidden
Roses of Athena combines seek-and-find with adventure

MumboJumbo today unveiled their
newest game, Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena. Unlike other casual
game titles, Samantha Swift combines hidden object game-play with puzzles and
overlays them on an adventure story, creating the long-awaited casual adventure.

“Samantha Swift is an incredibly fun
game—we’ve taken all the things that casual gamers love about our games and
combined them to branch out with a new game and a new genre, casual adventure,”
said Mark Cottam, CEO of MumboJumbo. “This is an episodic story that features
really quality artwork and complex yet relatable characters, which our players
will really enjoy.”

Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses
of Athena takes players on an adventure through six exotic locations as the
heroine Sam, archeologist, adventurer and curator for The Secrets Lost Museum.
When Sam sets out to find the Scepter of Zeus, she stumbles upon one of the
greatest finds of our lifetime, the shield of Athena. However, she also runs
into Ravena Stryker, a greedy treasure hunter who is keeping a close watch over
Sam. As Sam travels the globe in search of the missing Roses of Athena, she’s in
constant contact with associates Dr. Norwynn Butler and Adam Woodson, who help
her solve puzzles by providing important information and assistance along the
journey.

“We’re really proud to bring this
kind of classic story with innovative game play to a new audience,” said Cottam.
“I think that players will really enjoy getting to know Sam, and following her
on this and her many adventures to come.”

  • More than 700 objects to seek and
    find in more than 50 levels

  • Combines two popular game modes:
